Our friends over in the MDOP team just released the beta version of the Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) 4.6 today. We know that many of you are looking at application virtualization in both the context of your existing environment and also as part of your migration planning to Windows 7.
Besides some enhancements to the sequencer to simplify the workflow for creating virtual application the team has added the ability to sequence 64 bit applications. As 64 bit computing becomes more common place in the Enterprise this first to market feature removes another challenge in your planning and rollout strategies.
Customers who want to get familiar App-V 4.6 Beta can register and download via Microsoft Connect. As always, we want to hear from you. We build great products by including feedback from our customers, so go ahead, test App-V 4.6 and give us feedback via Connect.
For customers who are currently using App-V 4.5 CU1 with their 32-bit Windows 7 systems, we will release an update to the 4.5 version of the product. App-V 4.5 SP1 will be available within 90 days of Windows 7 general availability and provide full support for running App-V 4.5 and Windows 7 (32-bit) in production. Enjoy!
