This article describes Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.5 Cumulative Update 1 (App-V 4.5 CU1). This package provides the latest updates to Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.5.
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.

When you open a 16-bit application, you cannot access files in the virtual file system. This causes a start failure.
