  • Hi,

    not sure if there would be any. In App-V 4, it was recommended to exclude .sft files, the Q-Drive, the local cache file (sftfs.fsd) , perhaps the .pkg files and a few other items, but mainly because these filese were not accessible or 'propperly' readable by AV solutions.

    As in App-V 5 all the client-side resources are 'normal' files (.exe, .dll and so on) and because userser potentially could create their own, personal copy of such files I would not exclude anything from beeing inspected by AV.
