We have been busy in work updating our AVE product to be App-V 5.0 compatible, and as you can probably guess, this has not been a trivial task. In anticipation of launching “next generation” version of AVE that supports App-V 5 packages, I would like to open up a call for those interested in beta-testing the upcoming product.
Hello, We have just released update to Application Virtualization Explorer, version 2.4.5. This update adds explicit support for three new (OSD) policy elements that were introduced in hotfix 8 for 4.6 SP1 and in 4.6 SP2. These policy elements are mainly meant to fix issue with Adobe Reader protected mode and now you can set them directly from AVE’s […]
For a long time already, Application Virtualization Explorer (AVE) has had the ability to set and edit virtualized environment variables per application basis (like you could do in the Sequencer by using that cumbersome OSD -tab), but in the recently released 2.4.0 version we decided to add support for editing variables at the package level too.
We have just released a new version of AVE, version 2.4, which adds some new features and enhances the existing functionality in the product.
Oh man, I cannot believe that the old issue kind of came back to haunt us. Back in the last year we fixed an issue in our App-V -related products that caused all App-V 4.6 packages to be flagged as 64-bit packages, now it was the reverse.
Windows Team blog has just announced, for the first time publicly, development and the details of App-V 5.0. Along with the new App-V version. Along with the next App-V version, the blog post also announced Microsoft’s User Environment Virtualization (UE-V) product (which was previously known with codename “Park City”).
In the interest of full disclosure, I was recently contacted by a publisher who asked if I would like to review a new book, called Microsoft Application Virtualization Advanced Guide and written by an Argentinian(?) guy called Augusto Alvarez. As the topic sounds interesting enough, I was actually glad to have an opportunity to take a closer look at this book I actually already had heard about before.
Recently I was involved with the customer who uses, amongst the traditional App-V Management Server –based RTSP publishing, a HTTP publishing script that was posted in the App-V Team’s blog mid-2010. This script constructs necessary APPLIST information out of manifest XML files detected on a virtual directory, but unfortunately it has some shortcomings which I decided to fix and present an enhanced version here as a replacement.
