A video from VMware showing the integration of VMware Thinapp 4.7.2 and VMware Horizon.
The video shows the whole process, like the prescan process > installation of a software > and then a post scan. The new screen which presents the integration checkbox where it’s possible to specify the URL of Horizon appliance, and where the presenter is building a Virtualized Internet Explorer 6. In fact, when you check the box for the application to be managed by Horizon, the standalone exe file can’t be executed. A message saying that the application is managed by Horizon is showed.
When the building process finishes, the application is packaged into an MSI package, which is saved to the network location. You’ll be able to see the GUI of Horizon and the management of those thinapp applications in Horizon. Those applications can be entitled to the end users.
We’ll see the user’s desktop, where the thinapp packages are automatically registered. You’ll be able to check out on how the user can activate an application from the application catalogue by himself.
You could also have a look at my serie where I’m installing VMware Horizon in my lab. You can find the first article of those series over here: How-to install Horizon Application Manager in a lab.
VMware Horizon is a powerfull application which can deliver applications to user’s desktop, tablet, or mobile device.
The integration of VMware ThinApp and VMware Horizon Application Manager make it easy to entitle and deploy applications to end users. Watch the demo to see how this works.
