Now in Microsoft App-V 4.5 you can execute a command prompt for the said virtual package from the command prompt. There’re two steps we need to do however: 1) Find out the package short name  2) Launch the exe for the command prompt

The following command will look at the virtual applications we have on the client and return the short names for that app: sftmime.exe /query obj:app /short

Once you get the applications name, just copy one of the app, in this case “Launch SlingPlayer 1.5.0.322” and use it to launch a command prompt for this application. We run the following command: sfttray.exe /exe cmd.exe /launch “Launch SlingPlayer 1.5.0.322” or sfttray.exe /exe cmd.exe “Launch SlingPlayer 1.5.0.322”
