VMware Thinapp Enterprise 5.2.4 Build 9964600 Full Version
OS Migrations. Quickly migrate your legacy applications to Windows 7 or Windows 8 by eliminating the need to recode, retest and recertify. Faster deployments with less testing mean your business applications will be in production sooner, minimizing downtime and reducing business risks. To make things even easier, you can automatically convert silent-installed applications to ThinApp packages. And, if you’ve already packaged applications with ThinApp for use on XP or other versions of Windows, you can easily convert them to the ThinApp Windows format with ThinApp’s Relink feature.
Application Isolation. Package an entire 32-bit or 64-bit application and its settings into a single .MSI or .EXE executable that can be deployed to many Windows operating environments. These virtual applications are isolated from each other and execute independently without making changes to the underlying operating system, eliminating application-to-application conflict as well as application-to-OS conflicts.
Server Consolidation. The traditional IT model of one application per server requires dedicated hardware for specific applications that cannot coexist, whether for technical reasons or concerns about data isolation. VMware ThinApp 5 eliminates these application silos for better use of existing assets while making your applications easier to manage and deploy.
Security. With VMware ThinApp 5, applications can run in restricted user accounts on locked-down PCs with no system changes and without reducing the security policy. VMware ThinApp 5 has no kernel-mode code, and so cannot violate machine group policy applied to user accounts. This makes virtualized packages safe to deploy in environments where security and stability are vital.
Mobility. Whether on the road or in the office, users require reliable and flexible application access on virtually any computer they have access to, including kiosk and hotel PCs. With VMware ThinApp 5, they won’t need to install software or device drivers and don’t need admin rights. Applications run directly from portable storage devices, including Flash drives.
Support for Windows 10 1709 (Fall Creators Update)
Support for Windows 10 1803 (April 2018 Update)
Additional modules have been added in this release. You must copy them to the deployment machine in specific cases, as desribed below. The modules are not required during application capture:
For 32-bit virtual applications which crash at launch on Windows 10, copy the file dummyTLS.dll to the folder C:\Windows\SysWOW64 on a 64-bit deployment machine or to the folder C:\Windows\System32 on a 32-bit deployment machine.
For 64-bit virtual applications which crash at launch on Windows 10, copy the file dummyTLS64.dll to the folder C:\Windows\System32 on a 64-bit deployment machine.
For 32-bit virtual applications which fail to start when launched from a 64-bit ThinApped application on Windows 10, copy the file dummyNt.exe to the folder C:\Windows\SysWOW64 on a 64-bit deployment machine
One new parameter is available for inclusion in package.ini:
ReleaseShutdownLocksEarly Setting this parameter to 1 fixes an issue that could cause a process to hang during shutdown.
System Requirements and Installation:
You cannot install ThinApp 5.2.4 on Windows XP, Windows 2000, or Windows Server 2003. Consider using ThinApp 5.2.3 or earlier to capture applications on these operating systems. Use ThinApp 5.2.3 or earlier to create a ThinApp project and then use ThinApp 5.2.4 (on a supported OS) to build the virtual application from the project.
The ThinApp 5.2.4 release resolves the following issues:
SASBEG application does not work if Sophos SafeGuard 8 is installed
SASBEG application crashes/loses functionality if Sophos SafeGuard 8 is installed on a 32-bit version of Windows 7.
This issue is resolved in ThinApp 5.2.4.
MobaXterm application fails to start on Windows 10 1703
Copy dummyTLS.dll to C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and dummyTLS64.dll to C:\Windows\System32 folder on a 64-bit version of Windows 10 1703.
