VMWare ThinApp v.188.8.131.529532 (x32/x64/ENG) - Silent Installation | 54MB
For those who are not familiar with this product, I propose now to find out what he is and how to handle it. VMware ThinApp - codename: Project North Star («Project North Star", a former Thinstall Virtualization Suite) - one of the world's most powerful package for application virtualization. With this tool you can from traditional applications to easily make a portable-version, which runs from the stick say, does not require any rights in the system and does not change a single file / registry key.
Run any version of virtually any application on a single operating system without conflicts. You can even run multiple versions of the same application. Plug VMware ThinApp, formerly known as Thinstall, into your existing management infrastructure and accelerate your software development and desktop deployment. Deliver and deploy applications more efficiently, more securely, and more cost-effectively with agentless application virtualization.
In principle, most of the portable-software and created with it. The result is achieved by signing the application in a virtual container, inside which creates a virtual representation of the registry and system files. By the way, this program can be used as complementary to PackageFactory for U3, to create. U3p package for U3 system on a flash drive.
100% Agentless Application Virtualization
--Application isolation. VIsolated applications run in a virtual bubble in restricted user accounts without requiring any host modification. Deploy Office 97, 2003, 2007, and. NET applications on the same OS without conflict as the applications run independent of one another.
--Zero-runtime execution. With no installed agent, no footprint is left on the endpoint device. Applications run directly from the compressed state without first caching data to the hard disk, achieving better performance and security of data.
--100% User Mode execution. Client runs on locked-down, unmanaged "kiosk" PCs without Admin rights to execute applications, enabling it to be used on managed and unmanaged PC.
--Block-by-block network streaming. Applications virtualized execute once the minimum amount of code required to run the application is available in the desktop's memory. For example, less than 10% of Microsoft Office needs to be physically streamed to the client in order for it to run. LAN streaming has an average start-up time of just a few seconds.
--Sandbox environments for terminal services. Provide sandboxing for applications running in a terminal services environment so that multiple users can run their own sandboxed application without affecting each other. If one instance of the application tries to make system-wide changes, other users running the same applications are not affected.
--64-bit operating system support. Enables applications to be virtualized and run on 64-bit systems.
--Execution on thin clients. Tested and certified to run virtualized applications on Windows XP-based thin clients.
--Compatibility with a broad range of applications. Proven deployments on simple-to-complex applications ranging from basic Microsoft Office to custom applications with Java or. NET.
Conflict-free Application Delivery
--Active Directory integration. VMware ThinApp does not require any distribution, streaming, or activation servers or agents. It works with AD, ESD enforcement tools, and open protocols so no additional hardware, software licenses and ongoing maintenance costs for backend infrastructure is required.
--Execution from USB key with portable profiles / user settings. Enable a user to run critical applications from a USB key while maintaining corporate security requirements.
--Integration with 3rd-party application management solutions. Creates. MSI and / or. EXE file that plugs into existing electronic software delivery systems (Inventory, Configuration Management Database, Definitive Software Library, Packagers) without additional integrations required.
--Application Sync. Enables application updates for mobile users as well as third parties on the corporate extranet, ensuring availability of the latest version of the application, reducing patch risks to machines that are taken off the network. Update virtual applications via http / https over the LAN or WAN leveraging existing software delivery systems.
Simplified Application Packaging
--Application Link. Allows packaged applications to dynamically establish dependencies ("links") with other packaged applications. Administers create separate packages of interdependent components such as Java or. NET runtimes and the applications that rely on them. Each component is delivered independently while sharing resources across multiple ThinApp packages.
--Package it once, deliver to many. Execute a packaged application on Windows NT, Windows PE, or XP Embedded without retesting or repackaging the application for each operating system.
--System snapshots. Provides administrators with a rapid three-step process for pre-and post-install system states for packaging simplicity and for supporting applications that require a reboot during the installation process.
--ISV embeddable. Organizations can deliver their custom application throughout their extranet using VMware ThinApp application virtualization technology.
Briefly the basic process of creating a portable-programs:
1. Make a snapshot of the system before installation.
2. Install the program, to her, if necessary, patches, additions, cracks (if tebuetsya reboot, then reboot).
3. Make a snapshot after the installation.
4. Choose from the resulting list of the desired program. Next is a comparison of the images and automatically create a project folder Captures (default). Edit the project.
5. Click Build Now and get a portable-program in the folder bin.
6. Test the result on its "portability."
Note: The best way to create portable-software on a "clean" Windows. The best option - is to install a virtual machine (VMware Workstation, Microsoft Virtual Pc, Virtual Box, or others), install Windows (without any additional software) and work is already there.
