This week I am releasing a new white paper that covers using the App-V 4.5 client in "stand-alone" mode. This paper is an outgrowth of my interest in understanding the under-documented capabilities in the client. In particular, I look at how we can configure and use the client with streaming and perform active upgrades. But there is a plethora of other trivial information as well.

This opens the possibility of using App-V with nothing more than a file share for the back end. It isn't for everyone and you will need to roll some of your own scripting, but if you have a need for the stand-alone client, let's say for a few employees in a remote office or who travel most of the time, this might be of interest.
I had promised this paper out to the community some time ago, and have used my presentation at Briforum on Thursday as a kick in the pants to finally get it out.
