The ThinApp Factory Fling has successfully led to quality feedback and constructive guidance on the next step for this technology.
We are removing ThinApp Factory from the Flings site and releasing it as an open-sourced VMware offering on Github. It will be freely available without any encumbrances, where customers and partners can extend or utilize the tool in preparing their own packaging automation appliances.
ThinApp Factory is packaged as a virtual appliance with the following configuration: vCPUs: 2 vRam: 2 GB vHDD: 500 MB
- Internet Explorer 8 or 9
- Firefox 3.5 or later
- Chrome 11.0 or later (not supported with use of VRMC and manual capture)
- Safari 5 or later
There are two deployment options for ThinApp Factory
- OVF: can be deployed directly to vCenter server 4.x, 5.0, downloadable above in appfactory-appliance.zip
- Installer: can be run from a Windows OS to assist with deploying the Virtual Appliance to vSphere 4.1 U1 or Workstation 8.0, downloadable above in ThinApp-Factory-Setup-Full
Note: The VRMC is also included as a download for your convenience. This is used by ThinApp Factory in the local browser to display when using the manual capture method.
Once the virtual appliance has been deployed and powered on, you can access the ThinApp Factory from a web browser by entering the IP address of the virtual appliance. See ThinApp Factory Installation Guide.
