MyUninstaller tool is helpful to find the correct uninstall string for whatever installed software application.

This portable tool shows a list of all installed application with a lot of details and additional information that the standard Add/Remove applet doesn't display: product name, company, version, uninstall string, installation folder, etc.

Customers who use Symantec Workspace Virtualization can choose between the Standard Version or the Pro Version that includes streaming. Between SWV and SWV Pro you can also use SMART. And there is a new version available that you can use to centraly manage your applications, and give the end user some control on his layers like activate, de-activate and reset.

The new version can be downloaded from our website or you can send me a message and I will ensure you get a version.

Just like SWV, DinamiQs SMART is free for home and personal use. In the world of VDI DinamiQs has set new standards for speed, efficiency and end-user experience. Part of the DinamiQs VDI stack is S.M.A.R.T., which has developed into a full fledged Desktop and Software management application.

The S.M.A.R.T. software helps end-users access those applications that they are entitled to. S.M.A.R.T. allows self-service and self-repair of these –packaged applications....

Symantec Workspace Streaming is excellent technology when used in conjunction with VDI desktops.  You can stream applications to a non-persistent VDI image on demand.  One of the interesting issues that comes up in a non-persistent environment is the application "goes away" at the end of the session.

We have added the ability to reclaim application licenses when the machine logs off.  To enable this functionality add the following to your AppStreamCfg.txt file:

PURGE_LICENSES_AT_LOGOFF=true

Vbscripts are not currently natively supported as Wise Composer event scripts but composer created packages are capable of running a script via the wscript/csript engine.  The following how-to article documents how to set up your event scripts and your vbscript to work correctly without the need to 'wrap' it within a batch file:

You wonder, where is the new version of SVS Multitool?

Well, it is called SWV MultiTool now.

Are you willing to beta test? Will you be an active beta tester? Then send me a message and we'll send you the latest beta.

Kind Regards, FrankB

Me and my team worked several weeks on html5 technology to get access to VDi images from a remote location without having the need to install software. And wow that rocks.

HTMl5 gives people some very cool ways in doing their work.

Can you imagine starting Excell on an iPad?

Or using flash? On an iPad?

Although tablets are not really designed for running desktops on them, just think about the lack of a keyboard, the results are very promising.

If you want to experience a Full Windows 7 desktop on an iPad with html5 technology, pm me and I will send you an account that you can use.

Now Virtualization is really going to break through as more and more barriers are taken away.

Parkdale, free and portable utility to quickly perform a speed test on disks, cdroms and network shares. Helpful to investigate how and where are bottlenecks in local and network connections.

The program has two different modes:

BlockAccess - The test data is read from/written onto the disk directly without using the filesystem.
FileAccess - The test data is read from/written into a normal file using the filesystem.

What once started as a website for Virtualization nerds has become the huge Symantec community of today.

I can still remember the day's that Altiris Juice started. What a cool idea to reward contributors and give space for those nerds.

And wow.

Looking at my stats I just saw that within three weeks i will be celebrating my 5 year membership:

Member for: 4 years 49 weeks
 

If I think about this, there is no other webiste that I visit and contribute to as long as what i still call juice.

And that is what it is for me

for almost 5 year Symantec connect gives me juice in my work.

Keep up the good work.
