SP2 for App-V 4.6 to be deployed via MS Update at End of November | November 6, 2012


WindowsUpdate_100According to http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sgern/archive/2012/10/12/10359028.aspx (a very trustworthy source), Service Pack 2 for Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.6 will be deployed via Microsoft Update “at the end of this month” (which is November). A thing to consider…

As for with every new Minor Release, Hotfix or Service Pack for App-V, IT Organizations should be aware that this update modifies the ‘execution platform’ or ‘runtime environment’ for a potentially large amount of applications. In return, you should test and validate your business-critical App-V applications before you apply this update (or allow Microsoft Update / WSUS to deploy it).

While (as far as I remember) there was only one SP for an older version of SoftGrid/App-V that caused some applications to fail, Hotfixes which were published for App-V 4.6 SP1 apparently were ‘nice’ to the applications.

The KB article for App-V 4.6 SP2 can be found at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2738315

Note that SP2 contains all the Fixes up and until HF8 for App-V 4.6 SP1 with the exception of HF7 fixes.
