TOOL: FxR from App-V

Posted by Duncan Murdoch on Mar 18, 2016 2:45:22 PM

Introduction:

If you have read the previous articles on creating a minimal infrastructure App-V environment (Here) then you will have seen that you can use FsLogix Apps to manage the availability of globally published App-V applications. The only slightly sticky point is creating the FsLogix .fxr rules for each App-V package. Whilst the steps aren't overly time consuming (see here for an overview) they do require a manual set of steps to create a rule for each application. If you have 50 App-V applications this might take the better part of a day importing the app into the cache, creating a new rule, browsing for the App-V Package Root Path etc. If the app needs to be run through the sequencer again then the PackageID and VersionID are going to change meaning recreating the .fxr. The goal of this tools is to reduce the time, effort and increase the accuracy when creating rules for FsLogix. (At least until the FsLogix guys implement a CLI/API to play with ;-) ;-) ).
