Application Streaming and Application Isolation

Hi

I had a query regarding the concept of Application Streaming in XenApp 5.0 on Windows 2003.

We have a couple of apps that conflict with other applications on a user's PC, so we provide them to users as a Citrix Hosted App. I have heard of Application Streaming where an application will be sent down from the XenApp server and the .exe will run on the local client.

From what I understand, this application runs in its own Application 'bubble' so can't conflict with other applications. However, at the same time, there is Application Caching so to save bandwidth when streaming the same App again.

What I don't understand is - if the Application is cached to a certain degree, then how can it run it's own Isolation bubble?

Caching allows you to use the application when when you are not connected to the network. Say I stream Excel to a client with a laptop, I can set it so that even when the client's on an airplane and doesn't have a network connection they can still continue to use the Excel application.

I'm not quite sure I understand what you are asking.

if you mean "how can citrix allow a streamed app to use one set of dlls whilst other apps on the same client machine use different versions of the same dlls" then that's where citrix (and/or microsoft/softgrid) make their money, by doing clever techy stuff :-)
