Quick note on Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.5 OS and SQL Server requirements

HOWWe still get a lot of questions regarding what operating system and SQL Server versions are supported with the App-V 4.5 so I thought I’d take a minute and clarify that here.

For App-V components such as management servers, streaming servers, the data store, the web service and the console, the latest OS that’s supported is Windows Server 2008 R2. Note that this assumes you’re on App-V 4.5 Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2 (SP1 or SP2).

For the database, the following versions of SQL Server are supported:

  • SQL Server 2000 SP3a or SP4
  • SQL Server 2005 SP1, SP2, or SP3
  • SQL Server 2008 with no service pack or SP1
  • SQL Server 2008 R2 (32-bit or 64-bit)

This information was current when this article was published but you can find more details and the latest information regarding the minimum hardware and software requirements here.
