App-V 5.0 Standalone – How to Activate Deployment Scripts

Posted on Updated on

This is the walk-through in preparation for demonstrations from my Microsoft Master webcast on App-V 5.0 scripting.  For the full webcast information, visit

This demo will show how to “activate” a deployment script (which may contain either user or global/PC scripts) that you may have added to the DeploymentConfig.xml of an App-V package.

  1. In your the App-V web console, locate the package and click Editappv-dep-scripts01
  2. For the deployed user or computer group, click Edit Default Config
    Note: do not select the drop-down option for “Custom” as this is only for activating UserScriptsappv-dep-scripts02
  3. On the Default Configuration pane, select Advanced from the left-side menu, the click Import and Overwrite this Configurationappv-dep-scripts03
  4. Locate and open the DeploymentConfig.xml
    Important: due some irregularities with Silverlight, after opening the XML, the console may revert back to the main package administration pane.  You’ll need to navigate back to the Advanced configuration (e.g. repeat steps 1-3 above).appv-dep-scripts04
  5. In the window, select to Overwrite the configurationappv-userscripts05
