We keep innovating to help you to keep responding to changing business requirements, enhancing user productivity, and staying ahead of the competition.
We want to make sure that you get the most out of your investment in Liquit. Over the past few months, we have released some important, new features; Are you taking advantage of them yet? These are some of the major features you do not want to miss:

MSIX app attach support

Configure the MSIX app attach feature right from Liquit Workspace.

The following actions are added to support MSIX app attach:

  • Attach Virtual Disk
  • Detach Virtual Disk

The existing “Install Windows App” action is improved by adding the “Stage in-place” option, which allows installing Windows Apps (MSIX) in-place, without installing the necessary files within Windows.

Liquit Workspace allows you to use MSIX app attach on demand, this means Virtual Disks will be attached when the affected application is started.

Additionally Liquit Setup Commander allows you to quickly create MSIX packages and MSIX app attach disks.

Microsoft WVD ARM (Preview)

Support for ARM-based Windows Virtual Desktops, allowing to import both ARM and non-ARM based resources.
