You use Install Capture to import desktop applications for which an MSI, SFT, or App-V file is not available. Install Capture installs the application within a virtual machine and creates an MSI file that is then imported into the AppDNA software. This requires the use of a virtual machine based on one of the following desktop virtualization technologies:
The capture process can create App-V sequences instead of (or as well as) MSI files for importing into the AppDNA software. This requires additional software, called the App-V Sequencer, which is not provided with the AppDNA software. For more information, see Install Capture.
Supported Install Capture platforms:
