Description

The New-AppvSequencerPackage cmdlet creates a new Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) package, either using an installer, an App-V accelerator, or an accelerator with an installed application. The cmdlet accepts a template file, as well as the option to force the package to be fully streamed to the computer before running the package.

Examples

Example 1: Create a package

PS C:\> New-AppvSequencerPackage -Name "MyPackage" -OutputPath "C:\MyPackage" -PrimaryVirtualApplicationDirectory "C:\Program Files\MyApp" -Installer "C:\installers\MyApp\setup.exe"

This command creates a package for the application MyApp.

Example 2: Create a package that must be fully downloaded

PS C:\> New-AppvSequencerPackage -Name MyPackage2 -OutputPath C:\MyPackages -PrimaryVirtualApplicationDirectory "C:\Program Files\MyApp -Installer C:\installers\MyApp\setup.exe -FullLoad

This command creates a package that must be fully downloaded for the application MyApp.

Example 3: Create a package using a pre-generated accelerator

PS C:\> New-AppvSequencerPackage -Name "MyPackage" -OutputPath "C:\MyPackages" -AcceleratorFilePath "C:\MyAccelerators\MyAccelerator.cab" -PrimaryVirtualApplicationDirectory "C:\MyApp\" -InstalledMediaPath "C:\Installers\PreReq\" -Installer "C:\Installers\MyApp\setup.exe"

This command creates a new package MyApp using a pre-generated package accelerator.

Example 4: Create a package using a template file

PS C:\> New-AppvSequencerPackage -Name "MyPackage" -TemplateFilePath "C:\template.appvt" -OutputPath "C:\Packages\MyPackage" -PrimaryVirtualApplicationDirectory "C:\Program Files\MyApp" -Installer "C:\Installers\MyApp\setup.exe"

This command creates a new MyApp package using a template file.
