Introduction to the Trial Guide

This
T
rial
G
uide
is designed to help
system
administrators
quickly

set up
a limited
Microsoft
®

Application
Virtualization (App
-
V)

evaluat
ion

in a test
environment. This guide
details the
steps necessary to install
Microsoft Application Virtualization server components
for
both
Microsoft Application Virtualization

Management Server and
Microsoft Application Virtualization

Publishing

Server.
The
system adm
inistrator
will
be able to successfully
install Microsoft Application
Virtualizatio
n
Desktop Client
, publish the shortcuts
of sequenced applications, and then stream and run these virtual applications on App
-
V clients.
The
administrator

will

also

learn to
virtualize a select set of applications using
the
Microsoft Application
Virtualization Sequencer.


To help this process flow as smoothly as possible, this guide
should be
read
carefully
before installing the
Microsoft App
-
V platform.

Audience for This
Guide

This guide was written for Microsoft Windows
®

system administrators. As an information technology (IT)
professional,
the user

should have sufficient knowledge and experience to accomplish the following tasks:



Set up operating systems and install appl
ications.



Add computers to domains.



Set up and work comfortably with Active Directory
®

Domain

S
ervice
s

and Microsoft Domain Name
System (DNS).

Product Documentation

Comprehensive

documentation
for App
-
V is available on Microsoft TechNet in the App
-
V TechCe
nter at
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=269780
.


The TechNet documentation includes online Help for the
App
-
V Sequencer, the App
-
V Client, and the App
-
V Server.



Overview of Microsoft
Application Virtualization

Microsoft Application Virtualization
enables

the
administrator

to
deploy, update, and support applications
as services in real time, on an as
-
needed basis. When App
-
V

is used
, individual applications
are
transformed

from locally
installed products into centrally managed services. Applications become
available everywhere they need to be

no computer pre
-
configuration or changes to operating system
settings are required. Microsoft Application Virtualization consists of the following
components
:

Microsoft Application Virtualization Management Server

The App
-
V
Management Server
provides a centralized location to manage
the

App
-
V 5.0 infrastructure

for delivering virtual applications to both
the App
-
V
Desktop Client

and the
Remote Deskto
p Services
(
formerly Terminal Services
)

Client
.
The App
-
V Management Server uses Microsoft SQL Server
®

for its
data store,
where

o
ne or more App
-
V

Management
servers can share a single SQL
Server
data store.
The App
-
V

Management
Server authenticates reques
ts and provides the security, metering, monitoring,
and data gathering
required by the administrator
. The server uses Active Directory and supporting tools to
manage users and applications.


The App
-
V
Management Server
has a

Silverlight
®
-
based
management

site
,

which enables
a
dministrator
configur
ation of

the
App
-
V
infrastructure

from any computer
.
By using this site
, administrators can add
and remove applications,
manipulate shortcuts
, assign access permissions to users and groups
, and
create connection gr
oups
. The App
-
V
Management
Server

is the communication conduit between the
App
-
V
Web
Management Console and the SQL
Server
data store.

These components can all be installed
on a single server computer, or on one or more
separate

computers depending on the
required system
architecture.

For more information on planning and App
-
V infrastructure review
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=269785
.

Microsoft Application Virtualization Publishing Serv
er

The App
-
V Publishing Server
provides App
-
V Clients with entitled applications for the specific user and
hosts the virtual application package for streaming
.
For the purposes of the Trial Guide, the Publishing
Server will be installed on the same machine

as the Management Server. In production these two roles
can be separated
providing

greater scal
ability

of the infrastructure.

Microsoft Application
Virtualization
Desktop Client


The
App
-
V
Windows
Desktop Client

retrieves virtual applications, publishes
the applications on the client
,
and

automatically sets up and manages virtual environments
at runtime on Windows endpoints
.

The
App
-
V Client stores user
-
specific virtual application settings
, such as registry and file changes,

in each
user's profile.

Microsoft Application
Virtualization
Remote Desktop Services

(
RDS
)
Client

The
App
-
V
RDS

Client

enables Remote Desktop Session Host servers

to utilize

the capabilities of the
App
-
V
Desktop Client

for shared desktop sessions
.

Microsoft Application Virtualiza
tion Sequencer

The

App
-
V
Sequencer is a wizard
-
based tool
that
administrators use to
transform traditional applications
into virtual applications. The

Sequencer produces the application “package,” which consists of several
files. These files include a sequ
enced application (
APPV
) file,
a Windows Installer file (MSI
) that can be
deployed to clients configured for standalone operation,
and
several XML files including Report.XML,
PackageName
_DeploymentConfig.XML, and
PackageName_
UserConfig.XM
L. The UserConfig

and
DeploymentConfig XML files are used to configure custom changes to the default behavior of the
package.

