VMware’s ThinApp solution creates an executable from one or more applications without the requirement of a client agent. This program is normally used within a virtual desktop environment, but can be used with a more traditional environment. Below are some screen captures from the 60-day demo that created an executable of Firefox with Adobe Flash. The default parameters were used in the majority of the selections.
Application virtualization encapsulates the application into a single executable .MSI or .EXE. Just plug in an .MSI or .EXE file to deploy a virtual system environment, including registry keys, DLLs, third-party libraries, and frameworks without requiring any installation of agents on end point devices.
