VMware Release ThinApp 5.0

VMware has released version 5 of its application virtualization product ThinApp.  With the release VMware announced that the product lifecycle has been extended to 5 years.

ThinApp is available as a standalone product and part of all Horizon bundles and the Horizon Suite. Since this is a major release, customers must also fulfill their subscription and receive new license keys along with the download of the bits at My VMware.


Version 5 provides the following new options:

  • Support for 64-bit applications
  • Support for Windows 8.1
  • Optimized architecture leveraging NTDLL.DLL for improved application compatibility and performance
  • Support for integration of AppSense personalization settings between native and ThinApp versions of applications.
  • Ability to run virtualized Internet Explorer 10 (32- or 64-bit)
  • Improved ADM and ADMX policy template files for ThinDirect
  • Ability to virtualize Office 2013 (keep in mind though that Microsoft most probably doesn’t support this as they do not support virtualizing Office 2013 for App-V either)
