Microsoft App-V 5.0 – Streaming via HTTP

Written by Ingmar Verheij on October 25th, 2013. Posted in Microsoft App-V

Microsoft App-V 5.0With Microsoft App-V 5.0 virtual application packages (or sequences) can be streamed to the client with two delivery methods: SMB or HTTP. With SMB being the easiest one (all you need is a file share), the HTTP delivery mechanism is IMO more scalable.

The ability to stream via HTTP is natively built-in in the App-V client, no configuration is required. All that is needed to publish the application via HTTP is to specify the URL instead of the UNC location at the Management Server. Unfortunately Microsoft doesn’t provide us with a description on how to built a Microsoft IIS Web Server to enable it to stream App-V packages.
