Learn how to virtualize applications!
The VMware Workstation team is pleased to announce that VMware ThinApp Starter Edition (Windows only, English only) is exclusively available at no cost to anyone who purchases or upgrades to VMware Workstation 7 from November 11, 2010 6pm PT through April 30, 2011.
Why are we bundling VMware ThinApp Starter Edition with VMware Workstation 7?
A large number of our customers use VMware Workstation to help them with their migration to Windows 7. We thought this would be a great, risk free way for VMware Workstation 7 customers to learn how application virtualization can make their migration even easier. Now with VMware ThinApp Starter Edition and VMware Workstation, you can experience the benefits of application virtualization without any risk of mucking up your PC.
After you install VMware ThinApp Starter Edition you can immediately package an application, typically a legacy Windows XP application, and run it on Windows 7 without the need to recode or retest the application.
Try virtualizing Internet Explorer 6 as a first step. A lot of our customers are doing this to maintain compatibility with existing applications as they migrate to Windows 7. This takes only minutes by clicking through the Setup Capture process to get a fully virtualized image for deployment on Windows 7. After installing VMware ThinApp Starter Edition:
- Click through the Setup Capture steps.
- Select Internet Explorer as shown here to virtualize IE 6 on your Windows XP system.
Once you try VMware ThinApp Starter Edition, we hope you will be convinced that application virtualization can save porting costs, eliminate application conflicts, and simplify distribution of legacy applications on Windows 7.

How is the functionality different than VMware ThinApp Enterprise?
VMware ThinApp Starter Edition does not include Active Directory Integration and AppSync.
What’s the catch?
No catch. VMware ThinApp Starter Edition is offered to VMware Workstation 7 customers for use by a single individual at no cost, and no risk. The VMware ThinApp Starter Edition EULA allows for single user packaging of one or many applications. The EULA for this edition allows for the deployment of one or many of these applications on a single client. To redistribute the packaged applications to more than one client, you will need to purchase VMware ThinApp Enterprise product.
