Where you can use Virtual Software Packages
After you create virtual software packages (VSPs) with the Workspace Virtualization Agent, you can use them in the different environments. The following table indicates the environments in which VSPs can be used:
Table: VSP environments
Symantec Workspace Streaming
Workspace Streaming provides native support for delivering Virtual Software Packages. See the Symantec Workspace Streaming Admin Guide.
Altiris Notification Server
With Notification Server 7.0 and later, the Workspace Virtualization Agent lets you create tasks and policies. Tasks and policies let you deliver and manage virtual software layers on client computers. See the Software Management Solution User's Guide .
With Notification Server 6.x, the Workspace Virtualization Agent lets you create tasks and policies to deliver and manage virtual software layers on client computers. See the Software Virtualization Solution 6.x Help.
Altiris Deployment Solution
Deployment Solution lets you create jobs to deploy and manage virtual software layers. See the Deployment Solution Admin Guide (6.x) or the Deployment Solution User's Guide (7.x).
Standard management frameworks
The Workspace Virtualization Agent works independently of the Altiris framework. Because API, WMI, and command-line interfaces are supported, you can manage client-side operations with any desktop management product. See the Altiris Software Developer Kit (SDK).
You can use VSPs in a stand-alone environment. To use VSPs, install the SWV Admin tool on a computer and then create or import existing VSPs.
