I am trying App Virt for 45-days, with hopes to purchase it after that. Unfortunately, I am not seeing a great deal of relavent (to me) examples on thinstall.com. Don't get me wrong there are some examples, but the ones I have tried do not work. And I prefer the LANDesk forum and the knowledge that gets thrown around here.
With all that said, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in sharing some of there step by step instructions or copies of their package.ini files.
Again, being new, I have only tried 3 apps so far...
1) VMware VI client 2.0 - failed
2) iexplore 6 with java 1.4.2_9 - I think it works but not sure yet
3) an app called Totale Atlas, which include iatlas & acrobat reader 7.0.0 & an api to capture signatures fusing the topaz installation - need to test with a signature captue pad still.
I am also wondering if app virt is going to do what I want it to do:
along with the apps I mentioned I plan to virtualize:
Lotus Notes 7.0.4 & 8.5
serveral freeware utilities
landesk 32-bit console
and then I am hopeing that I can upgrade all my pc's with the latest sw from java, abobe & .Net framework with patch manager, but if I have a need to back rev one of those app virt can help...example...
OS = XP sp2
.net = 3.5sp1
java = 1.6_X
reader = 9.1
IE = 7
If I have a vendor whose wesite requires IE 6 & java 1.4_x. I would like to know if I can somehow virtualize that requirement... I do not think I understand how to package ie6 if the machine already has 7 installed.
Thoughts about any of this?
Thanks in advance,
