App-V 5.0 SP2 Hotfix Package 5

Microsoft recently released Hotfix Package 5 for App-V 5.0 SP2. The first two below are items that I’ve wanted for a while:

1 – Enabling user-publishing in the Administrator context through Windows PowerShell

This hotfix release enables user-publishing to be done in the Administrator context through the following four Windows PowerShell cmdlets:


To do this, use the optional -UserSID parameter, and pass in the SID of the intended user.

2 – Connection groups cannot support both user-published and global-published packages

With this hotfix release, App-V 5.0 SP2 supports creating user-entitled connection groups that contain user-published and global-published packages by using Windows PowerShell.

3 – Deprecation of PackageStoreAccessControl support in App-V 5.0 SP2

Effective immediately, the PackageStoreAccessControl (PSAC) setting that was introduced in App-V 5.0 SP2 is being deprecated in both single-user and multiuser environments.
