AppBot is a tool created to transform Citrix Streaming Applications to Microsoft App-V 5. Additionally, the application creates Microsoft installer files for every application. This way, you can decide if you would like to install an MSI for your old Streaming Profiler application (sccm, matrix 42 or so) or an App-V 5 package.

The originally installed platform can be transformed as well. For example, a Streaming Profiler application of Windows Server 2003 may be adapted to Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012. If you select Windows XP and Server 2003 in the Streaming Profiler, the complete file system as well as all registry keys and shortcuts are rewritten. App-V is able to find every file and DLL in its new location. Every installation is redirected to “\%programFiles\NICK-IT\<Applicationname>” per default. You may change these settings to “<YOURCOMPANYNAME>\<Applicationname>”.

 The development of this version is completed and successfully tested with Streaming Profiler 6.0 (older versions might not function correctly).
