This topic details the new features and fixes for the AppAcceleratorV, Cloudhouse Auto Packager, Container Editor, and the Cloudhouse Compatibility Containers™ they create released throughout May 2019.

Any components that have changed this month are version 4.6.1905.nnnn

  • The /defaultlog option is no longer displayed on the /help screen as it is no longer valid.

Auto Packager

New Features

Auto Packager 4.6.1905.24143 (released 17th May 2019)

  • Based on our experience of issues in virtualising the Splwow64.exe process (which is used to translate the driver model of a 64-bit operating system and a 32-bit program), this process is now automatically excluded in any Containers built by this and later versions of the Auto Packager.

Cloudhouse Containers

New Features

4.6.1905.1312 (released 17th May 2019)

  • Deploying a Container refreshes the windows icon cache.

4.6.1905.1009 (released 17th May 2019)

Discovery Tool

New Features

1.0.1905.73 (released 17th May 2019)

  • The stack trace is no longer shown in the console if the tool crashes.


Advisory 1

The Container Editor should only be used to update applications, file, and registry redirections on the same architecture the original Container is created on. For example, if the Container was created on an x86 machine, then the Container Editor must be run on an x86 machine to update the Container.

Anti-Virus Advisory

Remove any Runx.exe files (where “x” is a number), from the Container before deploying it. These files are only required if you need to create Universal Windows Platform (UWP)/MSIX packages of the Container. Anti-virus and malware scanners may flag these files as malware as they are unsigned and designed to run other executables.
