Hello everyone.

I'm evaluating a trial version of VMWare ThinApp... I've been reading up on the documentation but I'm still confused on how to make desktop / start menu shortcuts appear for my virtualized applications. I'm able to click on the .exe and the app starts up but I want the shortcuts to appear in the start menu WITHOUT creating them myself.

Is there a way to package the shortcuts before I build the app so they can appear?

Thank you.

You have to trigger the shortcuts using thinreg.exe, either drop the ThinApp packaged exe on top of the thinreg.exe or if using a logon script you can have thinreg.exe scan your packages and configure the client accordingly. Here is a quick reference:
