Primary Virtual Application Directory – App-V 5

During the setup of an App-V 5 package, you are required to fill in the Primary Virtual Application Directory as specified:

Primary Virtual Application Directory

You should use the Primary Virtual Application Directory location specified on this page as the installation directory when installing the application to be sequenced.

What does this mean? It wants you to enter the directory that you will install the application to. The intention of this is to optimize the App-V package, but in reality it doesn’t make any difference because the sequencer will gather all the information about the install location automatically from the OS hooks as part of the sequencing process.

For best practice, I’d be inclined to enter the correct value into the Primary Virtual Application Directory just in case.
