We have had the 32-bit fixup tool available for a while (to correct issues in App-V 4.6 packages saved out from AVE prior to version 2.2.6), but since the recent events there appeared to be a need to do the opposite as well.

Oh man, I cannot believe that the old issue kind of came back to haunt us. Back in the last year we fixed an issue in our App-V -related products that caused all App-V 4.6 packages to be flagged as 64-bit packages, now it was the reverse.
Windows Team blog has just announced, for the first time publicly, development and the details of App-V 5.0. Along with the new App-V version. Along with the next App-V version, the blog post also announced Microsoft’s User Environment Virtualization (UE-V) product (which was previously known with codename “Park City”).
In the interest of full disclosure, I was recently contacted by a publisher who asked if I would like to review a new book, called Microsoft Application Virtualization Advanced Guide and written by an Argentinian(?) guy called Augusto Alvarez. As the topic sounds interesting enough, I was actually glad to have an opportunity to take a closer look at this book I actually already had heard about before.
Recently I was involved with the customer who uses, amongst the traditional App-V Management Server –based RTSP publishing, a HTTP publishing script that was posted in the App-V Team’s blog mid-2010. This script constructs necessary APPLIST information out of manifest XML files detected on a virtual directory, but unfortunately it has some shortcomings which I decided to fix and present an enhanced version here as a replacement.
