[THIN] Re: Multiple apps using the same HKLM with different values...

Not sure what Citrix is smoking if they claim that MFPS 4.0 will end
siloing.  I agree that AIE, RTO and the Aurema technology will do wonder for
minimizing the need to this, but for some organization I do not see this
happening. 

A few examples as to why siloing would still be required:
        Volatile application
        Different Maintenance Procedures/Processes for different
applications
        Security requirements (This can cover a wide range)
        Different OS Patch level requirements (isolate to minimize risks)
        Project/Department directive (People don't like to share.  The "it's
my server" attitude.  Or "I paid for it")
        Separation of duties (The person supporting financial apps doesn't
need access to clinical apps)
        Vendor supported solutions
        Different Service Level Agreements for different set of applications
        Antiquated licensing schemes dreamed up by vendors

I'm sure there are many others that I haven't mentioned.

Well, in saying that... I would have to say that I think is going in the
right direction with MFPS 4.0.  Let's hope it lives up to the hype and
doesn't end up like Installation Manager or the Universal Print Driver.

If not potentially MPS 4.0 . . . When it's released, assuming you're needing
to do this in a terminal services environment.

Application Isolation Environments
This technology, abbreviated "AIE," lets you install side-by-side
applications into their own "isolation environments" on a single MetaFrame
server. Each application's registry keys, files, DLLs, objects, etc. are
written to a special subfolder. Citrix engineers in the tech lab showed us
how you could install Access 97 and Access 2000 together on the same server,
each within its own isolation environment. You can also publish applications
so that they run with specific AIEs.

Citrix claims that this AIE technology coupled with the performance
technology from Aurema and RTO will mean the end of siloing.

This technology is somewhat similar to Softricity's, although there are
several major differences.

Softricity is probably the product your looking for.

Hi list,

somehow I seem to get back to this list, must be a good sign....

Í've read something about being able to run mutliple versions of an
application that use the same HLKM registry setting.

Somehow it was done by virutalizing the enviroment etc etc, don't know
excactly how it was done .....that's what I'm trying to find out.

Can anyone help me and maybe remember which product or tool I'm refering
to...???

What I'm trying to do is this (in short)

program files\app version 10 --> uses HKLM\software\app program files\app
version 11 --> uses HKLM\software\app

normally this can't be done, but somewhere in the last weeks someone posted
a message about this....

any help is appreciated.

Greetings
