New Tool – Coretech APP-V Package Analyzer and Converter

APP-V 5 has been around more than one year now and if you have a lot of old APP-V 4.5 or 4.6 packages then you may want to move to newer version to get all the nice features that APP-V 5 provides.

APP-V 5 Sequencer PowerShell Module contains Test-APPvLegacyPackage and ConvertFrom-AppvLegacyPackage CMDLETs. Test-AppvLegacyPackage CMDLET allows us to analyze old packages and if the analyzer says no problem, then we can convert the old apps to never version with ConvertFrom-AppvLegacyPackage CMDLET.

I got 61 old APP-V packages last week and I wanted an easy way to analyze these packages and also a feature that allows to export the results to excel and a better control of what packages I convert or not and because of that I made one simple utility in PowerShell.

This tool allows to read/analyze/convert all the APP-V packages in specific location and you can export out also package analyze information

    Why the Win8 requirement?

    • Kaido Järvemets Kaido Järvemets says:

      Hi,

      Windows 8 because I didnt test it with other Windows versions. It should work also with Windows 7 with PowerShell 3.0

  3. Rory says:

    Would it be possible to add another input field so we could specify the output directory?

    The utility works fine on Windows 7.
