Andrew posted a quick post up on the App-V blog.

Hi all,

Just a quick post to let you know that we updated the version of the Management Server and Desktop Client that we have available over on the Connect site (connect.microsoft.com). The new build number for each component is 4.5.0.1308.

What’s changed?

- For the Desktop Client:

o We fixed an issue that makes sure the integration with the recently-released RC of SCCM 2007 R2 works as expected after an upgrade of the App-V client.

o We fixed a problem that was causing some applications to launch slower than expected when the client was installed on a system that also had CA’s eTrust Antivirus product installed and performing real-time monitoring.

- For the Management Server:

o We fixed an issue that caused Publishing Refresh to fail if a user was a member of a large number of Active Directory groups.

How do I install the new version?

- If you have not previously installed any version of the Desktop Client or the Management Server:

o You may use the new version for a clean install by running the self-extracting archive for each component (available on the Connect site) to begin the installation.

o You do not need to install any previous version first.

- If you have previously installed version 4.1 or higher of the Desktop Client or the Management Server:

o You may upgrade your previous installation by running the self-extracting archive for each component (available on the Connect site) to begin the upgrade.

o You do not need to uninstall any previous version of the client.

- If you have previously installed a version of the Desktop Client or the Management Server older than version 4.1:

o You must uninstall the previous version and then perform a new installation as above.

If you are not affected by these issues, there is no need to upgrade from the previous RC version (4.5.0.1305).

Thanks,

The App-V Product Group
