After integrating the App-V Desktop Client into the Windows Image file, it is important that it be able to receive virtual applications. Ways to achieve this include:
· The App-V Desktop Client was configured to stream applications from an App-V Management Server or Streaming Server during installation.
· Install the application from an MSI file that the App-V Sequencer generated. Use this option to install applications in the image, deploy them with an ESD system, and so on.
· Install applications using Sftmime, a command-line tool used to manage the App-V Desktop Client. With Sftmime, you can load and unload different virtualized applications. For more information about Sftmime, see the App-V documentation.
