Pros
  • + Highest rate of app compatibility of all virtualization products. The simplest packaging of all products, very little skill required. Native support for drivers. Ability to control isolation or integration of individual files and reg keys. Citrix Ready and SCCM Integrated. Has powershell cmdlets for automation.
  • + Integration with App Volumes and Horizon. Next to App-V, it's the most widely used product.
  • + Has an excellent file, registry, directory and URL redirection feature, making it perfect for those migrating from e.g. Citrix XenApp streaming who relied on similair functionality.
  • + Unique feature set and packaging tool makes it great for those incompatible legacy apps.
  • + You can isolate the network stack
  • + No requirement for agent install on client machines. Transparent flat file package format.
Cons
  • - Doesn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t have a very large online community outside of Software2\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s recipe library which is not free.
  • - Though packaging is pretty streamlined and relatively simple with a series of text files, making updates to large applications requires recompiling the .exe which can take a long time. Development was pretty slow and this was the last product to support 64-bit applications. Newer versions of Office or new Windows Operating System have limited functionality.
  • - While a lot is possible with the product, some things require some manual steps. Limited scripting framework. Packaging discipline can become complex for richer integration such as shell extentions. Citrix and SCCM integration isn't streamlined. Lacks a large online community.
