QuestionThin Client Compiler ? Pin
W∴ Balboos19-Jun-12 6:28

My office has gone 100% thin client [ VMWare ], the exception being we developers. I'm not well versed in the official descriptive terms used, but it is of the type of environment where each user has an image stored on a server, initially identical, but with a fixed storage space available to them.

One problem is that a number of my applications, when moved to the TC, do not function correctly. This has various causes - different version of Windows applications which break my references or a local dedicated impact printer that required a local driver.

I'm requesting that I be given an instance that is non-volatile (i.e., I can customize by installing compilers, &etc. that won't be destroyed on the next refresh). Then I was asked the following:
  • Are there specialized compilers and/or techniques that should be used when coding for this type of TC environment?
  • Related to this is the question of a the feasibility/sense of a single copy (rather than clones in each workspace) being a possible development target?

In light of the above (bolded) questions, I'm hoping for some answers, best-practices, and references.

Thanks, in advance
