Upgrading and deploying AppV 5.0 client via SCCM 2012

If you want to deploy AppV 5.0 packages, a client is needed. In this article I will describe all the steps that are needed to install the latest AppV 5.0 client. When writing this article it is AppV 5.0 SP3 with hotfix 2.

This version is not available as a ‘complete’ version. First you will have to install AppV 5.0 SP3 client, followed by the hotfix. Fortunately you can ‘merge’ this 2 versions in one installer.

Click to Run and Windows Installer editions do not get along

When reparing an Office 365 Click to Run package you might get this error message:

Error message: we're sorry, Office Click to Run installer encountered a problem because you have these Windows Installer based Office programs installed on your computer.

Error message: we’re sorry, Office Click to Run installer encountered a problem because you have these Windows Installer based Office programs installed on your computer.

Then the repair stops and you end up with an installation with – in this example – Visio 2013 Standard but without Office 365.

In this article I will describe how you can solve this issue.

Load all AppV 5.0 packages into the AppV Cache

After the migration from SCCM 2007 to SCCM 2012 some users had an issue with accessing their AppV 5.0 packages: the virtual package could not be found in the ccmcache. That was true, as the package had not been used before the SCCM 2007 to SCCM 2012 migration and after the migration the ccmcache was deleted. So the only solution was to mount all AppV 5.0 packages. That will download the virtual package from the ccmcache into the AppV 5.0 cache.

Uninstall AppV 5.0 package automatically if an user is removed from a user based collection in SCCM 2012

With SCCM 2007 you had the option to automatic uninstall virtual applications. In the package you selected ‘Remove this package from clients when it is no longer advertised’. If the user was no longer member of the collection the virtual application was removed.

SCCM 2007 Remove this package from clients when it is no longer advertised.

SCCM 2007 Remove this package from clients when it is no longer advertised.

With SCCM 2012 this feature has been discontinued.
