All – I’m pleased to announce that the ThinApp Factory has now taken residence on our VMware GitHub location. What started out as a Fling and garnered plenty of valuable feedback has now come back to the community as a freely downloadable and customizable technology to be used by customers and partners. We’ve de-composed the appliance itself and provided documentation that allows you to re-assemble on the distribution of your choice or you can simply use the components and build your own better faster mousetrap if you choose.

On behalf of VMware, I’d like to announce that we have released version 4.7.3 of VMware ThinApp. The big headline for this release is enabling ThinApp packages to run across the broadest spectrum of operating systems from Windows XP to the recently released Windows 8. We’ve also updated the ThinApp Factory Fling to include the 4.7.3 runtime so that you can automagically package with the most current ThinApp version. Lastly, the ThinApp SDK has been rev’d to keep up with those of you creating some integrated offerings or just streamlining the registration of ThinApp packages. (see other blog entries about how to use the SDK)

As always, we invite you to evaluate ThinApp and see for yourself how virtualizing Windows applications can simplify delivery and management.
We are excited to announce that Ninite has provided VMware customers a trial feed for use with the recently released ThinApp Factory. In short, the trial feed provides the ThinApp Factory a cloud-based catalog of 99 applications that can be pulled directly into the Factory and used to jumpstart our customers ThinApp Factory installations. The process is incredibly simple and can even be described as 'fun' if you have geek DNA in your veins.
Steps to use Ninite to Jumpstart your ThinApp Factory
1. Install Thinapp Factory Appliance
2. Add Ninite Trial Feed to your ThinApp Factory Instance
