[THIN] Re: Quick Question on Streaming

that's kind of what I am getting at.  To do a blank completely vanilla
Windows 2003 install, install PS 4.5 then stream everything.  but it is the
things the applications kick out to like adobe, or word and things that get
tricky.

But if I am following this correctly, you have to either package the helpers
with the app, install them locally on the server, or do some content
redirection to pull down the appropriate stream when needed.

it's interesting to contemplate.  It makes all version upgrades easier but
sounds like a lot of work to get up and running.

One caveat on this post- I am not sure how much of the file association
features will be in the first release……

Not exactly, the new Desktop Streaming will have the ability to push file
associations to the desktop so it will be possible to associate it either
with a streamed app, a local app or a Presentation server app through
content re-direction- it is starting to get VERY interesting!!

Application streaming to the desktop is just virtualization of file and
registry locations.  All local file extension mappings will still remain.
Therefore PDF and URL links would point to the same place on the local
device.



Same goes for Isolation Environments on the PS.

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!



Greg
