Recently Simon Dettling wrote an article about this hotfix & you can find it HERE. At that moment this was available on demand[May have to request Microsoft to get that]. Now it is available for public download.
Microsoft recently released “April 2016 hotfix rollup for Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack” which includes HF02 for UEV 2.1 & HF03 for AppV 5.1. This HF03 for AppV 5.1 fixes issues such as App-V crashes on (RDS) when dynamic configuration causes a policy update, Custom configurations for existing entitlements are overwritten, added ETW log to detect when file has incorrect “FILE_EXECUTE” permissions & App-V template for UE-V is missing registry keys.
You can find it HERE.
Make sure to restart the machine once you apply hotfix.
I’ve tried to Install AppV 5.1 Client & Sequencer on the VM that I’ve created using Build 14316. I’ve got the window below when I executed AppV Client Setup.
As a test I gave a try with the older version of AppV 5[5.0 sp2] & the behaviour is same. There seems to be a logic to restrict Installation of AppV 5 Client. I’ve mentioned this in specific to AppV 5 because I was able to Install AppV 4.6 Client Successfully.
