I'm totally new to this site and packaging in general so please bare with me :-)

I'm trying to virtualize Stickies 7.1 by Zhorn Software in XP SP3 (running in a VMware Workstation VM)
I run a global capture, deactivate and export the layer as an .xpf-file.
I then revert my virtual machine and import my new layer, everything works fine so far.
However when I activate the layer the application doesn't start, it has created a installation directory so I can doubleclick stickies.exe to run the application. When I do that it runs just fine with the settings I've chosen when a did the capture.

My question is, how do I make the .exe run automatically when activating the layer?

Assuming by terminology that you are using a Symantec product.

Activating a layer I would assume simply means making the product available - I don't know if their product has a scripting possibility to perform actions when activating a layer - but it could be worth investigating

Open the package in SVS Admin and add the exe in the autorun tab (can't recall the exact name from memory)
