          Hi

           

           

          Could you explain in more detail what you need to know: how to virtualize an application with LANDesk Application Vritualization, or building a software package for this type of app?

                A clean machine should be a machine with an OS on. DOT, nothing more, no LANDesk agent, no AV! Preferably you take the OS that is the oldest in the organization if multiple versions are in use. The Virtualization software should be installed on a server and made available through a share. The more you put on the machine that you use, the more chance that DLL's or other files are not marked as required for the installation.

                 

                After you have checked the files that are selected during the capture process you need to test the EXE or MSI whether there are files that remain unwanted.Also make sure the app really works. Personally I copy the EXE or MSI to another clean machine and run it by double clicking.

                 

                Assuming all worked well in the previous step I would create a software distribution package of the type: ‘New Virtualized Application package' if the output of your capturing is an EXE.  If the output is an MSI, you need to select the type: ‘New MSI package'

                 

                 

                 

                 

                 

                Hope this helps,

                    Buggs, you really need to read the manuals and only then start posting the questions.  When you do post, please try to include some information on what you have actually tried, and if there is an error please detail it.  At the moment, you are posting open questions with very little chance for people to give meaningful help.  This is not a replacement for training and can't give you the level of support you are expecting with the level of detail you are providing.
