Book Review: Getting Started with Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.6 by Augusto Alvarez

For those of you just getting started with App-V 4.6, the following book, Getting Started with Microsoft Appilcation Virtualization 4.6 by Augusto Alvarez is a decent source for information.

Although the copy editors leave something to be desired (many misspellings etc.) here are the positives:

· The book did not take its own user’s manual to get through. It was easy to read, and follow.

· I have gone through the book and followed the instructions for setting up a basic environment and they work. Using this book as a guide you will be able to setup a working lab, and publish basic applications to App-V clients.

· There is a good example of how to complete a more complex publishing scenario - Office 2010, which will give you more insight into what can be involved in publishing more intricate apps.

· The book offers some setup “best practices” that are not intuitive so pay attention and follow the directions!

It’s also worth mentioning that the three tech editors are all Microsoft MVP’s for App-V, so it’s been vetted by the folks that really know their stuff.

Nice work Augusto!
