ThinApp provides application virtualization by decoupling an application from the underlying operating system and its libraries and framework and bundling the application into a single executable file called an application package.

To manage ThinApp applications in Horizon Administrator, you must use the ThinApp Setup Capture wizard to capture and package your applications in MSI format and store the MSI packages in an application repository.

An application repository is a Windows network share. You use Horizon Administrator to register the network share as an application repository. You can register multiple application repositories.

Note: If you have multiple application repositories, you can use third-party solutions to manage load balancing and availability. Horizon 7 does not include load balancing or availability solutions.

See the Introduction to VMware ThinApp and the ThinApp User's Guide for complete information on ThinApp features and how to use the ThinApp Setup Capture wizard.
