This client ensures the applications run properly and appear to the user as a traditional application on a local computer. To package the applications for deployment to the clients they need to be sequenced using the App-V Sequencer. This course will demonstrate how to deploy and configure the App-V client. It will demonstrate how to install the App-V Sequencer and how to sequence applications and deploy them. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Microsoft Exam 70-694: Virtualizing Enterprise Desktops and Apps certification exam with credit toward MCP, Microsoft Specialist credentials.
