3.0 Understanding the Upgrade Requirements

  • All application configuration documents and application certificates created with ZENworks Application Virtualization 8.x, 9.x or 10.x must be re-created in order for application streams to work with the ZENworks Application Virtualization 11.0 standalone components.

    To generate a new certificate and regenerate the configuration files:

    1. In the Advanced section of the ZENworks Application Virtualization Studio, click the App Config button to regenerate the application stream configuration files.

    2. To generate a new site license certificate, click Advanced.

    3. In the Application Certificates dialog box, click Request Certificate.

    4. Specify the following information in the fields:

      • Organization: The organization name.

      • Unit: The user or unit name.

      • Allowed Portal Hosts: The allowed host names of the servers from which the application will stream.

    5. Click Request to request the site license certificate, then save the certificate to a desired location.

    6. Click the App Config button to regenerate the application stream configuration files again.

  • ZENworks Application Virtualization versions 8.x, 9.x, 10.x and 11.x always run side by side on a device. The ZENworks Application Virtualization 11.x installation does not change the ZENworks Application Virtualization 8.x, 9.x or 10.x installations in any way. However, if you open a virtual application and save it in version 11.x, it should not be subsequently used with version 8.x, 9.x or 10.x.
