Greetings! Last week, Karri announced the general availability of MDOP 2012, which included the release of two much awaited products: the new Microsoft User Experience Virtualization (UE-V), and one of the biggest releases in Microsoft Application Virtualization’s (App-V) history – App-V 5.0.

The blog is broken out into three sections: how to use App-V 5.0 for a more flexible virtualization solution, how App-V’s integrated platform offers a more consistent experience, and powerful...(read more)

Any idea if you guys will release the DB creation scripts like you did with App-V 4.6?
