Hello, We have just released update to Application Virtualization Explorer, version 2.4.5. This update adds explicit support for three new (OSD) policy elements that were introduced in hotfix 8 for 4.6 SP1 and in 4.6 SP2. These policy elements are mainly meant to fix issue with Adobe Reader protected mode and now you can set them directly from AVE’s […]

For a long time already, Application Virtualization Explorer (AVE) has had the ability to set and edit virtualized environment variables per application basis (like you could do in the Sequencer by using that cumbersome OSD -tab), but in the recently released 2.4.0 version we decided to add support for editing variables at the package level too.
We have just released a new version of AVE, version 2.4, which adds some new features and enhances the existing functionality in the product.
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.
In this new series, we’re going to highlight some of the new features that we introduced in Application Virtualization Explorer (AVE), version 2.3, released in December last year (gosh, sounds like a long time ago when said like that!).
It so happened a while ago that I was on consulting day for a customer and we needed to make smallish update to an existing App-V package I originally did with Sequencer (because AVE does not currently have a monitoring functionality nor package creation from scratch). This update was only about adding a bunch of files to the sequence (some additional data/definition files for the application within) and as I did not had AVE installed on their packaging machine, I went with the usual Sequencer route. I soon discovered that I shouldn’t have done that…
App-V OSD scripting with Application Virtualization Explorer, pt. 2 – additional scripting capabilities
In the previous article of AVE’s scripting capabilities, we discovered how AVE implements the basic App-V scripting capabilities – but in much smarter manner and easiness lacking in any other App-V –related tool there is. In this installment, we will see how to take scripting a bit further, by adding additional execution capabilities for our […]
App-V OSD scripting with Application Virtualization Explorer, pt. 1 – integrated script editing experience
In the earlier blog post, we have saw how App-V supports scripting for added package functionality and how it is configured by using the built-in tools (i.e. Sequencer) or manual methods; let’s now look at how our Application Virtualization Explorer (AVE) can make the process much easier for you regardless of the scenario.
Having been inspired by a recent blog posting by Tim Mangan about currently known issues in package branching (and my own previous experiences of the same), both in 4.6 and 4.6 SP1 versions of the App-V Sequencer, I thought about to write a quick and short howto for doing branching operating with our Application Virtualization Explorer (AVE).
