AppV 5 Package convertor

Because I cannot remember the AppV Sequencer PowerShell commands to convert a Softgrid (App-V 4.6 .sft) package to a App-V 5.x package (.appv). I dedicated to write it down at last, freed some memory for playing Commander Keen without using QEMM or whatever some cool memory management tool.

First import the cmdlet;

Import-Module AppVPkgConverter

Do the converthingy:

ConvertFrom-AppvLegacyPackage -SourcePath “C:\temp\v4_pkg” -DestinationPath “C:\temp\new_v5_pkg”

Btw Better use the 5.1 Sequencer or newer, because the AppVPkgConverter was updated in the 5.1 release. Also don’t try to convert older Softgrid 4.1/4.2/4.5 packages. First convert them to the 4.6 format using the App-V 4.6 Sequencer.
