  • Hello,

    Tips is to run through a custom installation to see what options are available.
    Documentation on howto reference the options is available here;
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc843737.aspx

    You can force the by creating an MST-file either by ORCA or InstED (which is needed by the GPO)

    Good luck!

  • Hello,

    As I unclearly (to little coffee I suppose) you have to specify those via an MST-file.

    InstEd for editing MSI / MST is available here;

  • Another option might be to deploy the App-V client without any customization and to use MS' and Loginconsultant's ADM templates to configure it completely.

    Remeber that for the MSI based deployment you'd have to deploy the prerequisits (Visual C++ 2005 SP1, MS Error Reporting and perhaps MS XML Parser) in advance

  • Hello there in this post show you how to configure via GPO, its very easy deploy the client via GPO, you shoul need the two .MSI for the deployment. 

    Blog Post

    Deploy App-V 5.0 Client Configuration VIA GPO on Windows Server 2012

    Create a GPO named App-V Client and then assign the package to that OU you want to deploy the client.
