If you were not aware, ThinApp 5.0 has been announced, ThinApp allows you to encapsulate programs into isolated packages that can be run on many PCs, even if the application is a native Windows XP application it can run on Windows 8. Along with AD or Horizon authentication to protect your applications from being run outside the environment or without authentication.

Here are the main updates to the application.

  • 64-bit application support
  • AppSense support
  • Office 2013 and Internet Explorer 10 support
  • ADM and ADMX for GPO management of ThinDirect
  • No more ‘End-of-Availability’! ThinApp will remain a standalone offering in parallel of being bundled with all the Horizon products

If you haven’t used ThinApp before, I challenge you to give it a whirl, it can be quite powerful. Check out the full story here.
