Application Virtualization

Part of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP), Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) enables you to make applications available to end users without installing the applications directly on end user computers. App-V transforms applications into centrally managed services that are never installed and don't conflict with other applications.
