XenApp packages with Group Policy

If you’re using VMware ThinApp to deploy packages to users, you know the benefits of virtualized applications.

But you still have some big problems:

  • Once the application is deployed, how do you mange, change or configure that application?
  • How do you prevent users from working around your important application settings?
  • How can you maintain those settings even when the computer is offline?
  • Good news for you: We’ve got that problem totally handled.

Watch this video (exclusively for VMware ThinApp administrators) to see exactly how to manage ThinApp packages using Group Policy and PolicyPak:

So, if you needed to tweak a configuration file, edit the package’s registry, or otherwise configure your ThinApp package, you’ve got a real problem.

You would have to:

  • Re-open the package
  • Make those settings
  • Re-build and
  • Redeploy

Then, if a user worked around your settings, what would you do next?

Instead, you can be smarter and have the right tool to manage those ThinApp packages – after those packages are already deployed.

You can create your own PolicyPaks for your applications to manage all the application’s settings, or use one of our preconfigured Paks for lots of common applications like Firefox, WinZip, Office 2010 and more.

There’s nothing extra to buy – this functionality is all included when you’re a PolicyPak Professional customer.

PolicyPak was designed by Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz – who “wrote the book” on Group Policy, runs GPanswers.com, and lives and breathes Group Policy and enterprise software deployments and desktop lockdown.

When you’re ready to manage your ThinApp packages using Group Policy, PolicyPak is here for you.
