    If for instance you have an infamous "Educational" resources cdrom, which requires flash player, then you will install both applications at the same time when sequencing.

    If you're looking at runtime integration of two large packages, then you should investigate the dependencies attribute within the osd file.
    Code:
    <VIRTUALENV TERMINATECHILDREN="FALSE">
    <DEPENDENCIES>
    <CODEBASE HREF="rtsp://%SFT_SOFTGRIDSERVER%:554/Off2K7.v4/Off2K7.v4.sft" GUID="9F41D2D7-D2A8-4102-B6FB-A1E60C9DD133" SYSGUARDFILE="Off2K7.v4\osguard.cp"/>
    </DEPENDENCIES>
    <ENVLIST/>
    </VIRTUALENV>
    The above is the dependency for office in our sims.net osd file.

    Never seen Thin App - is it the same as App-v but with vmware instead?

    Any good sites to look at besides the obvious

    Hi Matt

    Quick question

    I have created a content drive on my server - had to use drive M as i use Q on other things.

    I have installed the client on to my workstation to test but it has created a Q drive - i know there is somewhere you can change the drive letter - but can't remember any ideas?


    Thanks

    Chris

    Control Panel -> Admin Tools -> App-V Client MMC

    Right click application the root and select properties. Change Drive Letter, under the File System tab.

    That will require a reboot.

    Hi Matt

    One other question - do you have to sequence on the type of machine that you wil be deploying to - or is it best to dequence just on a virtual and snapshot it back?

    Have you had experience of any apps not working?

    Thanks

    No, you don't have to sequence on an identical machine. We use a standard, non domain joined virtual pc image to sequence apps.
