App-V 5.0 Client PowerShell Commands RRS feed

  • Question

  • very nice to finally have App-V 5.0 Released.

    I don't mind about the fully PowerShell environment. that's great.

    but one thing I hoped will be fixed \ visible \ friendly is the access to those PowerShell commands in the background.

    on the client side I know I can click on Show PowerShell Commands to get the list of the commands that were running,

    but how to I copy them to use them manually afterwards?

    I can live with learning all the "Get-AppVPublishServer" or all the other Cmdlets. but what about all those neverending named PackageGUIDS and VersionGUIDS? why can't I just Copy\Paste that info similar to what we had in App-V 4.6?

    is there any way that I just don't know of?

    thanks

  • Hello,

    Submit that feedback on the Connect-site or contact your Technical Account Manager from Microsoft to provide that feedback.

    Usually I never type the GUIDs, but instead parse the information from the get-noun to set-noun.

    See this as an example;

  • as it's not a Beta anymore - the Connect-site is out of scope.

    about the link you added - it's talking about adding package to the App-V server.

    what I was talking about is actions on the client side.

    for example - Deleting a specific package, load a specific package , etc...

  • Hello,

    The link was more a general example of how to utilize Powershell. The same parsing is applicable - regardless of where they are executed.

    I assume you can contact your Technical Account Manager from Microsoft them.

    As far as I'm aware, Microsoft will still watch items on Connect, it's just not a support channel (i.e. it's a good place for feature requests).

     

    I have other examples of using PowerShell with App-V 5 here: http://blog.stealthpuppy.com/tag/app-v/

    Alternatively, Microsoft has plenty of documentation on the PowerShell cmdlets in App-V 5 here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/jj713419.aspx