Configure the Windows Firewall
for

App
-
V 5.0 client to
server

communication

All communication between the App
-
V Publishing Server and App
-
V Client is initiated by the App
-
V C
lient.
The built
-
in Windows Firewall requires no additional configuration in order for the client to communicate in
this fashion. Some third party firewall block any unknown

outbound

traffic initiated
from a
client.
In this
case, you must

create rules for t
he AppVClient application to initiate outbound connections. Please refer
to third
-
party documentation for further information
about

creating outbound rules.


Installing Microsoft Application Virtualization Sequencer

The
Microsoft Application Virtualization

Sequencer
is used
to create the virtual applications and
application packages
that are

streamed
from the App
-
V
Publishing

Server
to
the App
-
V
Clients.

Before You Install Microsoft Application Virtualization

Sequencer

The Sequencer computer must meet the same minimum requirements as Microsoft Application
Virtualization
Desktop Client
.


Virtual
m
achines are ideal for sequencing because they can easily be
reset
;

however, a

physical computer with a clean image on a local p
artition
can be used
to enable rapid
re
-
imaging after each package sequencing operation has been completed.



NOTE:
Always

sequence 32
-
bit applications on a 32
-
bit sequencing OS.

This includes
sequencing 32
-
bit applications for delivery to 64
-
bit clients. When sequencing 64
-
bit
applications, they must be sequenced on a 64
-
bit sequencing OS and can only be delivered to
64
-
bit clients.



Note: Additional information on sequencing be
yond what is contained in this guide is available on
TechNet at:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en
-
us/library/cc817192.aspx

and at:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en
-
us/appvirtualization/cc843994.aspx


There are two main methods for setting up the Sequencer computer for this trial:

Option 1: Virtual Machine

Perform

a fresh install of a supported operating system to a virtual machine (VM).
Do not

use
a

"standard
desktop image" or install any other applications on this image at this time
. If using Hyper
-
V,

create a
snapshot
; a
fter each
application

sequence
,

copy the se
quence to the content share
,

and
then

apply the
saved snapshot
to get back to a "clean" operating system.

Option 2:
Physical
C
omputer

Perform

a fresh install of a supported operating system
to the physical computer
.
Do not

use
a
"standard
desktop image" or

install any other applications on this image at this time. Us
e

a
disk imaging
utility

to
store a
n

image of the first partition on the second partition. This method
allows rapid restoration of

the
sequencing computer to a "clean" installation of
the

operat
ing system after each time
an

application is
sequenced.


Install Microsoft Application Virtualization Sequencer

Important:

The computer used for the
S
equencer must contain only a fresh installation of the Windows
operating system.

Do not install
Microsoft
Application Virtualization

Sequencer on a computer that hosts
Microsoft Application Virtualization

Management Server or
Microsoft Application Virtualization
Desktop
Client
.

Reminder
:

DO NOT
use a standard desktop image, use a fresh install of the operating

system with no
additional software installed.

Sequencing Silverlight
®

for Internet Explorer

This section
details

the creation of

a virtual environment for Windows Internet Explorer

with the Microsoft
Silverlight plug
-
in
. The
w
eb plug
-
in will appear only
when an instance of Internet Explorer is launche
d
from within the virtual environment
created

for the plug
-
in application. When
Internet Explorer
is launched
from an icon not provided by the App
-
V Client, the plug
-
in will not be available because the plug
-
in is
being virtualized rather than installed o
n the client OS.

Because Internet Explorer is part of the operating
system,
it cannot be sequenced
.
It

will therefore be necessary to

point to the local Internet Explorer
executable file on each Microsoft Application Virtualization

C
lient, and apply the c
hanges within the virtual
environment
so
that
they can interact with
the local environment.

Perform the following
steps
on the App
-
V Sequencer:

Caution:

The

v
irtual
m
achine

used for sequencing

must be reset
,

or if using a physical computer
,

the
clean image must be restored
before
starting

a
new sequencing task
. This
ensures each sequencing
task begins

with a clean system containing only the Sequencer installation. This is a
critical
requirement

for all sequencing work with App
-
V.

The App
-
V

5.0

Sequencer will check the system and
recommend

the machine
be reset
to a clean state if
necessary
.


Figure
19
:
Prepare Computer Screen

Note:
Before sequencing Microsoft Silverlight in this test environment, ensure
the

App
-
V Client and
App
-
V Sequencer workstations do not already have Microsoft Silverlight installed. An easy way to test this
is to launch Internet Explorer on each system, and browse to
http://
