Eval App Volume Manager

I have setup a small lab to help me understand App Volume Manager and Horiz VDI's for my work.

This Eval environment is a complete VMWARE 6.7 with VC (same Ver) Qnap NAS for Storage Vols

I have a Win 10 that has the VMWare optimizer ran on it and it has been snapshotted

Win 2019 Ent with App Vol Mgr installed

The install was fairly painless,  My issue is that I can not create any packages which I am sure is due to the templates not

uploading correctly.

See below at the errors from the Activity log:

Ciao 

Which is the AppVolume version?

Only few versions of appvolume are support by vCenter 6.7

I don't think it's possible to download a trial other than the latest version of the product. Note that you also need to evaluate compatibility with Horizon, DEM and ESXi.
The first tests will be done in a LAB or on production (not recommended). I recommend upgrading the infrastructure to 7.x if you have a lab. Being 6.7 it is no longer in support
