    Cameyo - Like VMware's ThinApp, but completely free

    Finally! A free application virtualization program. I haven't had a chance to try it out, but this looks like a really good alternative to ThinApp, so I thought it might be worth starting a new thread about it.

    Website / Download / Demo Video

    From their website...

    Cameyo is a free, open-architecture application virtualization product. It combines best-of-breed application virtualization technology with simplicity.

    Application virtualization technology packages entire applications into a single standalone executable, eliminating the need to install.

    While application virtualization technology has been around for years, good application virtualization products have been expensive and complex to learn. Whether you are a home user or an enterprise IT administrator, take your applications with you or deploy them easily.

    At Cameyo, we believe application virtualization should be within everyone's reach.

    Good review. It doesn't look like VMware have anything to worry about at this stage.

    Thumbs up Great tool

    We've just done total network rebuilds for a couple of primary schools we look after and we've gone almost completely down the app virtualization route using cameyo.
    Its brilliant for running all the crappy cheaply made education software. All of our workstations are now essentially 'clean' and enumerate any new virtual apps at the beginning of the users session, if the script detects any new or updated apps, it downloads them to the local machine and copies the appropriate shortcuts into the launcher.

    Makes life so much easier.

    joshd,
    I couldn't help reading your post -- I'd be very interested in hearing how we can make your life easier with regards to application updating & patching. If you can privately send me email to cameyo at cameyo.com it'd be great!
    Thanks

    Currently in pub with Ric and can't understand how this thread passed under our collective radar. Will give it a closer look tomorrow.

    I did download this and have a play with it, looks very interesting and it did work great! i'll provide further feedback once i've tested it in a few other environments i wish to see how it behaves once introduced in a test environment.

    I had a quick go and it looks okay. I wonder how well a package made on XP will work on 7 and vice versa. I assume there should not be many issues as it is "virtualised"

    Good work jin!

    I take it we'd have to rebuild the app every time we had a SIMS update though?
