I know. It's summer and there just isn't much new news until the fall. But in addition to working on my golf swing I've been spending my summer kicking the tires of the new version of SoftGrid, or as it is now known App-V (short for Application Virtualization), that is due to be released in early September. I even have my son working for me, sequencing apps part-time.
My friend Kevin Kaminski and I have been getting our updated "Masters" Level training class ready; putting the new App-v release candidate through its paces, checking out the new SCCM R2 integration, Ops Manager integration, stand-alone client, and even the "lightweight" server. A lot of new stuff, for sure.
Anyway, if you missed your chance to see the new release at the Briforum session I did in June, I have a new video posted to my site today, at www.tmurgent.com
In Episode 8, we use the App-V 4.5 RC1 sequencer to sequence OpenOffice 3.0 Beta 2. As part of the sequence, we create the MSI, and then use it to deploy to a "stand-alone" 4.5 client. We hit a snag, and debug the sequence to solve. 36 minutes in length.
