  • Server App-V package (.osd)
  • Drivers (.inf)
  • Answer file (.inf, xml)
  • Custom resources (.cr folder)
  • Virtual floppy disk (.vfd, flp)

Enhancement #3: Resource Grouping

We often deploy multiple VMM library especially in branch environment. In current version (VMM 2008 R2), it is difficult for you to identify the resources to use. However in VMM 2012 RC, the product has fixed this issue by introducing Resource Grouping.

Both similar resources will group with a new name. Select the new name when use the resources. VMM will use the resources which is nearest for deployment.
