I just came home from the NAV 2009 R2 Launch in Belgium (in fact, I did my own small presentation there). As I expected, a lot of focus on the cloud and the App-V support for NAV now .. and that reminded me of the fact that I wanted to share one little thing .. . There is a whitepaper available on how to set up the RoleTailored client and Classic client in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 to run as virtual applications in App-V.
What is App-V??
To use Microsoft's words.. : Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) is an application virtualization and streaming solution. With App-V, you can make applications available without installing the applications directly on end-user computers.
So, in other words:
But to set it uw, you need quite some knowledge in this area, so the whitepaper is really a helpful thing in getting you started!
You can download it here (on partnersource).
OK, is there a half-decent way to rollout the new release to >50 clients, where the Nav 2009 SP1 is already installed ?
I just tried msiexec to uninstall the "old" Nav2009 SP1 but an error message pops up, that i have to use the setup.exe for uninstall. :(
I'm not in the mood of uninstall an install the Nav clients on all machines manually.
