On the Permissions tab on the Properties dialog box, accessible by right-clicking the Application Virtualization node in the Application Virtualization Client Management Console, administrators can grant users permissions to use the various client functions.

Before changing users permissions, ensure that any permissions changes are consistent with the organization's guidelines for granting user permissions.

The following table lists and describes the permissions that can be granted to users.
