Sequence one package for App-V W7 AND WK12R2/WK8R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    If you have Windows 7 and 2012R2: on which OS should you sequence (now we sequence on W7 X64)?
    We use the App-V package on Windows 7 and 2008/2012, that makes life a lot easier. Sequencing on both OS-es would complicate things but if needed, then we might need to reconsider our setup.

    What is your advise?

    J.

  • The best way or recommended is to capture in a machine that matches the target environment.

    But, sequencing on the lowest OS version will make the applications work on the highest OS most of the times. A thorough testing is required to make sure that everything is working as expected. As long as everything is working as expected you can use this else you may have to sequence in the OS that matches the target environment.

  • I would sequence on the lowest version of Windows, so in this case Windows 7.

    But this is also depending on the amount of machines in your environment. If there are more users working on Windows Server 2012 R2 than it would be better to sequence on 2012.

    But at the end it you need to test the working of your package on both platforms.

  • One thing to add on both great comment... just watch out for bitness. If your target also to 32bit machines, sequence on a 32bit.
