The AppVProvider project is an open-source implementation of a Micrsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) 5.x
provider for Microsoft's
OneGet Package Management Powershell module. More information on the open-source
OneGet project can be found here.
The App-V Provider can install and uninstall Microsoft App-V v5.x packages from local and/or remote directory paths with a behaviour that is is consistent with all other OneGet/Microsoft Package Management providers.
To use the OneGet/Package Management App-V Provider you will need the following installed:
- The Windows Management Framework (WMF) 5.0 preview or the latest experimental OneGet build.
- Microsoft's Application Virtualization (App-V) 5.x client.
Once you have the prerequisites installed, you can install the OneGet App-V Provider via the Powershell Gallery by running the following Powershell command:
You can also manually download and install the OneGet App-V Provider by performing the following:
- Download the latest Appv Provider release.
- Unblock the zip file before extracting!
- PowerShell by default does not run files downloaded from the internet.
- Right-click the zip file and click on "Properties" and click on the "Unblock" button.
- Extract the zip file to the %ProgramFiles%\WindowsPowershell\Modules directory.
More detailed information on the usage of the App-V Provider can be found here until it's moved to the Wiki.
