Our ThinApp Blog (http://blogs.vmware.com/ThinApp) does have a large amount of content. The problem is that we are using a Blog application to store it so everything gets archived in a date order. We have still relevant content dating 2008.

 

First, our categories.. We used to have them listed on the front page but they are gone for some reason.. Here's how to find them:

 

1. On your right hand you'll find Archives.. Click on the name "Archive" to open: http://blogs.vmware.com/thinapp/archives.html

2. Scroll down on the page and you'll find all our Categories:

I have found that the search engine we use does not find absolutely everything on the Blog. Therefore am I personally using Google and its site: functionality.

Example:
If I want to search for Java on the blog this is what I write in the Google search form:
site:blogs.vmware.com/thinapp java

ThinApp 4.6.1 released!

Posted by pbjork Feb 25, 2011

ThinApp 4.6.1 was released this night, European time.. I will not repeat what information is already out there.. Simply point you in the right direction:

 

Blog post about the release:

http://blogs.vmware.com/thinapp/2011/02/vmware-thinapp-461-whats-new.html

 

Release notes:

http://www.vmware.com/support/thinapp4/doc/releasenotes_thinapp461.html

 

Download the bits from here:

One thing we have worked on is MS Office 2010 WITHOUT the need of a locally installed Deployment Kit (which pretty much makes virtualization of Office pointless in my view).. Please find separate blogs post about it here:

Our ThinApp Blog (http://blogs.vmware.com/ThinApp) does have a large amount of content. The problem is that we are using a Blog application to store it so everything gets archived in a date order.  One way to make it easier to find relevant information is to navigate with the help of the right hand side Categories but that is still very limited. Second is our search feature. I have found that the search engine we use does not find absolutely everything on the Blog.

 

Therefore am I personally using Google and its site: functionality.

 

Example:
If I want to search for Java on the blog this is what I write in the Google search form;
java site:blogs.vmware.com/thinapp

 

Please try it out if you cannot find what you are looking for that is ThinApp related on our Blog.

It is an interesting though.. I would argue that in general application virtualization is not designed for it but it is sort of a side effect. Do not get me wrong.. I am not claiming it is a bullet proof solution. Far from it but it does add a layer of extra protection. The conclusion in below report created by a German company can be discussed but I still think it is valuable to share..

 

Happy reading.. http://goo.gl/s1OiL

I just posted the years first ThinApp blog post on my behalf. It is a workaround sometimes needed to get locally installed application to integrate with virtualized IE.
