#VDI Tip 63: House Cleaning Prior to Building your ThinApp Packages

With the On-premise Horizon Application Manager about to be released, ThinApp will continue to play a huge part in your application management. Below are some quick wins before hitting the build button.

    Stop any services that are running from the installation – Makes sure you don’t have any files locked.
    Remove the Font folder if not needed
    Remove any extra language support. Prime example is the vSphere client.
    ExcludePattern – In the package.ini file you should notice a ExcludePattern. List any file types that you know are not needed. This helps reduce files in hidden folders that you might miss.
    Example
    ExcludePattern=*.bak,*.msi
    Make sure you reboot the capture machine at least once and take a VM snapshot prior too the final capture.
    Make sure you didn’t package the application on a View Desktop – the View agent is any bad thing for the capture process.
