Hi,

Found this on the MS Softgrid page, well it look look like the Softgrid can communicate with COM. is there any limits for a SG app to communicat with OS components...??


COM/IPC: SystemGuard enables programs to redirect communication requests through services such as COM/ DCOM or IPC methods such as Named Pipes. This alleviates versioning problems and other conflicts at these interfaces.

I am confused how much the SG app can communicate between two SG bubbles

From MS
Side-by-Side Virtualization:
Each SoftGrid-enabled application brings down its own set of configurations and can run side-by-side without the settings conflicting with each other — or the host operating system. Despite this separation, inter-application communication with other SoftGrid applications and those installed locally is preserved, allowing for cut and paste, OLE, and all other standard operations.


Is there any one with live experionce here...

One bubble cannot talk to another-- only within the bubble or with locally installed applications. If you wanted two virtualized applications to communicate via COM/DCOM/Named pipes, you would need to bundle them in the same "virtual package" (bubble).

So if you virtualize Word and you virtualize Excel separately, you could not drag excel objects into Word.
If you virtualize word and Excel together, you can drag Excel objects into Word.

On that note-- you would not want to virtualize office if you have any plug-ins. In this case, you would install office physically and then you could virtualize the plug-ins individually to sit on top. Otherwise say if you had a two plug-ins for excel, and excel was virtualized-- you would either need to include the two plug-ins in your virtual package for Excel, or make two Excel packages (one for each plug in).

Hopefully the examples help; t is understandably confusing.

I would add that the bubbles have write access to the clipboard so you could copy/paste between them.

Apparently bubble to bubble communication is coming in 2009 sometime. ;)

Bob, were you at the partner conference in Seattle?

@#$#@$!!!!

I was hoping this feature would come out this year. I know that this might be difficult to do but this is my #1 feature I would like to see.

No I didn't make the conference but I'm working with multiple customers that are implementing/evaluating SVS and SG so I've got my hands in it pretty deep right now. I will be at the Microsoft Management Summit later this month (speaking on the topic of troubleshooting Windows Installer).

I'll be down for MMS but I still have not planned which sessions I'll be at. It will be my first and since I've wanted to go to this for years I'm all excited!
