How can virtual applications that require integration work together?

Elaine asked, "If applications are isolated, how can separate applications requiring integration work together? Do they have to be packaged as part of the same VSP?"

Hi Elaine. Active Virtual Software Packages are visible system-wide. So virtualized applications interact normally with each other and with processes running from the base. "Isolation" refers to when there are duplications on the system -- e.g., two different versions of the same DLL at the same path, in two different VSPs. SVS ensures that each application sees only the version it needs to run correctly.

This is an interesting question - especially when a file is used by multiple virtualized programs. How is this handled?
