AppVolumes 4.x or 2.x?

Jump to solution

I quickly did a google search to try and ID when to use 4.0 and when to use 2.x, can't find anything.

I've successfully created an appstack in 4.0, but it's not putting the shortcut on the desktop, any ideas?

Hi trevordavismsft

App Volumes 2.x and 4.x are two different editions of appvolumes. Though you can use any of them in your environment, 4.x includes enhancements to both application management and user experience, you will find it easy to manage application lifecycle using 4.x. AppVolumes 4.x is recently released with all new features which just simplifies the way application lifecycle is managed.

For shortcut, did you place it on desktop during the capture process?

OK, so that makes sense, didn't realize I needed to create a desktop shortcut.  If I recall correctly in earlier version of AppV the shortcut was automatically placed on the desktop.

First don't call it appv, appv is an Microsoft product that is similar.

secondly, 2.x or 4.x it doesn't matter, they all just capture the changes made by the installation. :If the installation program doesn't create a desktop icon you need to do this your self during the capture process, or by using another tool. App Volumes doesn't make any icons or anything like that
