Server App-V 2012 – A First look (really)

So, after trying to install the Server App-V sequencing client on Windows Server 2012 Beta (and failing), I switched back to good ol’ Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 as the testclient.

At least now i’m following the Software Requirements for installing Server App-V

I mounted the DVD/ISO of SCVMM 2012, browsed to the folder SAV\AMD64, and ran SeqSetup.exe, and behold:

And off we go!

Just another EULA to quickly skip through? Well, just note that this product is a part of SCVMM 2012, so no separate licensing for App-V here.


I’m installing this on a clean Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 VM, and it appears it needs these two Visual C++ packages. Good thing they’re packed into the App-V installer 🙂

And we’re done. Now that was easy. Let’s see what we’ve got now:

The App-V Sequencer  Client installed in Program Files (x86)… hey, didn’t I choose the x64 installer of the client? Oh well…

Another thing, notice the Q:\ drive? If you’re already familiar with the current (client) App-V you’ll not be surprised to see this Q; mapping.

Well actually it’s a redirection to the local C:\ drive, as you can see in this picture:

So, client installed, no reboot asked… let’s start packaging then!

Well, in the next posting that is.
