Flexera Software Announces AdminStudio Support for Windows 7

AdminStudio 9.5 Release Accelerates Windows 7 and Application Virtualization Migrations With Start-to-Finish Application Readiness Toolset That Reduces Risk, Time, and Cost of Migrations

BERLIN--(Marketwire - November 10, 2009) - Flexera Software™, the leading provider of software license, entitlement management, installation, and application readiness solutions, today debuted at the Microsoft® Tech-Ed Europe conference AdminStudio® 9.5, which enables users to accelerate Microsoft Windows® 7 and application virtualization migrations with a single application readiness toolset, minimizing the risk, time and cost of migrations. This latest release of the award-winning AdminStudio enables enterprise IT departments to coordinate and manage from a single tool both Windows 7 and application virtualization preparation. While AdminStudio speeds traditional MSI preparation time by up to 70 percent, a recent benchmark study showed that AdminStudio can accelerate preparation of applications for Microsoft App-V™ up to nine times faster than native tools.

"To simplify the management and deployment of applications, many organizations are combining Windows 7 migrations with application virtualization projects, such as App-V implementations, to create an optimized desktop infrastructure," said Maureen Polte, director, product management at Flexera Software. "With analyst predictions showing that Windows 7 shipments will top 177 million units by the end of 2010, AdminStudio 9.5 provides a clearly defined, trackable, and repeatable process to enable rapid adoption of Windows 7 and Microsoft App-V, significantly cutting the time and cost associated with these efforts."

AdminStudio is a complete application readiness toolset that reduces risk, time and costs by analyzing application compatibility, remediating issues and creating applications in traditional or virtual packages. Relied on by more than 10,000 enterprises, AdminStudio delivers the complete start to finish functionality that manages hundreds of OS migrations and application virtualization projects. This latest release helps ensure Windows 7 application compatibility, repackages applications with the flexibility to support many deployment formats, hands off completed packages to Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager for distribution, manages a repeatable process, and quickly converts existing physical application packages to virtual formats.
