I was reading on thin app blogspot and it talks about VMware ThinApp Factory, which I think is used to convert software installers into a format where they can be used to automatically install onto VMware virtual workstations. But, what is VMware ThinApp what is the difference from running an application on VMware Workstation for example, and why is it called "thin" is the application installer actually any smaller, how could it be, or what does it refer to, can someone explain?
I found thin app blogspot talks about VMware ThinApp please explain it?
Hi Christine Turner,
Good day! VMware Thinapp is a virtual application of course that is focused on the automation process of creating virtualized windows applications. It also utilizes vSphere API's to spawn workloads which coverts file share applications into ThinApp applications. While VMware, on the other hand, is focusing on running multiple operating system that is provided by virtual devices too. So in incorporation, you can use VMware as your other operating system and use ThinApps to install applications on it
