Softricity (now Microsoft) or Thinstall may have some white papers on it.
I'm pretty excited about the Citrix Streaming Server as it is the easiest to
use and integrates very nicely with Presentation Server 4.5 and the
isolation environment has a rule list (like AIE) which allows for additional
flexibiliy.  Softgrid and Thinstall have their strengths but they also have
their weakness too.

Are there any easy-to-read primers on application streaming?  What it does,
benefits, advantaged/disadvantages, etc?  My manager was at a user group on
PS4.5 and they touted huge improvements to app streaming.  It sounds like I
may have good use for it, but need to get up to speed on it since I really
know nothing about it.

If the applicaiton is installed locally then the streamed application will
use that. So in your example Adobe Reader would need to be installed locally
on the client. 

 

However if Adobe reader was not installed locally on the client, you would
need to package Adobe Reader and Outlook into the one single package and
deploy that.

ni the middle of a new farm build and I am looking into some streaming with
PS 4.5. I have heard conflicting things on this so I hope some of you who
have had your hands on this can share your thoughts.

 

If I stream Outlook, what happens when someone tries to open an attachment
like a PDF?  If the reader installed locally (not streamed) does it use that
copy and open the PDF or does the acrobat reader need to be part of the
streamed app as well? 

 

What about a hyperlink?  does iexplore have to be part of the streamed app
package or is it smart enought to know explorer is installed elsewhere and
can use it?

 

I am building some vm's to test all of this, i am just curious what soem of
you who have been down this road have seen.

 

Thanks!
