Last week the North America edition of TechED was held in Houston and I was one of the lucky guys that presented on stage.

When publishing App-V 5.x applications it is interesting to know how long it takes to publish all applications. I needed this information during a large scale test to get a better understanding of the impact on the user experience.

In this blog post I will share a powershell function that can get the App-V publishing time on a remote specific machine.
Login VSI supports application virtualization, but how do you integrate App-V within a workload? Depending which applications are virtualized it is possible to run the medium workload without any modifications. When every application is virtualized some modifications are required. Because Login VSI v4 has a simple workload language, App-V can be easily integrated. In this blog post I will explain the App-V 4.x & 5.x integration with Login VSI.
Please note: Workload customization/modification requires a Login VSI PRO license. More information can be found here.
On my corporate laptop I use a virtual Mozilla Firefox sequenced with Microsoft App-V. I created the package with all the plugins and settings that I prefer. One day I discovered strange behavior when I applied a desktop background from the virtual package.

Normally the installer starts the service and continues the installation but this time the following error message occurred.
