Alchemy: Cloudhouse Application Compatibility Packaging
Alchemy has been helping enterprises for over a decade remove their reliance on unsupported Windows platforms. On premise. On desktop. In the cloud. It’s the sustainable way to easily modernize your apps and fix the unfixable.
Alchemy: Cloudhouse application compatibility packaging solution deploys business-critical legacy applications onto the latest platforms from Microsoft and Citrix
Alchemy provides compatibility for Windows 10 and Server 2016 and 2019 platforms, so that 32-bit business applications that can only run on Windows XP, 7, and 8 and Server 2000, 2003, 2008 and 2008 R2 will be compatible with the modern platforms.
Unlike application virtualization or layering solutions, which provide packaging as a means of application-to-application isolation or deployment, Alchemy abstracts applications from the underlying platform, isolates their run times and provides compatibility for 64-bit desktop, server operating systems, Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Office plug-ins. Alchemy leaves no app behind while quickly and easily modernizes your apps. It’s like magic.GET IN TOUCH

1. OLD SYSTEM
Move your app from unsupported and unsecure operating systems including
2. ALCHEMY COMPATIBILITY PACKAGING
Creates Compatibility Packages for applications using install capture and runtime analysis.
Redirections are applied to the application’s file and registry to enable them to run on Windows 10 and Server 2016 and 2019.
By default, Alchemy isolates the runtimes included in a package, so that only the packaged application uses it, and it will not conflict with versions used by other applications on the server or desktop.
Application to operating system compatibility enables 32-Bit Windows apps written for Windows XP, 7, 8 Server 2003, 2008 and 2008 R2 to run on Windows 10 and Server 2016 and 2019.
Packages are managed and deployed with your existing management tools and processes, so you don’t have to invest in training, or infrastructure changes.
3. NEW SYSTEM
Launch your app on the latest and supported operating system as though they’re installed natively so that users can start their application through the Start Menu, shortcuts and file type associations.

Alchemy makes 32-Bit Windows apps for Windows XP, 7 and 8, Server 2003, 2008 and 2008 R2 run on Windows 10 and Server 2016, 2019. Redirections can be applied to file, registry, network (IP addresses and ports), and processes (mutexes and semaphores) enabling desktop apps to run in multi user environments like Citrix Virtual Apps.
With Alchemy apps can be packaged with all their dependencies, including outdated run times or versions that conflict and safely run alongside other applications. Isolation for runtimes ensures they aren’t used by other server or desktop applications.
Applications don’t need to be packaged together and run in the same Package to work together. Full support for inbound integrations from locally installed applications and Microsoft Office Plugins.
Makes applications from unsupported versions of Internet Explorer run in Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 10. Fully manages your browser application without affecting user experience, redirects deprecated APIs, configures required browser and site security settings, and manages Enterprise and Compatibility mode settings.
Containers provide support for “Evergreen IT” and Windows servicing allowing business applications to work with Windows when new features and hot fixes are released.
Compatibility Containers can easily be moved to hybrid and pure cloud with a single Package for all deployment types including hybrid. Platform and cloud agnostic to avoid vendor lock-in. Certified for Microsoft Azure with full support for Windows operating systems running in Citrix Cloud, AWS, Azure and all other popular public clouds.
Compatibility Packages are managed and deployed with your existing management tools and processes so no need for training or infrastructure changes. Can be deployed through popular tools such as Microsoft Active Directory, Group Policy, System Center Configuration Manager, Microsoft InTune, Citrix EndPoint Management, Windows Store for Business, and scripts.
Packages include the required user mode runtime, eliminating the need to pre-install players or client-side software. Applications work as though they’re installed natively – with shortcuts and file type associations - users don’t have to change how they work.
Auto Packager streamlines application packaging with install capture and run time analysis. The process can be fully automated by integrating into application analysis tools like AppDNA. Applications need only be packaged once for all Windows operating systems.
Makes applying application and configuration changes faster and easier with rapid container editing and instant updates and changes without Container recompilation. Merges application updates, for service packs and version updates into the Package by applying a new snapshot.
Understand application usage patterns and see usage data for individual users on each OS, including when and how often they use your essential applications. Access usage and deployment through your own reporting systems.
