When the Advertised Programs Client Agent is enabled to advertise and run virtual application packages in Configuration Manager 2007, a policy that requests that the virtual application package components are enabled on client computers is assigned to the site. These components allow you to advertise and run virtual application packages on Configuration Manager 2007 client computers.

Note

When you enable the advertised programs client agent to run virtual application packages, all Configuration Manager 2007 client computers in the site will be configured to run virtual application packages. It is not possible to enable a single computer or collection to run virtual application packages.

Use the following procedure to enable the Advertised Programs Client Agent for running virtual application packages.
