  • Great news

  • Anything coming to the final release where you can add a version of a package?

  • A good start.  A necessary component will be an "Export-AppVPackage" and "Import-AppVPackage".  Export pulls from database configuration info (not OSD source) of Test/Pilot server.  Import is then used to to add package, as configured, into production system.  When I built something similar (not ps), Import needed to make further translations for the production server also.  Quite different than the Add-AppVPackage.

  • Hi znack,

    The package version is extracted from the package's mainfest xml file .. anyway, I'll find a way to add it in the next release. :-)

  • Hi Tim,

    Thanks for your feedback .. I really appreciate this idea and I'll work on it in the upcoming release.

  • Something I wanted to search last week. Great news that Microsoft is extending features for AppV server. Looking forward to do some testing next week.

  • Hi Ivan,

    Thanks for your comment .. I'll be waiting to hear your feedback after next week testing :-) ..

  • Fantastic news! I can't wait to give these a test drive. Will these snappins also work with lightweight streaming services? The queries would be handy...

  • Hello Sherif,

    By adding a version I mean an active upgrade.... it should be a step where you simply reference the _X.sft file in the GUI. I do understand your point of using the manifest to extract your information

  • Hi Sherif,

    Is there any plans from Microsof to officially release your snap-in? Is still beta, isn't?

    I am having errors listing apps and adding new-packages...

    Thanks
