Have you ever wondered if you could get a private-use version of ZENworks Application Virtualization. The answer is yes.
You can purchase a single license from online distributors like CDW. The list price at CDW is $47.99, and this gives you the license plus 1 Year Standard Maintenance, for one user, one instance. You may find different pricing from different distributors, so shop around and let us know what you find.
Using it at home is actually a pretty cool idea, since ZAV makes it so easy for you to carry your favorite applications around on a thumb drive. This would be useful for anyone who regularly uses computers away from home, and can't always count on finding their apps installed on them.
(NOTE: The Knowledgebase doesn't contain the actual virtualized apps, because of licensing restrictions. But it does contain tips, tricks, knowledge, and results of virtualizing specific applications with ZENworks Application Virtualization. It functions like a database of successfully virtualized apps and how they were configured, so you can understand the best way to build your own.)
With a PowerPoint Viewer virtualized on your thumb drive, you don't have to worry about finding that app when you need it. If you encounter a PC that doesn't have PowerPoint installed on it and you want to use that PC for a presentation, there's no install necessary – PowerPoint is ready for use. Just pop in your thumb drive, launch the viewer virtual app, load up your presentation, and you're ready to roll.
Check both the Knowledgebase, and the Application Compatibility List to find applications that are known to virtualize well.
