PolicyPak Software loves App-V administrators! We believe in App-V!
One of PolicyPak’s core superpowers is to deliver applications’ settings and lock down user-interface settings – for both installed and App-V virtualized applications. You can see this in action, by our “PolicyPak Improves Microsoft App-V” Integration by clicking here.
But there’s ALSO the actual App-V client which lives on your client systems. How are you configuring THAT? Answer: you likely aren’t.
Here’s why you might want to use our preconfigured PolicyPak for App-V to configure your systems which have the App-V client (which was created by Jeremy Moskowitz, former Group Policy MVP and Ment Van Der Plas, App-V MVP.)
- The App-V client management console allows your users to clear, reset or delete their applications. However giving access to the console also gives access to the settings of the App-V client itself which might not be preferred. PolicyPak helps with this because only PolicyPak can lock out the UI of the places users shouldn’t go.
- A client might need additional permissions. Simply move the client to the OU with permissions to receive the new permissions. Move back when that client no longer needs those permissions.
- Hide specific tabs from prying eyes, so they can’t see what you’ve set.
Here’s is how the preconfigured PolicyPak App-V pak stacks up with the other technologies out there which perform similar functions:
