Virtualizing the IE environment RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • You can install a local shim to the machine that directs IE executable to App-v package of IE (the package contins no files or regsitry keys.. just the "local interact allowed" and and a specific "deny local reg key" (the shim registry key that caused the redirect into the virtual IE bubble.) Without that "registry deny" in to bubble.. opening IE create a code loop that opened infinite IE bubbles... :( not good.

    Now you suite all your IE plugins into your IE bubble application.. and whalla.. full flash/pdf/etc... whenever you open IE, no matter how you open IE.

    I have not tested this yet.. but was wondering if anyone had tried something like this before?

    My other options are to either create a seperate icon for IE.. (and teach user that this is the ONLY way to get a fully functional web experience) or find a way to add the app-v client (IE package) as the default web browser..

  • Could you please explain the shim in more detail?
