I’ve been playing around with App-V 5.0 Beta 2 for the last few days. Powershell is in the picture now, and therefore a lot of configurations are done via Powershell. Same goes with remove the packages from the client machine, it has to be done via Powershell. Below is the step by step guide,

  2. Hi Hau,
    Have you sequenced Adobe Reader X on App-V 5 Beta2? I'm having trouble hiding "Check for Updates" tab.

    Thanks,
