App-V – Installing the App-V 5.0 Sequencer

Before you get started on installing the App-V 5.0 Sequencer, there are a few things that you may have to do to get your environment ready.

  • Create a Windows 7 Virtual Desktop machine with 2 partitions eg. C:\ and Q:\. This will be used to create the App-V packages. It is recommended that the Sequencing Workstation be on the OS that is the lowest that is used in your environment. (In this case, in my test environment, I don't really have anything older than Windows 7, Windows 2008 R2.)
  • Download the Desktop Optimization Pack 2012.
  • Make sure .NET 4.0 is installed. (If Windows 7)
  • Powershell 3.0 (If Windows 7)
  • Make sure KB2533623 is installed. (If Windows 7)
