You can create a template in View Administrator to specify a group of ThinApp applications. You can use templates to group applications together by function, vendor, or any other logical grouping that makes sense in your organization.

About this task

With ThinApp templates, you can streamline the distribution of multiple applications. When you assign a ThinApp template to a machine or desktop pool, View Administrator installs all of the applications that are currently in the template.

Creating ThinApp templates is optional.

Note:

If you add an application to a ThinApp template after assigning the template to a machine or desktop pool, View Administrator does not automatically assign the new application to the machine or desktop pool. If you remove an application from a ThinApp template that was previously assigned to a machine or desktop pool, the application remains assigned to the machine or desktop pool.

Prerequisites

Add selected ThinApp applications to View Administrator.

Procedure

  1. In View Administrator, select Catalog > ThinApps and click New Template.
  2. Type a name for the template and click Add.

  4. Select the ThinApp applications that you want to include in the template and click Add.

    You can press Ctrl+click or Shift+click to select multiple applications.
