Install the App-V Sequencer
Applies to: Windows 10, version 1607
Use the App-V Sequencer to convert Win32 applications into virtual packages for deployment to user devices. Those devices must be running the App-V client to allow users to interact with virtual applications.
The App-V Sequencer is included in the Windows 10 Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK).
The computer that will run the sequencer must not have the App-V client enabled. As a best practice, choose a computer with the same hardware and software configurations as the computers that will run the virtual applications. The sequencing process is resource-intensive, so make sure the computer that will run the Sequencer has plenty of memory, a fast processor, and a fast hard drive.
How to install the App-V Sequencer
- Go to Download the Windows ADK.
Select the Get Windows ADK for Windows 10 button on the page to start the ADK installer. Make sure that Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) Sequencer is selected during the installation.
- To open the Sequencer, go to the Start menu and select Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) Sequencer.
