Known Issues for Auto Packager


Advisory

 

Cloudhouse  recommend using the Auto Packager on x86 operating systems only,  re-directions will not be created correctly for applications that  contain a mix of x64 and x86 components. Containers will be created  successfully for applications that contain only x64 components, but successful packaging on this platform requires detailed knowledge of the application prior to packaging.

New Features for Applications Anywhere


  • None.

Fixes for Applications Anywhere


  • Use the correct path when launching Applications Anywhere Monitor (AAM).
