App-V Sequencer missing from ADK 10 v1607

In the last weeks, I got the Question a few times, that the App-V Sequencer is missing from the Assessment and Deployment Toolkit (ADK) 10 v1607.

For those of you who don’t know, starting with the ADK 10 v1607, Microsoft integrated the Application Virtualization (App-V) Sequencer due to the fact, that App-V was natively embedded into Windows 10 v1607. The reason for this was Project Centennial.

Now, if you’re going to launch the ADK 10 v1607 on a Windows 10 v1607 Operating System, you will find the Installation Option for the App-V Sequencer in the ADK Setup Wizard, as you would expect it.

However, sometimes you actually get the following picture when installing the ADK 10 v1607, where the App-V Sequencer option is actually not there.

Now the key thing here, is actually Windows 10 v1607. During my tests, the Installation Option was only visible, and thus selectable, when the ADK Installer was ran, on a Windows 10 v1607. In all lower OS Versions, including Windows 10 v1511/v1507, Windows 8.1, Windows 7 and Server 2012 R2, the Option is actually not visible.

If you want to install the App-V Sequencer on those older Operating Systems, you actually need to go the traditional way, via the Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) 2015 Setup Media.

The App-V Sequencer Installer in the ADK 10 v1607 is actually the same one, that you’ll find in the MDOP 2015 Media. Both are on Version 5.1.
