Event Details

TMurgent is continuing our world renowned MSIX training with remote learning.  Since the pandemic started, we have heard from some customers that they need the training but just still can’t, or don’t want to, travel.
This class is widely considered to be the ultimate place to learn about MSIX Packaging, and will be delivered remotely, allowing you to train from work or home without travel.

Book With Confidence / No Cancelation Policy: Whenever a single student is registered and confirmed for a class, we will not cancel the class. Period.
The Masters Level MSIX Packaging class will be run by TMurgent.  This 8-day class (4 hours/day) will provide you with both theory and practical hands-on experience in our training lab.  This class is both for those who are new to MSIX, and those with prior experience already.
The class will be held online at a time optimally convenient to Europeans and Americans.
Note: The class is an 8-day class for 4 hours each day.


The course is designed for people with a general background in IT and/or Packaging. We take students with or without prior experience in App-V.

There are no hard pre-requisites to be able to take the class, however, the following are helpful:

  • Knowledge and experience with general Microsoft Server Administration.
  • Knowledge and experience with SQL Server Administration.
  • Experience with other “packaging” techniques helpful.
  • Experience with App-V Administration and Sequencing.
Remote students (only) will be required to build your own VMs at your site prior to the start of the class:
  • Each student will require two Windows VMs.
  • Our pre-class prep kit will provide detailed written instructions, a video introduction to building the VMs, and installers for the tools needed.
  • Any type of hypervisor may be used, but the student must have access to create and revert to “snapshots”.
  • You will need additional storage on a share for the application installers and created packages.
  • It is highly recommended that students have two monitors, microphone, video camera, and earphones.
In-person students (when available) need to bring a laptop with wireless lan to tap into lab equipment provided.
