How do i set things up so that the publishing/update on server will show up on client? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I don't want the client to have to go update the application if it is changed/updated at the server end? The SFTMIME etc commandline stuff running on the client seems to force client to initiate update.

    all i want to do is switch the app on the server end and have the client bring up the updated/changed app. that's it.

  • Are you using the App-V Management Server? Are you adding a new version of a package to and existing package? What SFTMIME command are you running?

    I don't quite follow what you're trying to achieve - could you please explain the scenario with an example and a bit more info on what you're doing at the server end.

    Use App-V Management Server or Streaming Server for this, or if you are using HTTP/FILE -based streaming then replace the original SFT file in the path referenced in OSD file's CODEBASE HREF attribute. You don't need to run any sftmime -commands unless you are somehow using standalone clients.

    This is really App-V 101, you should read App-V Trial Guide to see how App-V infrastructure is set up: http://download.microsoft.com/download/F/7/8/F784A197-73BE-48FF-83DA-4102C05A6D44/App-V/App-V%204.6%20SP1%20Trial%20Guide.docx
