New Features in Containers

1.0.0.450 (released 18th January 2018):

Fixes in Auto Packager

4.5.11.22939 (released 9th January 2018):

4.5.11.22993 (released 30th January 2018):

  • Failed to handle short paths 8.3 correctly in AppRegistry.xml and FileAssociations.xml, causing the application to fail to run - short paths are now converted to full paths during Container creation.

Advisory

Cloudhouse recommends 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.
