1.1 Using the Configuration Wizard to Prepare Applications for Virtualization

ZENworks Application Virtualization includes a Configuration Wizard that helps you prepare common applications for virtualization. The recipes are dynamic, so they are visible only on the platform or architecture on which they are supported.

You can now run a desktop scan on the local machine for installed applications and match them to the current template list. An administrator can then select from the list of matched applications and virtualize one or more in a single step.

The following applications are available in the template list:

To use the Configuration Wizard to virtualize applications:

  1. Click Start > All Programs > Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization 9.0.1 > Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization 9.0.1 > to start the application.

    The Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization 9.0.1 startup dialog box is displayed. You can use this dialog box to scan, build, manually configure, or take a snapshot of the virtual applications installed on the device. If you do not want to see this dialog when you start the virtual application, select Do not show this dialog at startup.
