How to create App-V Package Accelerator in App-V 4.6 SP1

In this post I am going to create a package accelerator and test the output by creating a virtual package with the accelerator. We create a Package Accelerator so we do not need to reinvent the application settings when recreating the package.

I am not going to create a virtual package (App-V) necessary for the creation of the CAB file, I assume you know how to create a app-v package.
