hotfixHere’s a great new guide we published on how to sequence Office 2010 using Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.6 SP1.  I didn’t want to post the article in it’s entirety here but there’s a brief intro below as well as a link to the KB itself at the bottom.  And don't forget - we also have the App-V Package Accelerator for Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 available here:

Summary

Virtualizing Microsoft Office 2010 using Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) is a common task in many App-V environments. This document describes a well-defined series of steps designed to aid customers in successfully sequencing Microsoft Office 2010.

This document guides you through the process of sequencing Office 2010 using the App-V 4.6 SP1 sequencer. If you are using the App-V 4.6 sequencer (i.e App-V 4.6 with no service pack), please follow this document instead: Prescriptive guidance for sequencing Office 2010 in Microsoft App-V.

IMPORTANT: Before starting to sequence, we strongly suggest to read this guide completely in order to understand the configuration options available.

Prerequisites

You will need the following software to use this guide:

  • Microsoft Application Virtualization version 4.6 SP1: The App-V 4.6 SP1 Sequencer is installed on the Sequencing workstation. It is recommended to apply the latest App-V updates as well.
  • Microsoft Office 2010 volume SKU (32-bit). Only the 32-bit version of Office 2010 is supported. This may be deployed to either 32 or 64-bit operating systems. We recommend sequencing on the same operating system as that of the operating system to which you will deploy the package.
  • Microsoft Office 2010 Deployment Kit for App-V: The Deployment Kit installs the Office 2010 licensing service and optionally installs proxies to enable integration features.

Introduction

The Microsoft Office 2010 Deployment Kit for App-V is a required component to sequence and deploy Microsoft Office 2010. The deployment kit provides two main functions:

  • Installation and configuration of the Office Software Protection Platform service.

  • Optional configuration of virtualized components to allow for seamless interaction with the operating system.

The Deployment Kit is first installed on the sequencing workstation. The Deployment Kit must also be installed on all App-V clients where your Office 2010 package will be deployed…..
