Install the App-V Sequencer
- Windows 10
- Windows 11
Use the App-V Sequencer to convert Win32 applications into virtual packages for deployment to user devices. Those devices must be running the App-V client to allow users to interact with virtual applications.
The App-V Sequencer is included in the Windows client Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK).
The computer that will run the sequencer must not have the App-V client enabled. As a best practice, choose a computer with the same hardware and software configurations as the computers that will run the virtual applications. The sequencing process is resource-intensive, so make sure the computer that will run the Sequencer has plenty of memory, a fast processor, and a fast hard drive.
How to install the App-V Sequencer
Go to Download the Windows ADK.
Select the Get Windows ADK for Windows 10 button on the page to start the ADK installer. Make sure that Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) Sequencer is selected during the installation.
To open the Sequencer, go to the Start menu and select Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) Sequencer.
See Creating and managing virtual applications and the Application Virtualization Sequencing Guide for information about creating virtual applications with the Sequencer.
