Tutorial : Automate App-V client install and configuration

Requirements based on infrastructure
The server/network infrastructure has to be in place such as Active Directory, App-V Managment Service.  I´m using Remote Desktop Services but is not required if you are using MDOP and APP-V for regular clients.

Pre-required software before installing.

Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)[/url
APP-V Server/Client ISO(Only for remote desktop services)
Microsoft Error Reporting, is located in the ISO, app-v client folder Support\Watson. Same as above.
App-V Polcies (Login Consultans, you need to register to download)
The client install will also work with MDOP App-V client, even if the Video tutorial shows App-V client for Remote Desktop Services.

The todo list
* What software do you need to download
* How to extract and configure the software
* How to create and configure the policies
* Test the configuration.

My setup
DC1 = Is a domain server that contains fileshare named DistributedApps, the share is setup default but with $ hidden character.  Policies are created on this server.
SRV1 = Is the App-V Managment Services server and contains all the virtual applications, but is default as it is now.
TS1 = Is the Remote Desktop Services Server and is the server that will get the App-V client installed automatically.
There is no speach or sounds in the video but has text captions that explains what is happening in the video.

The video is best viewed in HD and full screen.
