This 3 day instructor lead course is designed to give delegates the detailed knowledge needed to sequence applications for use in a Microsoft Application Virtualization Environment 5.0, using SP2 Rollup 4, and to troubleshoot problems. Both SP2 and Rollup 4 add a number of new features that will be discussed in this course.
Sequencing Applications using Microsoft Application Virtualization 5.0
- A good Windows 7 client operating system knowledge.
- A detailed understanding of how Applications install.
- Knowledge of application repackaging concepts.
- Understanding of MSI technologies.
- Attending QAAPPVIMP5 'Implementing and Migration to Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) 5.0' prior to this course would be beneficial but not mandatory.
At the end of this course you will have a deep understanding of the Application Virtualization Sequencing process and be able to install and configure the Sequencing workstation and create Application Virtualization Packages from standard applications to be deployed in their App-V 5.0 environments.
The course is written to be Deployment type agnostic and uses PowerShell for manual deployment in the majority of the lab exercises. Where there is a difference in behaviour of the package when deployed using SCCM vs App-V management server then these differences will be discussed.
Module 1: Introducing the Microsoft Application Virtualization Sequencing Process
This module describes the key concepts behind Application Sequencing in a Microsoft Application Virtualization environment. The delegate will learn the key components of a package, what applications can and cannot be sequenced and how packages are delivered to the client. We also take a look at how the App-V client software interacts with the package and how to control it using PowerShell. The module finishes by building a sequencing workstation.
Lab 1: Installing the Application Virtualization 5.0 Sequencer.
Module 2: Creating an Application Virtualization Package.
This module starts by discussing the sequencer options and how they influence the package being built. We then go through the detailed steps of creating a package, the importance of create a template file and finally we examine all of the package editing options.
- Lab 2: Sequencing applications.
In this lab we will sequence a basic applications and examine the outcome.
- Lab 3: Sequencing applications.
Module 3: Advanced Sequencing Techniques.
This module examines some advanced sequencing options
- Opening a Package for editing
- Package branching
- Application Connections with Connection groups.
- Integration Points
- Shortcuts and FTA's
- Shell Extension
- Browser Plugins and the Helper Object
- And More….
- Package Accelerators
- Shell extensions
- Browser Plugins
- Using Dynamic Configuration files
- Automating with PowerShell
- Lab 4: Updating an existing package.
- Lab 5: Package Branching.
- Lab 6: Using a package accelerator.
- Lab 7: Shell Extensions.
- Lab 8: Working with Dynamic configuration files.
Module 4: Diagnosing and troubleshooting Techniques Workshop
This last module is delivered in the style of a workshop. We will discover techniques to view the world as the 'bubble' sees it and explore tools that can be used to help identify the causes of programs to fail. The lab time will give the delegates the opportunity to uses these tools against some troublesome applications.
- Lab 9. Troubleshooting Workshop.
