By creating an application, you can manage the lifecycle of the packages added to the application.
- From App Volumes Manager, go to and click Create.
- Provide the following information and click Create:
Option Description Name Name of the application. Description Include the name of the packages or programs the application contains. RDS package attachment
If an application supports multiple versions running at the same time, then use this option to deliver all versions of the application as per package assignment to users in a multi-session environment.
If one of the users has a
CURRENTassignment and another user has a specific application version assigned, then when the option is selected and both users log into the same RDSH server at the same time, the respective application version is delivered to each user.
For example: The 7-Zip application supports versions
Yof the application running at the same time. Version
Xis set with the
CURRENTversion of the application is assigned to user1, which is version
Xand a specific version of the application is assigned to user2, which is version
Y. When the RDS package attachment option is selected and both users log into the same RDSH server at the same time, user1 is delivered version
Xand user2 is delivered version
When the option is deactivated and one of the application package versions is previously attached, then regardless of the package assignment, the already attached package version is delivered to all users in the multi-session environment.Note: This option is available only for VMDK attachments.
For information about support for multi-session, see App Volumes Support in a Multi-Session Environment.
