The 1.x release for Winget (from Microsoft) has been published. A small command line tool, which can be used to install thousands of applications quickly. can be installed quickly. There are he many blog articles, how to install Winget for Windows 10 (in beta). Unfortunately however, no article on how to make it work on a Windows Server. Basically everything can be installed on Server 2019 after, what is available for Windows 10. We just need to "extract" the Appx and MSIX files for this. Files from the store "extract". With Winget, unfortunately, there was the limitation, that the command line is not yet supported in Server 2019 due to build 1809. is supported. For Server 2022 it's different and when in the last days we installed one of one of the first ISO images of Server 2022 the idea came up right away, Winget there to test and write a short tutorial if it works.
The Winget tool is included in the preview version or insider version of Windows App Installer. We need to install an insider version of App Installer to be able to use be able to use Winget.

Error Codes of App-V 5 Packages

App-V-Balls-Light-2021-B

The typical App-V error code consists of 2 x 4 bytes in the form hexadecimal: "0x000000-0x000000". The first six characters refer to the App-V source code and can be ignored.

Hidden App-V Registry Keys

App-V_2020_CD
Now since 2004 I have been implementing projects with Microsoft App-V (then Softgrid) and yet the product surprises me again and again with unknown elements. After the M.A.D.

At first we created a key "Disabled" and already a number of subkeys like "Integration", "Virtual Fonts", "Virtual Services" etc. appeared in ProcMon.

edge

Months have passed since our first blog on the topic (Recipe: Virtualize Edge with App-V). During this time the Edge has proven to be a very stable App-V application. If I read from time to time that a new critical vulnerability is emerging, the virtual Edge can react quickly. At this point I would like to point out that we regularly create the Edge and other browsers for our customers. This is done with known AppV bugfixes and with customer specific settings. If you are interested please contact me. For example on Twitter @Nickinformation

Starting MSIX and AppX Applications with PowerShell from the command line

MSIX_ZOOM

Microsoft Store applications (or Modern Applications) have now become standard on the desktop. Many users don't want to limit themselves any more and so the calculator on the terminal server should look exactly like the calculator on their own Windows 10 desktop. Sometimes you want to use your own "launcher" for an application. For example to start a script with the start of the application to import registry keys or connect network drives.For Microsoft Store applications (or Modern Applications) have now become standard on the desktop.
