How can I speed up the launch of an app virtualized using App-V 5.1?

I have a setup where App-V 5.1 server (Publishing and Management) and DB are installed on a machine. After creating and publishing a package (of size ~ 5 GB) when I try to access/launch this desktop application, it takes almost an hour to just launch. I thought it would be initial sync that is taking significant time but every time I launch this virtualized app it takes the same amount of time. It is not just the initial launch but launching any of the internal commands (different UI dialogs) from this app takes a lot of time to launch them.

I have tried shutting down the App-V Server to see if it would help in the speeding in the launch process but it doesn't.

I haven't done any configuration changes on the Client. Just used the following commands on the Client's Powershell.

  • Enable-Appv

  • Add-AppvPublishingServer -Name name_of_AppV_Publishing_Server -URL http://name_of_appv_server:889

  • Set-AppVPublishingServer –ServerID 1 –GlobalRefreshEnabled 1 –GlobalRefreshOnLogon 1

  • Get-AppvPublishingServer | Sync-AppvPublishing Server

Could someone help me with any information on how to speed up the virtualized app launch.

Thanks,
Pramod

Hello @VALIPIREDDYPramod-6600,

Implementing multiple methods can help you improve the end-user experience. However, your environment may not support all methods.

In order to configure App-V 5.1 for optimal performance, optimize virtual app packages, and provide a better user experience with RDS and VDI.

Do follow the below link in order to speed up the launch of an app virtualized using App-V 5.1,

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-desktop-optimization-pack/appv-v5/performance-guidance-for-application-virtualization-51

Hope this answers all your queries, if not please do repost back.

Hello @LimitlessTechnology-2700,

I did go through and tried the information in the link you provided but unfortunately it didn't help.

Previously I was using App-V 5.0 SP1 and sequencing in Win 8.1 OS and accessing the package through a App-V Client Console (UI) on a client machine wasn't having any issues and the virtualized app was launching quickly. But now I am using App-V 5.1 and used Sequencer tool (embedded in Assessment and Deployment Kit) for creating a package. Using Win 10 20H2 as a Client machine and using Powershell commands for enabling App-V and accessing the package is what showing me the slowness in the launch of the virtualized app. The following screenshot shows the configuration settings on the Client. Are there any changes that need to be done in the configuration on the Client machine to speed up the app launch?
