  • Using the manifest XML file allows SCCM to have some knowledge about the applications in the App-V package and know that they are virtual applications. Id you use the MSI file, then SCCM will treat the App-V package just like any other application.

    Use the XML file approach for any App-V integration with SCCM. See from page 15 in this white paper for more info: http://download.microsoft.com/download/f/7/8/f784a197-73be-48ff-83da-4102c05a6d44/APP-V/App-V_and_ConfigMgr_Whitepaper_Final.docx
