More information
This cumulative update contains the following changes:
  • Support for Windows 7 Beta and Windows Server 2008 R2 Beta
    App-V 4.5 CU1 addresses compatibility issues with Windows 7 Beta and Windows Server 2008 R2 Beta. Support will be provided for blocking issues that prevent App-V 4.5 CU1 from running in a test environment on pre-RTM versions of Windows 7. This change helps make sure that your virtual applications can run successfully in a test environment in which compatibility between App-V 4.5 Client and Windows 7 Beta is required.

    Note Running App-V 4.5 CU1 on any version of Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 in a live operating environment is not supported.
  • Improved support for sequencing the Microsoft .NET Framework
    App-V 4.5 CU1 addresses previous issues with sequencing the .NET Framework 3.5 and earlier versions on Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) and later versions.
