Hi , we have lots of Appv 5.1 packages hosted via XenApp on windows 2012 server . However , we want to move to later win 2k server and wanted to adopt MSIX . Do we need to install any s/w to support MSIX on windows server 2016 and forward ?

 

What are other considerations and if any documentation around it ?

@Amit Kumar MSIX Core (in preview, GA later this year) will enable MSIX packages to be installed on downlevel devices.  They will install more like an MSI and have a subset of the functionality as the 1709 and later Windows client.  It will allow you to standardize on a single package.

 

For Server 2019, we are looking into the support statement.
