How to Configure the Application Virtualization Management Servers

Before virtualized applications can be streamed to the Application Virtualization Desktop Client or the Client for Remote Desktop Services (formerly Terminal Services), the Application Virtualization Management Server must be configured. When you configure the server, you are setting up the content directory where the SFT files are loaded and stored. The SFT files contain the virtualized application (or applications).

Important   Application Virtualization Servers stream SFT files to the Desktop Client and the Client for Remote Desktop Services using only RTSP or RTSPS protocols. The ICO (icon) file and the OSD (open software descriptor) file can be configured to stream from a different file or HTTP server.
