Xenocode Releases Tools for Packing Apps as Self-contained Executables



Xenocode has introduced its Xenocode Virtual Application Studio ISV Edition, designed to help developer package their Windows, .NET, and Java-based applications into self-contained virtual executables that run instantly on end-user desktops -- without installation, setup, dependencies or conflicts.

Virtual Application Studio ISV Edition lets you package applications for delivery by capturing a "snapshot" of applications in a ready-to-run state. The software then builds a lightweight, self-contained virtual executable that runs instantly on any Windows desktop, regardless of operating system version or privilege restrictions. Xenocode's virtualization technology adds negligible space and performance overhead and does not require a copy of any host operating system to be included in the deliverable. Virtual applications can be run instantly off the Web, file shares, and CDs, saved into legacy MSI packages, or deployed on portable USB devices.

"Application virtualization will reshape the way software publishers deliver products to their customers. Unlike legacy deployment technologies such as MSI, Xenocode technology provides end-users with an instant, reliable experience while dramatically reducing development, test, and support costs," says Xenocode's Kenji Obata. "With Xenocode Virtual Application Studio ISV Edition, software publishers and their customers will never again experience a failed setup or wait hours for applications to install."

Application virtualization is a technology that separates applications from the underlying operating systems on which they execute. Unlike hardware virtualization solutions that require an entire copy of the host operating system, Xenocode's lightweight application virtualization technology emulates core operating system features required for application execution.
