For more information about the release please see the MDOP blog post http://blogs.technet.com/b/mdop/archive/2011/03/09/app-v-4-6-sp1-and-med-v-2-0-are-available-as-part-of-mdop-2011.aspx
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How do I upgrade from the release candidate to the RTM?
A. We recommend that you re-run the packaging process of the MED-V image using the latest MED-V Workspace Packager. You can then deploy the updated Host Agent and MED-V workspace to computers in your production environment.
If you have already deployed the MED-V workspace and would like to upgrade the MED-V software, run the MED-V Host.exe package on the Windows 7 machines. This exe will upgrade the components in the MED-V workspace.
Q. How do I get support for MED-V now that it is released?
A. If you have existing Professional incidents or a Premier contract, please call the regular number for support.
Premier support, call number 800-936-3100 or 425-454-7946 and provide your Support Account Number and password. This will connect you with a Premier Customer Support Representative.
Professional support, call the appropriate number for the type of Professional Support incidents you have purchased. The numbers are listed on http://support.microsoft.com/gp/offerprophone_new.
If you do not have Professional incidents or a Premier contract, please go to http://support.microsoft.com/gp/offerprophone_new for more information on how to obtain a support agreement.
Q. What happened to the issues I reported on the connect site that were not resolved?
A. The issues reported during the beta program which were not addressed during this release are being reviewed and consider for a future release.

The Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization v2 Beta Refresh is now available for download on the Microsoft Connect site. The updated software provides fixes to customer reported issues and new features including Workspace packager updates which add additional options for customizing the MED-V computer names.
NOTE: The MED-V_HostAgent_setup.exe replaces the MED-V client install MSI and the MED-V_WorkspacePackager_setup.exe replaces the MED-V console install MSI. This change simplifies the install and deployment of these components as they now detect install the correct architecture in a single install. All of the command line options provided for the MSI’s in the previous installs are still supported for these installers.”
The Guest Agent MSI no longer has to be installed by the administrator on the Windows XP image. The Guest Agent is now installed automatically as part of first time setup. For more information see the MED-V Release Candidate Release Notes.
Please read the release notes for important information about upgrading and the rename of the MED-V Installers.
