Application Virtualization (App-V) for Windows client overview

Applies to:

  • Windows 10
  • Windows 11


Application Virtualization will be end of life in April 2026. We recommend looking at Azure Virtual Desktop with MSIX app attach. For more information, see What is Azure Virtual Desktop? and Set up MSIX app attach with the Azure portal.

The articles in this section provide information and instructions to help you administer App-V and its components. This information is for system administrators who manage large installations with many servers and clients, and for support personnel who interact directly with the computers or users.
