If you publish Microsoft App-V packages in your Citrix XenApp environment, then you know how tedious it can be to manually publish applications for all the virtual application packages. Once you have deployed App-V virtual applications to your XenApp Farms, you will want to publish the shortcuts to users. This can be a slow and tedious process for App-V virtual applications when using the XenApp Management Console, requiring you to reference sfttray, the OSD name, and then locate the correct icon file.
Fortunately, Tim Mangan has created some tools to help with this process. The tools Tim created are designed to help make this publishing task a little easier to perform. These tools work with any style of App-V distribution, including the full App-V Management Server, SCCM, and “Stand Alone Client” (especially when using my App-V Deploy and Publish Tools).
