Nice, but still supported with SCCM2012 SP1 ? The client Appv need to upgrade to this new version ?
Any release notes available with a list of fixes included in this release?
Is the sequenced version of the App-V 5.0 Client UI available also? I know from beta this was going to be provided as an additional app/
Is it "App-V 5.0 R2" or "App-V 5.0 SP2" that was just released? All the other blogs are calling it SP2, and my download of MDOP 2013 R2 only has App-V 5.0_SP2 installers.
Sorry, it's App-V 5.0 SP2. The post should be updated now.
I've downloaded the MDOP 2013 iso. It contains only the client and sequencer under the 5.0_SP2 installers folder. Are there discrete updates to 5.0_SP1 server or will they be available via Microsoft Update?
Also, there is no RDS client for appv 5 sp2. is it missing or there any alternate location to download?
After updating the client from SP2 beta to SP2 a lot of virtual applications that worked fine before don't start anymore :/
Are we likely to see App-v SP2 appear on Microsoft's update catalogue? (if yes, any estimated ETA?)
Where can i Get the sequenced (.appv) version of the Client UI that was availabe in the Beta. It does not appear to be included in the MDOP 2013R2 release!
The RDS client has never been included in MDOP. For production you need to download that from the MS Licensing site and is only available if you have a RDS license. Or you can get it from TechNet under A for App-V rather than D for mDOP.
I'm in the same boat as VB above. I've downloaded the MDOP 2013 R2 iso (filename SW_DVD5_Dsktp_Optimization_Pck_SA_2013_R2_English_MVLS_MLF_X19-11716.ISO) from the volume licensing center but it only includes the app-v client and sequencer, not the server. I looked in the app-v for RDS and desktop (5.0 SP2) isos but they both just include the client and sequencer as well.
Is this supposed to be in a different download?
Sorry for the confusion but SP2 does not include an update for the server piece. We have more information on that here: blogs.technet.com/.../important-notes-regarding-the-app-v-5-0-sp2-update.aspx.
app-v apps are failing to launch using sp2 client and app-v 5 sequencer packages. are sequences also should be updated to sp2 for the apps to work? or sp2 client should be able to launch sp1 or 5.0 sequences?
Hi, i am trying to create a connection group between office 2013 and adobe packages. and on client side, i get the following error in the event log, "Connection group could not be published, because the virtual COM Settings of the individual packages conflict. how to resolve this issue?
