Overview/Description
The App-V Desktop client needs to be installed on all computers that require access to virtualized applications that will be published using App-V. This client ensures the applications run properly and appear to the user as a traditional application on a local computer. To package the applications for deployment to the clients they need to be sequenced using the App-V Sequencer. This course will demonstrate how to deploy and configure the App-V client. It will demonstrate how to install the App-V Sequencer and how to sequence applications and deploy them. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Microsoft Exam 70-694: Virtualizing Enterprise Desktops and Apps certification exam with credit toward MCP, Microsoft Specialist credentials.

Overview/Description
Before you can start to implement a VDI environment for desktops and applications the current environment needs to be assessed, as well as the client requirements. Microsoft offers the Microsoft Assessment and Planning toolkit to do this task. It can ensure applications run in different scenarios, such as having multiple versions of the same application. Once the applications are assessed, App-V can be used to deploy the applications virtually to the clients. This course will demonstrate how to use MAP and how to install the App-V server components.
