VMware ThinApp is an innovative method to accelerate application deployment and simplify application migration with agentless application virtualization. With VMware ThinApp, applications are packaged into single executables that run completely isolated from each other and the operating system for conflict-free execution on end-point devices. Application packages are made compatible with heterogeneous versions of Windows platforms, eliminating costly recoding and regression testing for new OS environments such as Windows 7.
