Create portable applications in minutes
MoleBox Virtualization Solution (VS) creates a private and secure virtual environment for your software applications, isolating them from the underlying operating system and other software installed and running on the host device.
It is achieved by placing the application and all of its elements into managed packages which form virtual file systems and virtual registries in runtime.
Virtual file system provides the application with transparent access to original files while protecting them from unauthorized use. Virtual registry allows using ActiveX components without registration and overriding existing registry values while protecting the host registry from modifications.
Create virtual environment for your software
MoleBox VS lets you convert your application into an all-sufficient stand-alone executable, containing everything needed: components, media assets, registry entries . Moleboxed environment is private and secure, which means that all packaged elements are available to your application only and are protected from any unauthorized access.
Create portable applications
Traditional software setup process frequently requires admin rights, includes installation and registration of many components, and may take significant time. Portable moleboxed applications run without installation on any computer, from any source – USB device, CD-ROM, or network drive. Moleboxed software can run without altering host device file system: it does not extract original files not creates temporary files, and can be easily and cleanly removed when necessary.
Use any components and runtimes without installation or registration
MoleBox VS allows embedding DLLs, ActiveX and .NET components, as well as VB, FoxPro, Java and other runtimes into your application. Embedded components are loaded on demand directly to the memory and are never extracted to disk. Due to virtual registry technology, you can use ActiveX components without registration, without any changes to the host PC registry.
Run from user level, without admin privileges
Moleboxed applications require neither installation no modifications to the host device registry, and run in user mode, without administrator privileges. Your end-users won’t be discouraged with security warnings or any other problems running your software.
Avoid application conflicts, DLL hell and registry rot
With MoleBox VS you can create zero-install applications which are isolated from the host device, protecting it against changes to registry and file system. This allows using multiple versions of same applications, components and runtimes at the same time without conflicts.
Manage your software distribution, simplify delivery, reduce support and testing cost
Moleboxed applications can be delivered in a single executable that runs with zero setup. MoleBox VS allows easy creation and distribution of software updates, by creating additional packages and delivering them to end-users.
MoleBox virtualization technology eliminates the need to test software on different configurations. Software developers and IT managers may package software once and deploy it to different operating systems without repackaging.
