Pros
  • + Has an excellent file, registry, directory and URL redirection feature, making it perfect for those migrating from e.g. Citrix XenApp streaming who relied on similair functionality.
  • + Unique feature set and packaging tool makes it great for those incompatible legacy apps.
  • + You can isolate the network stack
  • + No requirement for agent install on client machines. Transparent flat file package format.
  • + In box in Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 Enterprise. PowerShell driven so lends itself very well to automation. The pros of App-V 4.6 also applies here.
  • + Relatively high rate of app compatibility. Flexibile solution with a tool for manually adding apps to servers with the SWV tool or stream with SWS.
Cons
  • - While a lot is possible with the product, some things require some manual steps. Limited scripting framework. Packaging discipline can become complex for richer integration such as shell extentions. Citrix and SCCM integration isn't streamlined. Lacks a large online community.
  • - There's a learning curve even for those with experience in App-V 4.6 due to many changes to the underlying technology. Isolation options are rigid which makes application compatibility an issue when compared to other products.
  • - Development of the product was a bit slow compared to those from smaller vendors. EOL.
