Use the instructions provided in this section while working with ZENworks Application Virtualization 8.0.1 and ZENworks Configuration Management.
If you build a virtual application by using theoption on the ZENworks panel of the control console, then copy the application to a machine where the ZENworks Configuration Management Agent is installed, the virtual application might fail when it is launched, displaying the following error:
This application can only be run on devices registered with a ZENworks zone.
Workaround: To avoid this issue, make sure that you save the ZENworks configuration settings (that is, changes made on the ZENworks panel of the console and stored in the *.xappl file) before you build the application. To save the changes, click > .

The following issues in ZENworks Application Virtualization 8.0.1 relate to its use with various Web browsers.
Safari version 4.0.4 or 5.0 might fail after you have created the virtual application if the virtual application is not configured correctly.
Workaround: Make sure that you follow these steps exactly when you build the application:
Select(Option 2) in the Configuration Wizard.
Capture the Before Snapshot.
Install the Safari4 application.
Capture the After Snapshot.
Select the Startup file as @PROGRAMFILES@\Safari\Safari.exe instead of the default (Multiple Files).
Save the configuration, but do not build the virtual application.

Use the instructions provided in this section while you use the Snapshot Wizard to virtualize third-party applications in ZENworks Application Virtualization 8.0.1.
(Fixed in v8.0.2) Building a third-party virtual application using Snapshot Wizard, that would build a single startup file, might fail to launch if you use the default settings for the startup files attribute i.e., “(Multiple Files)”.
For single startup files without any shortcuts: You need to select the appropriate output file as the startup file when an application is run directly from a single executable file. For example, select the startup file as @PROGRAMFILES@\Safari\Safari.exe, if the wizard selects “(Multiple Files)” by default.
For multiple shortcuts to different startup files: If there are multiple shortcuts to different startup files, you have to build the virtual application by clicking the ZENworks Application Virtualization 8.0.1 User Guide.icon and icon in the virtual applications ribbon bar. For more information on using the Snapshot feature, see section “3.6.1 Snapshotting” in the
The wizard cannot be used in this scenario, because it results in broken shortcuts being installed or bundled with the virtual application.
