You can assign a particular ThinApp application to one or more pools.

If you assign a ThinApp application to a linked-clone pool and later refresh, recompose, or rebalance the pool, View Administrator reinstalls the application for you. You do not have to manually reinstall the application.

Scan an application repository and add selected ThinApp applications to View Administrator. See Add ThinApp Applications to View Administrator.


Select Inventory > ThinApps and select the ThinApp application.


From the Add Assignment drop-down menu, select Pools.

The pools that the ThinApp application is not already assigned to appear in the table.



Find a specific pool

Type the name of the pool in the Find text box and click Find.

Find all of the pools that follow the same naming convention

Type a partial pool name in the Find text box and click Find.


Select the pools that you want to assign the ThinApp application to and click Add.

You can press Ctrl+click or Shift+click to select multiple pools.


Select an installation type and click OK.




Installs a shortcut to the application on the desktop. The shortcut points to the application on the network share that hosts the repository. Users must have access to the network share to run the application.


Installs the full application on the local file system.

Some ThinApp applications do not support both installation types. How the application package was created determines which installation types are available.

View Administrator begins installing the ThinApp application the first time a user logs in to a desktop in the pool. After the installation is finished, the application is available to all of the users of the desktop.
