Microsoft has now made available a 4.5 beta release that adds more language support for Application Virtualization. It lets someone run an English version of Application Virtualization on a non-English operating system, said Winni Verhoef, senior product manager for Windows product management, who spoke on the sidelines of IT Forum, Microsoft's European customer event running this week in Barcelona.
Microsoft has put Application Virtualization in a package of software called the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP). When it was introduced in January, the package contained only Application Virtualization. In July, Microsoft stuck in three other components: Advanced Group Policy Management, the Diagnostic and Recovery Toolset and System Center Desktop Error Monitoring.
