The Applications Results pane in the Application Virtualization Client Management Console displays a list of the available applications. Users can see a list of applications for which they have been granted access privileges.

For more information about the procedures you can perform from this pane, see How to Manage Applications in the Client Management Console.

Right-click any application to display a pop-up menu that contains the following elements.

New Shortcut

This menu item displays the New Shortcut Wizard. This wizard consists of three pages:
  1. Select an icon, and specify a name for the shortcut:

    1. Change Icon—Displays a standard Microsoft Windows icon browser. Browse to and select the desired icon.

    2. Shortcut Title—Enter the name you want to give the shortcut. This field defaults to the existing name and version of the application.

  2. Determine the location of the published shortcut.

    1. Location of shortcut—Select a location by selecting one of the check boxes. The available locations are Desktop, Quick Launch Toolbar, Send to Menu, Start Menu, and Another location.

    2. Programs in the Start Menu—When you select the Start Menu check box, this field becomes active. Leave this field blank to publish the shortcut directly to the root of the Programs folder, or enter a folder name or hierarchy—for example, "My_Computer\Office Applications." Shortcuts created this way are available only for the current user.

    3. Another location and browse button—When you select the Another location check box, this field becomes active. Enter any valid location on the machine or any available Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path(shared file or directory on a network). The browse button displays a standard Windows File Open dialog box.

  3. Enter the desired command-line parameters, and then click Finish to exit the wizard.

New Association

This menu item displays the New Association Wizard. This wizard consists of two pages:
  1. Enter a file name extension, and associate the extension with a file type.

    1. Extension—Enter a file name extension. This field is blank by default.

    2. Create a new file type with this description—Select this radio button to enter a new file type description in the active field. This button is selected by default, and the active field is blank.

    3. Apply this file type to all users—Select this check box when you want this association to be global for all users. By default, this box is not selected.

    4. Link this extension with an existing file type—Select this radio button to associate the extension with an existing file type. Choose a file type from the drop-down list. When you choose this option, Next is changed to Finish.

  2. Select the application that will open files with the specified extension:

    1. Open files with the selected application—Select this radio button to open the file with an existing application. Choose an application from the drop-down list of available applications.

    2. Open file with the association described in this OSD file—Select this radio button to specify an Open Software Descriptor (OSD) file that determines the application used to open the file. Use the browse button to select an existing location, or enter a path or HTTP-formatted URL in this field.
