own app (windows metro form) virtualization RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    We are trying to assembling an application via app-v and then publish it on a virtual app infrastructure based on Citrix XenApp. The app is made in the form of a “metro” app and also it has some dependencies to other apps in install process: firstly need to install a SDK (which needs to be started as a separate process to communicate with an USB device; this is not a driver), then install a windows service and then install our app using a power shell script.

    We can’t find in the app-v docs how to assembling a metro app that need other app preinstalled in order to function properly.

    Could you help us to know if it’s possible this scenario using app-v?

  • 1) Wrong forum (this is for recipes, not questions)

    2) No.  "metro" apps (aka AppX based apps; Windows Universal Apps; etc...) cannot be virtualized via App-V (at this time but probably forever).  They have a different sandboxing method based on the App-V technology.
