Now I like cool toys and tools to play with and a lot seem to come from login consultants and Virtualapp which are great!

However again, this tool comes from Virtualapp.net , the tool essentially allows you to look inside your SFT packages without the requirements of bringing the application into the sequencer.... or having to open the application and roam around. This is not a Microsoft Tool and therefore has no support with the product, however I find this extremely useful to use and look into my packages incase I have potentially missed something out of the build or I have just debugged the SFT application with the sysinternal tools to find a missing reg key or other problem. Its also great for exporting files, folders, registry items...

SFTExplorer

 

 

By using SFT Explorer you can, it will show all that's inside your SFT package. Files, folders, virtual registry, virtual services ... all! And you can optionally export selected content out of the package, to examine files more closely or to migrate virtual registry settings to another package by importing exported reg-file.

With Virtualized System View™, you can even simulate how that package would look like on your local machine when run with SoftGrid SystemGuard environment up, enabling new type of troubleshooting possibilities when you can clearly see what is virtualized and in what manner.

With filtering you can quickly find certain filetypes, individual files or to see what files constitute the launch-data for package (files belonging to Feature Block 1 section of file).
