You can use an App-V project template to apply common settings associated with an existing virtual application package to a new virtual application package. Using App-V project templates can help streamline the process of creating virtual application packages by configuring common settings before you begin sequencing an application.

You can only apply an App-V project template when you are creating a new virtual application package. Applying project templates to existing virtual application packages is not supported. Additionally, you cannot use a project template in conjunction with a Package Accelerator.

For more information about creating App-V project templates, see How to Create an App-V Project Template.
