Thamim Karim on a virtual vibe…
Hi Thomas, you are totally correct, I have added a extra line to emphasise this. We are seeing really positive feedback to RunVirtual however the two limitations at this point are the need to globally publish and the inability to list applications under the process key in registry.
Great post Thamim but I think you need to emphasize more, that in this situation you have to start Adobe Reader first to get Flash and other plugins to work in the connection group. Adobe Reader is initiating the connection group and that is the reason why you can't start flash from new IE window. This means you really have to consider which plugin is the most important to you – in my case Java was chosen.
I really hope this feature will be expanded in a hotfix or service pack, cause I can see several situations where I want iexplore.exe to look into the virtual bubble.
Hi, IE will still launch alongwith FlashPlayer 10. There is nothing in RunVirtual to detect the newer version locally rather IE will launch with what it can see. This would have to be managed with the deployment.
Are you able to launch applications or executables on the network drive using RunVirtual. I have a scenario where dependencies for a network app are sequenced however, the shortcut points to the network share \ServerSharetest.exe /appve (GUIDS)
Does run virtual work explicitly with locally installed apps..? I tried launching from a batch file and mapped drive to no avail
Not sure what you mean? Can you explain in more detail what you are trying to achieve?
Nice post, good to know lot of nice things in App-v 5.0. But I do have a small doubt in this. Say I have did this for FlashPlayer 10, and I able to open IE and access flash contents from the virtual package. But I do have some flash player files which can play only with 11.0 version and I have installed that version locally. will it automatically redirect IE to launch the flash content in 11.0 from the locally installed package. Or hence we have configured IE for virtual flash player 10.0 it will fail, If so how can we handle this situation. Thanks.
