Windows 7: Office 2010 and AppV 4.6

22 Feb 2010   #1

Office 2010 and AppV 4.6

Today, over on the MDOP BLOG, we announced the release of the next version of Microsoft Application Virtualization (4.6) as part of MDOP 2010 (Microsoft Deployment Optimization Pack).  From Takeshi Numoto, Corporate VP in Office:
App-V 4.6 provides Office customers with a robust set of features to tackle core challenges including application upgrade, application coexistence, and user readiness. Its an exciting, powerful new way for IT to deliver Office 2010 quickly without impacting user productivity.

We are particularly excited about the announcement because a huge portion of the work that was done to make this great release is going to go a long way towards simplifying the deployment and management of Office 2010. If you are new to application virtualization you can get background and quick how to guidance here.

The release fixes a lot of the key issues customers ran into when sequencing such as:

  • MAPI proxies and Outlook,
  • Integration with desktop search,
  • A number of SharePoint integration issues.  
In the next few weeks we will have a more detailed post on how to sequence 2010, benefits of AppV and more but in the meantime check out this detailed post on Office 2010 and AppV 4.6 from some of our awesome virtualization MVPs.  For those of you that have already tried sequencing the beta (or older versions) we would love to get your feedback and thoughts.
