The information in this Readme pertains to Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization, which lets you convert applications that run on Microsoft Windows into self-contained virtual applications.
The following information is included in this Readme:
This section describes new features, enhancements, and bug fixes that are part of the ZENworks Application Virtualization 11.0 release.
Shutdown Shims: Enables you to configure an executable that should be run after you initiate the shutdown of the application, before the application exits completely.
Startup Applications: Automatically registers applications assigned as startup applications on initial login to the plug-in portal. The application icons and associations are automatically registered on the device when the user logs in.
Containers: Desktop application containers in ZENworks Application Virtualization 11.0 provide a means for the administrator to define a set of applications that share a common My Documents folder, which can be isolated from the rest of the system. For instance, if you have left your laptop at work, using ZENworks Application Virtualization you can log into the portal, unlock the container, run the virtual application over the web, open the files in the My Documents folder, make the required changes, and close the application. When the application exits, the My Documents data is synchronized with the server, and the local copy is stored in a secure, encrypted container. This data is encrypted to ensure that if the device is stolen or lost, unauthorized users do not have access to the data.
