Q:
Does the end user need to do anything special to run a new virtualized application?

Generate a digital license after an application runs on the destination machine as a workaround to Office XP detecting a hardware change.

When packaging Office XP (or any portion of it) off of a CD and manually entering the Key when capturing, etc, you will run into an issue when bringing the VSA to a different PC. When launching the VSA on a new PC and trying to use the application, it will tell you that it has detected a significant machine change since it was installed and will give you only limited functionality.
