More and more companies choose to implement virtual applications because they offer fast and easy deployment, reduced security risks and the possibility to run multiple versions of the same application, just to name a few benefits.
Advanced Installer comes to your help with its latest support for Microsoft's App-V technology which enables you to virtualize your application in minutes. Creating an App-V build is just a few extra clicks away from creating your standard installer. Zero-changes are required in your application.
App-V package tutorial
Because App-V packages contain virtual applications, the resources they require will also be virtual. Advanced Installer supports complete virtualization of:
- Registry keys and values
- File associations
No physical installation
A virtual application runs just like its physically installed counterpart. Because virtual applications never get installed on the client machine and they run in their isolated virtual containers completely separated from the operating system, there are no installation problems and no application compatibility issues.
Advanced Installer supports building multiple installer variations from the same project, drastically reducing the amount of time needed to author an App-V installer. All you have to do is to specify that you also want an App-V build, hit the Build button and an App-V package will be generated next to your regular installer.
No change required
The App-V technology works entirely at the installer package level. You don't have to change anything in your application to virtualize it. All you need is a properly authored App-V package, which Advanced Installer will create for you.
