Login Consultants launches App-V 4.5 Client Diagnostic and Configuration tool

Today Login Consultants released a new freeware tool to support Microsoft Application Virtualization called App-V 4.5 Client Diagnostic and Configuration tool.

ACDC makes it possible for administrators or users to troubleshoot virtual applications and the environment they run in:

  • Launch predefined and custom commands within the virtual environment of each application.
  • See the impact of the App-V Client and the available virtual applications on your system by calculating package size, cache size, user delta file size, log file size etc.
  • Diagnose problems with App-V applications by parsing the App-V Client log file (in real time) and search any message online.
  • Configure settings that are not visible in the App-V Client GUI, such as “Predictive Streaming”, “Allow Stream from File”, “Max Package Age” and many more.
  • Give an overview of application and package information by merging important WMI, registry and OSD information in one single window.
  • ACDC can be run both as an Administrator and as a Limited User. Running as a limited user will limit the functionality of the tool due to the fact that it has less permission on the system.

Requirements

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0
  • Microsoft Application Virtualization Client 4.5 or
  • Microsoft Application Virtualization Terminal Services Client 4.5

Supported Operating Systems

  • Windows XP Pro w/SP2, Windows XP w/SP3
  • Windows Vista RTM/SP1
  • Windows Server 2003 (SP1, SP2, R2, SP2+R2)
  • Windows Server 2008

Questions or suggestions can be provided through the website http://www.loginconsultants.com/forum under “SoftGrid Tooling”

ACDC can be downloaded here (registration required).

The next couple of days I will talk in depth about the functionality of ACDC and how it can be used in the day-to-day business. Below are several screenshots from the actual tool:
