Join this session for a journey through the lifecycle of a Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) 5.0 package. From the birth of a sequenced package through deployment, streaming, configuration, updates, connection groups, user customization and eventual termination. This session is based solely on stand-alone mode, demo-driven, behind-the-scenes views of how each part of the application lifecycle is handled by the App-V Client. No ties to Configuration Manager or Full Infrastructure, just an under the hood insight into how App-V applications are handled regardless of delivery mechanisms.
