App Volumes agent runs batch scripts either when an application package or a Writable Volume is enabled. Applications are enabled during user login or computer startup. In App Volumes 4, scripts are application-centric.

If certain actions must be performed at appropriate stages of application enablement, administrators can add batch scripts.
