Windows 7 Support

VMware ThinApp 4.5 Released

Jessica Thornsby

VMware has announced version 4.5 of its VMware ThinApp application visualisation for delivering and deploying apps.

This update introduces support for Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2, and comes with a new Relink feature for automatically upgrading existing ThinApp packages to the new ThinApp 4.5 runtime and package format. ThinApp generated MSI packages can now be larger than 2GB without requiring separate CABs or data files. Previously, the entire CAB file needed to be decompressed in order to access data inside ThinApp generated MSI files, but in version 4.5, the ThinApp Management SDK can be used to access data inside these files.

The basic package of VMware ThinApp 4.5 Suite, 1 Year Support and 50 Licenses, costs $6,250.00.
