App-V Client Configuration

App-V 4

Scense makes use of the App-V client, but unlike normal App-V operations, Scense will directly interface with the client and tell it what to do on workstation level.
To allow this to work seamlessly the App-V (4.5) client needs some configuration.

Streaming from file

To allow streaming directly from a file the following registry key should be set.

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Softgrid\4.5\Client\Configuration\AllowIndependentFileStream
(REG_DWORD): Value = 1

Add Application

To allow adding applications at App-V client level the following registry key should be set.

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Softgrid\4.5\Client\Permissions\AddApp
(REG_DWORD): Value = 1

Import Application

To allow importing applications at App-V client level the following registry key should be set.

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Softgrid\4.5\Client\Permissions\ImportApp
(REG_DWORD): Value = 1

Update OSD File

To allow overwriting cached OSD Files the following registry key should be set.

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Softgrid\4.5\Client\Permissions\UpdateOSDFile
(REG_DWORD): Value = 1

The above settings may also configured using the Scense configuration settings for App-V.

App-V 5

Just like with App-V 4.x, Scense will directly interface with the client and tell it what to do on workstation level.
After proper installation, the App-V 5 client does not need any additional configuration.
