Microsoft has released the 2009 version of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP); the software is available for download to Software Assurance customers. MDOP 2009 will work seamlessly with Windows Vista Enterprise and goes to confirm Microsoft’s commitment to provide the enterprise environment with a software product that features an enhanced level of manageability and productivity.

“We are announcing the availability of Microsoft’s updated Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack – MDOP 2009. MDOP 2009 includes updates to Microsoft Application Virtualization and Asset Inventory Services, as well as the first included release of Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization. Additionally, MDOP 2009 still includes Microsoft Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset, Microsoft Advanced Group Policy Management, and Microsoft System Center Desktop Error Monitoring, explains Product Manager Scott Woodgate.


Here is a list of features included in the 2009 version of MDOP (Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack):
- Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V 1.0)
- Cumulative Update to Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V 4.5 CU1)
- Updated Asset Inventory Service (AIS)
- Standard MDOP tools: Microsoft Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset, Microsoft Advanced Group Policy Management, and Microsoft System Center Desktop Error Monitoring.

MDOP 2009, as we’ve mentioned before, is tailored to work best with Windows Vista Enterprise, but this is not to say that Microsoft is forgetting about the upcoming Windows 7 operating system. Senior Product Manager for MED-V, Ran Oelgiesser explains: “App-V 4.5 CU1 is now available as part of MDOP 2009. App-V 4.5 CU1 adds support for Windows 7 beta, so customers can move ahead with application testing in preparation for enterprise deployments. It also contains a few improvements such as instant access or removal of applications assigned to end users. When Windows 7 releases, we are committed to supporting the final product within 90 days of general availability.”

The MDOP 2009 update is available to the 14.4 million Software Assurance customers at the Microsoft Volume Licensing Site (MVLS).
