So how can you get your hands on App-V 4.5 RTM, well the answer my friends is on https://licencing.microsoft.com.
You can download it today from the MVLS website.You will obviously need to have a valid agreement to download software.
1. Go to https://licensing.microsoft.com
2. Log-in using Passport account
3. Go to the Products Download Section
4) Under Windows released 2008-09-04 you should see Application Virtualization 4.5.
5) Once you select that you can select Language and your download speed and away you go!
Note: Remember you are governed by license agreements and product use rights so you must have a valid MDOP license.
Also be aware that this download name will likely change over the coming days to reflect Microsoft Application Virtualization Hosting for Desktops 4.5. Do not be confused by this ! These are App V 4.5 bits and valid for you to download.
Happy Virtualization peps!
What about us poor Microsoft partners?
It's not on MSDN or TechNet yet.
Some of us have 4.5 deployments scheduled for early October and need to begin testing ASAP!
Thanks for the clarification assistance - we were looking under the SA section & not finding it. I just downloaded the bits.
On my VL site, it's listed as "Application Virtualization Hosting for Desktops 4.5" That's the right one, yes?
Yeap thats the one!
"Also be aware that this download name will likely change over the coming days to reflect Microsoft Application Virtualization Hosting for Desktops 4.5. Do not be confused by this ! These are App V 4.5 bits and valid for you to download."
Still nothing on MSDN and TechNet.
I think it's only available through Software Assurance.
With regards to MSDN etc I am trying to find out a release date for you all. As soon as i know! You all will know.
We value all our Partners and MSDN subscribers and you all our never forgotten!
Hope to have some feedback for you all soon!
Any update on where to find this on MSDN for partners? I wanted to demo this on Friday and I can't find the bits.
if you can get on MSDN or technet look at MDOP app v is included in this.
Is there a list of fixes / changes from the RC version to the RTM version ?
We have Software Assurance and access to the MDOP package. However there is no "AppV" package under windows at MVLS.
Anyone know how to get a hold of it?
So for the software insurance app-v release it is actually bundled with the MDOP 2008 R2, which is at the bottom of the download site under "Software Assurance" and than "Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack For Software Assurance 2008 R2 2008-09-29 "
Hope this helps
Is App-V RTM the full production (Non-Beta) version of App-V? I just want to make sure I'm using the most recent version.
The full MDOP R2 release is what you are after. This is located on the MVLS site under product downloads > Software Assurance > Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack For Software Assurance 2008 R2
The Full windows desktop client RTM is there.
