If you want to automate processes around ThinApp or you just want to extend the functionality of the product, you can use the integrated ThinApp SDK. Tim wrote a great article about that on hi blog HorizonFlux.com. If you’re interested please visit his website.
Most of the times when I talk to our customers they want some functionality in ThinApp which it doesn’t offered out of the box. For example:
Allow to run a virtualized application only until a specific date.
Update a configuration file every time the applications is launched.
Allow an application only to be executed when user is inside the corporate office.
Messure the usage of an application.
Enforce licensing restriction.
And so on…
While such functionality, as already said, isn’t offered by ThinApp out of the box there is something else much more powerful available.
