Installing the App-V 5.1 Client

App-V comes with the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack. You get this if you are a Software Assurance customer.

Deploying the client is fairly straightforward. From Windows 10, you need two prerequisites – Visual C++ Redistributable 2005 32-bit MFC Update (found here: https://microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26347) and the Visual C++ Redistributable 2013 that matches your system architecture (found here: https://microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40784). The 2005 redistributable is very specific to that version – the 2013 it doesn’t matter.

(Prerequisites for additional operating systems found here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/itpro/mdop/appv-v5/app-v-51-prerequisites?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396#app-v-client-prerequisite-software).

After you have your prerequisites installed, installing the App-V client is easy. I like to install the MSI version, so to extract that, run this command against the EXE installer:

appv_client_setup.exe /layout /layoutdir=”<extraction directory>”

Now that you have the MSI, install it with this command:

msiexec /i appv_client_MSI_x64.msi /qb ACCEPTEULA=1
