I have gone through building and setting up an App-V 5 environment.  The next challenge would be porting all your App-V 4.6 (or 4.5) applications over to the new estate.  Below are the steps you would follow to convert the applications using powershell.

You need to be on the Sequencing VM.

Some pre requisites:

  • You will need to use Power Shell x32 to make this happen .
  • Windows 7 x32  SP1 with Power Shell 3.0 and .NetFramework 4.
  • On this machine you will need the sequencer application installed to get all Cmdlets of App-V.
  • I recommend use Power Shell ISE and save the script for future conversions.
