PowerShell with App-V 5

With the release of Application Virtualization version 5.0, Microsoft changed out all of the old scripting and programming interfaces and replaced them with PowerShell interface modules. In this book, the authors dig well below the limited online help that comes with the product to fully expose not only the PowerShell cmdlets but underlying object interfaces, with numerous examples.

Both IT Professionals looking to build some custom scripting, and Developers who want to build add-on products will find this complete reference guide a valuable resource for working with App-V. This book is not only more accurate than the release documentation, but is full of working examples on how to use the four PowerShell modules released with the product.

Windows System Performance Through Caching

The caching of code and data is a common technique used throughout the Windows Operating System in order to improve system and application performance. While System Performance is a difficult subject, this work represents a digestable look at performance by isolating the top fifteen or so ways that caching is used in the Windows 7 Operating System.

Not only are each of the caching techniques described and detailed, but experiments are provided that the reader may use to look further into the performance of their own systems. Numeroud free tools are used for these experiments, and the appendix provides an excellent guide to using these tools.

This book represents the culmination of years of research and a series of presentations made by the author in front of audiences around the world.

App-V Database Schema for 4.6/4.5 (a PDF E-Book)

We sometimes hand out this poster to people taking our Masters Level App-V Training Classes and it is quite a popular item. People often ask for extra copies, so we are making it available online.

This is a hi-res PDF, and it is suitable for printing to a 22x38.5 inch poster. The drawing organizes the schema of the database used by the full App-V infrstructure server in a logical way. We provide this so that you can write custom reports for application, user, and server usages, and more.

The schema drawing was created originally by us to help us develop some custom tools to manage the App-V Server. Although those tools (PimpMy) are no longer offered, we have been keeping the drawing up to date with product changes.



App-V Database Schema for 4.2/4.1 (a PDF E-Book)

This is an older version of the same poster, for those running 4.1 and 4.2.
