I have just started with thinapp and would like to get a clarification on below items. I read through the documentation but it was not clear on these item.
I got in touch with landesk support and discussed these but there wasn't any ticket logged for this for me to follow up with support. I mailed the details of discussion to support engineer and didn't get any response.
#1: Is there a way to prove comandline option to the actual exe by providing command line options to the virtual exe?
Support engineer answered there is no way to do this and said he would check with developers an confirm. I would like to get a confirmation if there any third party tools and any other way to make the virtual exe to accept comline options.
#2: Updating files in the virtual application without rebuilding and redeployment
Support engineer answerd there is no way to do this and said he would check with developers an confirm. I would like to get a way to push only the updated files with rebuilding the virtual exe again.
#3: Editors to edit the virtual exe?
Ans: Support engineer answerd there are no tools to edit the virtual exe but I would like to cross check if there are third party tools to edit the virtual exe.
#4: Troubleshoot the applications problems
Ans: support engineer mentioned he is going to check with developers if there are any other tools other than logmonitor.exe to troubleshoot or monitor problems with virtual exe.
#5:Specify the actual version and subversion so that updates to package will not change the actual version of the package
Ans: I would like to know complete details about the versioning of application so that intermediate changes to the application will not change the actual version of the application. For example: I've packaged Firefox 3.0 and if there are any changes to the same version of application there should be some subversion available to update so the modifications done to Firefox 3.0 virtual exe are pulled by the clients using appsync which works on versioning. If the a details documentation on which version appsync depends on and how exactly it works, it would be great.
#6: Folder structure of the application on the client
I would like to know how will be the folder structure be on the client side if I use url (not share) for appsync. a details documentation on how to configure the url and how will the client and server folder structure will be, it would be great.
#7:Can the application be used by more than one user in multi user os (2003) (windows 7?)?
I guess the exe will be in use so I’m guessing it won’t work but would liek to know how it is supported when more than one user is suing the application.
#8:What should be the values of the following setting in package.ini if do not want to prompt the user for update ever?
A doc explaining each of these settings in detail would be great.
Hoping some one from landesk support will respond to this and doesn't ignore as in case of the support call.
