Installing a MSI package during App-V 5.0 Package deployment

Driver packages cannot be virtualized as they have to communicate directly with the hardware. So packages using a driver have never been virtualized. Until now.

In this article I will show how this is done. I will use an existing package that I made earlier.

Using connection groups to interact locally installed applications with virtual applications

Let’s take the following scnenario: both Microsoft Visio 2010 and Microsoft Project 2010 have been virtualized using Application Virtualization v5.0 techniques.

In this example I will demonstrate how to use virtualized applications within a locally installed one.

GPO For Firefox ADM and ADMX

One of the programs that is used to configure Firefox is the addo-on GPO for Firefox 0.9.2. You get an ADM file, load iton the Windows 2003 server, configure the GPO settings and you have a fully configured and finetuned Firefox at the client.
As an alternative you can use Firefox ADMX. But you need to load a vbscript every time before you can use the GPO Settings.
