maybe someone with VM ThinAps experience could run a review and evaluate this new freeware
can this be used fr security?
In theory same ways as VM Thinaps, only it is not its primary goal
I tried it with Buzans iMindMap. It just failed, My portable exe doesnt work
looks interesting for lack of a better word
I tried it last night and I'm sorry that I wasted the 15 min. I opened it up and it didn't have any options to install. It automatically unpacked and then nothing. It didn't bring up the program or ask me to reboot. I opened it via programs. The program started and it had two buttons on the left side. No welcome screen, no directions. Hmmm. I hit virtualize and waited for it to make an image. It kept going for about 10 min. There was no indicator how long it was taking or when it was going to be done. I cancelled it out and gave up. I'm sure if I read the help file it might have helped. Most programs today at least walk you through the basics at first. Any other experiances?
See Ashraf review (dotTech) for better details and steps to create virtual application.
A few specialized uses aside, that review convinced me enough that it's not worth going through all that.
Cameyo was updated a few days ago - http://www.cameyo.com/
Seems to offer more options and user control now. Tested on several apps so far with mostly success. No luck yet though with "Live Messenger"
Could you test it against some fast starting browsers like Iron or Opera? I am interested in what the start up delay is with Cameyo (please state your CPU for reference).
Did manage to run Iron in a (portable) VM. Only user prefrrence changes are omitted (at least I could not get it to work). I am surprised on how fast it starts.
I'm still tryin to get my head around this app Despite using different settings, a folder keeps getting written to the "appdata" area on my computer called "VSO". Any virtual app i run writes info into this folder Definitely not what i want when choosing "isolation"!
How did you get those button beside open/max/close?
Magic my friend, Magic
Files are written to AppData\VSO, and registry keys to HKCU\Software\VSO
VSO = Virtualised Software Output ?
Yes - but with the options available (settings for sandboxing, isolation), why aren't these written and contained in the applications folder itself (e.g. - it's located on a usb drive) and not written to the host machine Isn't this what isolation is all about!
There are some options in the menu when you re-edit a package. Currently de-installed, so can not give you more details.
Yes, that's what i'm talking about. I have tried different settings (have the writing done to the applications folder itself where it runs from, to a folder on a usb drive), and it still writes to the appdata folder on the host.
Beats me, you are the one who has tested it more then the rest of us
Ok then, maybe Ronjor should give me my own handle like the "link/copy/paste" guy got. Something like "Cameyo Expert"
I am in favour (raised hand)
I run this in VM and the package editor keeps crashing...
No Wonder its free it does not work. Win 7 64 bit. Tried to create several no install packages, but kept getting error messages.
No doubt, when they sort it they will start to charge.
Not a good way to market.
Yes, it still needs development but it is progressing. I'm on Vista32 and have successfully created several apps that startup and work normally. A few have completed but don't startup such as Windows Live Messenger. I'm gonna wait on creating any further apps until the next release.
In the limited testing I have done with this I was quite impressed. I did not have any issues. There are not many apps I would use it for though.
