|Novell® ZENworks® Application Virtualization lets you convert applications that run on Microsoft* Windows* into self-contained virtual applications. After being virtualized, an application becomes a single, isolated file that runs instantly from anywhere, including a thumb drive or other removable media. Unlike traditional installation methods, the single virtual application file does not require a separate setup process, and does not rely on external components and runtimes, reboots, or administrative privileges. The application is now isolated from other system applications, preventing DLL conflicts and other deployment nightmares, yet the experience for the application's user is unchanged.
If you use Novell ZENworks Configuration Management in your environment, you can configure your virtual application so that it checks to ensure that the ZENworks Adaptive Agent is installed on the device and that the device is registered to your ZENworks Management Zone before the application can be launched. You can also publish ZENworks bundles that you can distribute using ZENworks Configuration Management.
NOTE: The Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization Integration Guide provides step-by-step information to help you use Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization to create virtual executable files to run Novell GroupWise®, GroupWise Notify, GroupWise Messenger, and OpenOffice.org Novell Edition.
