VMware launches ThinApp 4.0 to run virtually any application on any Windows Operating System
VMware, Inc. has announced the upcoming availability of VMware ThinApp 4, an application virtualization solution that lets customers run multiple versions of virtually any application on any Windows operating system without conflict.

Applications are isolated from the underlying OS, eliminating costs of conflicting resources and allowing different versions of an application to run side by side. For example, users can run both Internet Explorer 6 and Internet Explorer 7 on the same operating system without disruption.

ThinApp, based on Thinstall technology requires no pre-installed software on physical or virtual PCs and no new deployment infrastructure or management tools. ThinApp improves application packaging, delivery, and management by enabling plug-and-play applications using an enterprise’s existing systems and management tools. ThinApp packages applications in familiar formats (.MSI or .EXE) that can plug into existing infrastructure for software license management, deployment, audit and compliance.

ThinApp 4 introduces two new features: Application Link and Application Sync, which enable two virtualized applications to communicate with each other and remote virtual applications to be updated. These features are important for easier management of the virtual applications.

The platform enables the same virtual application to be streamed from a network, presented from a terminal server, delivered to USB stick (e.g., for a contract worker), or delivered through standard software delivery tools with little to no integration required. ThinApp also helps IT administrators manage applications that do not run as well in shared-user environments such as Microsoft Terminal Server. By creating a separate instance with its own private sandbox, each application runs in the context of each user session without having to be modified; if a user “breaks” the application, other users are not impacted.

The VMware ThinApp offering, which includes a copy of VMware Workstation and 50 client licenses, is priced at US$5,000. The client licenses are priced at US$39 per endpoint. The ThinApp licenses are perpetual. ThinApp will be available for purchase within 30 days through VMware’s network of distributors, resellers and OEMs.
