a lot of those are registry keys, just export them and things like jaunte or portableapps launcher method will read the keys

Ritho: One last question about this method. If i decide i no linger wish to use tis setup or want a certain program installed can i export it straight into the system or would i have to reinstall it again?

eyeb: Thanks for the hint on the registry keyus i tried the method from this website http://www.techreplies.com/software-...nstall-552481/ The only problem is on certain programs i cannot find the key in the registry at all but i do still have the key they sent me in email, so im not sure if i can still use the programs

Unless the program you use has some sort of ability to "merge" the programs into the base operating system, then yes you are going to have to reinstall it. I haven't seen an application virtualization product that offers that. I have see some OS virtualization products that do. Ones like Returnil (non free), and Acronis Try and Decide (non free) can both merge changes from the virtual drive to the real deal.

All registry entries, special program services, etc. where captured in the install layer and kept the base system running clean and free. It totally prevented registry rot and other problems associated with installing and uninstalling programs. So no your idea is not silly and is totally possible, since big corporations use program virtualization all the time.
I can see an option that will hide the application from the OS when launched from SVS. In your experience While using SVS. Have you ever found left over Reg keys on your system after deactivating application from SVS?

Thanks for pointing out this really cool program

I don't know if I would have noticed. There were a few times that a few of the layers began to act strangely, such as not deactivating completely or leaving files behind. I discovered that the "filter drivers" that SVS uses conflicts once in a while with the "filter drivers" of SandboxIE. There used to be mentions of this in the SVS forums but I believe Symantec kindly sent those to the recycle bin.

I will take that back. There used to be a community site called juice.altiris.com that contained the forums and a whole bunch of community made utilities to add functionality to SVS. That site was left up for quite awhile but now is gone. I thought Symatec had just deleted it, but after some searching I found most of the content is still available, just not quite as accessible.

You can just search for "svs" at http://www.symantec.com/connect/ and find quite a lot.

Here is where a lot of the utility downloads are still available
http://www.symantec.com/connect/sear...ype%3Adownload

Here is a getting started article
http://www.symantec.com/connect/arti...-archive-files

Note: The site which was just working for me earlier today seems to be having problems down at the moment. I keep getting a Drupal error over there.

decided to give it a go today firstrly i tried SVS and i found a downside to this program, Although it made my programs portable i realised that they only work if you have svs installed, so if i wanted to take my web browser to use on another computer it would have to have SVS installed for me to use it, and if it isnt my computer they may not want me installing programs.

So i went back to the first idea Cameyo where it makes programs into a .exe executable so i can use it anywhere, Only problem is it doesnt seem to work for me, although it makes the program when i click on the .exe on my computer none of the programs i made would even open or attempt to launch, not sure if it would only launch on a computer that didnt make it. So no way to test it proply.

Finally i went to jentePe 0.3.0 the newest one, alot more confusing then the other 2 ran the package normally but after the install and test to make sure the program works when i click on build packed it says, nothing to package (well something similar to that) it has a load of options some of which arnt complete and will take a longer time to learn all the functions to try and make a portable program

I ran across VMLite a while back, but had forgotten all about it. Please let us know about your experiences with it.
