Introduction:   Lately we have been receiving significantly more calls regarding Microsoft's System Center Configuration Manager software and how this product can be used to stream virtual applications to clients. Basically the challenge we notice some of our customers are facing, is how they can benefit from a scalable, location based distribution method (like SCCM) while at the same time maintaining application manageability with RES Workspace Manager.   The challenge:   When using both the SCCM and App-V on the same workstation, and using RES Workspace Manager on top of this, things can get complicated.

The latest versions of both App-V and System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) can work together to deliver virtual applications to the user. Some minor changes needed to be made to RES PowerFuse to support the executable (VApplauncher.exe) used by this new method.
