When I´m doing standard .msi re-packaging I know it is a must to use a
packaging client w/o Anti-virus installed.

But when I´m creating virtualized packages then it shouldn´t be any problems if
there´s an Anti-virus running on my packaging client, right?

I´m new at this, I should mention as well.

You need to get hold of the 'Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.6 Sequencing Guide' from the MS App-V site.

If you have questions about Anti-Virus software, then there are a number of other things that you probably haven't considered in your sequencer setup and this is all covered in this document.

Thank you, but I´m using SWV, not App-V, at the moment.

And as I understand it, having an anti-virus running in the
background does not interfere when I create my layers with SWV. Is that correct?

In that case then you need to read up on the guides from Symantec for SWV.

Not having any experience of SWV myself I would still say that you should remove AV products, as you should for MSI and App-V repackaging.

The manual will provide all the information you need.

Thanks,

I have already read the SWV user´s guide and it only refers to the SWV interoperability
with anti-virus scanners. (about adding file utility apps to an ignore list).

Nowhere it says that it´s not recommended to create layers on a client with an anti-virus running
on it. Hence my question.

As there are no other takers on this thread your options are to contact Symantec directly for a definative answer, or make your own educated guess - I've already given you mine.
