Running multiple virtual application management solutions and Configuration Manager 2007 is not supported. You should prepare your current virtual application management environment for use with Configuration Manager 2007. The following checklist includes the basic steps necessary for migrating from existing Microsoft Application Virtualization platform installations. After you have enabled the Configuration Manager 2007 site for running virtual application packages, you should deploy virtual applications only by using Configuration Manager 2007.

The information in this topic applies only to Configuration Manager 2007 R2 and Configuration Manager 2007 R3.

Step Reference

You must install the correct version of the Microsoft Application Virtualization Desktop Client on all target computers that will run virtual application packages.

How to Install the Microsoft Application Virtualization Client

You must enable the Configuration Manager 2007 advertised programs client agent to run virtual application packages. When you enable this setting, all virtual application packages must be run using Configuration Manager 2007.

How to Configure the Advertised Programs Client Agent for Running Virtual Applications

When you enable the advertised programs client agent to run virtual application packages, all existing virtual applications not deployed using Configuration Manager 2007 are removed from target computers. You must import the virtual applications into Configuration Manager 2007 and advertise the virtual application packages for Configuration Manager 2007 clients to run them.
