Great technical article on how to run Visio and Project as ThinApp application next to local installed Microsoft Office 2010.
While many are virtualizing Microsoft Office 2010 during a Proof Of Concept (POC) most companies decide to install Microsoft Office natively rather than virtualizing it. Both packaging method are valid but many times it’s easier and more efficient to have Office locally installed. That said, virtualizing Microsoft Visio and Project is a whole different ballgame. Virtualizing Visio/Project makes very much sense in many designs. There are quite a few KB articles and blog posts out there covering Office 2010 and it’s components. But so far I’ve yet to see a complete list of what is needed in order to build a Visio/Project package and have it coexist and to a certain degree integrate with native Office. So I started to collect all data I found on Internet. I ended up adding a couple thinks myself as well.
Very cool work by Joshua Townsend who put together a Microsoft Visio Stencil for VMware View. The set has 184 shapes today. Well done! You can download the stencil following the Link to Joshua’s blog post at the end of this article.
