Virtualizing Enterprise Desktops and Apps: App-V Clients and App Sequencing

IT administrators who want to gain experience using Microsoft virtualization technologies to plan for and implement application and desktop virtualization in a medium to large organization; learners looking to prepare for the 70-694: Virtualizing Enterprise Desktops and Apps certification exam


Expected Duration
155 minutes

The App-V Desktop client needs to be installed on all computers that require access to virtualized applications that will be published using App-V. This client ensures the applications run properly and appear to the user as a traditional application on a local computer. To package the applications for deployment to the clients they need to be sequenced using the App-V Sequencer. This course will demonstrate how to deploy and configure the App-V client. It will demonstrate how to install the App-V Sequencer and how to sequence applications and deploy them. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Microsoft Exam 70-694: Virtualizing Enterprise Desktops and Apps certification exam with credit toward MCP, Microsoft Specialist credentials.
