Dear Experts:
We have wyse terminal loaded with Citrix XenApp.
We would like to standardize on VMWare ThinApp platform.
Can we leverage our existing Wyse terminal on VMWare ThinApp platform?
Any suggestions and implementation procedure?
Thanks,
Charlie

VMware ThinApp is an application virtualisation package.

Accelerate application deployment and simplify application migration with agentless application virtualization. With VMware ThinApp, applications are packaged into single executables that run completely isolated from each other and the operating system for conflict-free execution on end-point devices. Application packages can be deployed to different Windows platforms, eliminating costly recoding and regression testing so you can easily migrate existing applications to Windows 7.

You will be able to use VMware ThinApp, or do you mean replace Citrix XenApp with VMware View, VMware's VDI platform.

VMware View

If you want to use your existing devices with VMware View, you need to Check the VMware HCL (Hardware Compatability Lists) here

to see if you current Wyse models are compatible.

We are using the VMWare ESX v4.
Is it compatible with the latest version of ThinApp?
Or we need to upgrade to VMWare ESXi V5 first.

Thanks

ThinApp is compatible with the virtual machines, it will work with VMware ESX v4, no need to upgrade for it.
