Default Configuration files RRS feed

  • Question

  • If you sequence an app-v 5.0 package it output's an .appv and _DeploymentConfig.xml and _UserConfig.xml (and .msi wrapper).

    By default the .appv contains the same information as in the _DeploymentConfig.xml and _UserConfig.xml (?)

    Therefore one can assume that when using Add-AppvClientPackage of Publish-AppvClientpackage you do not have to specify -DynamicDeploymentConfiguration or -DynamicUserConfigurationPath when those .xml files are not changed?

  • Correct, the XML files provide a more convenient method for package customization by removing the need to re-sequence packages using the desired settings, and provides a way to keep package content and custom settings independent.

    If you want to adjust the defaults you can edit the files, then the parameter -DynamicDeploymentConfiguration is necessary or you have to import the XML file in the App-v Management Console.
