VMware Thinapp Problem - no file types associated


Sometimes there is a problem when capturing a VMware Thinapp regarding the association of file-types.

If a Thinapp has missing filetypes check the file "package.ini" in the Capture-folder. The associations are created with the parameter "FileTypes". Have a look at the right entry-point( [main-exe-file.exe] ) and check if the paramter "FileTypes" is correct.

Here is an example for 7-Zip (file associations must be listed without empty space ( .filetype1.filetype2 ... )

[7-Zip File Manager.exe]
....
FileTypes=.001.7z.arj.bz2.bzip2.cab.cpio.deb.dmg.fat.gz.gzip.hfs.
iso.lha.lzh.lzma.ntfs.rar.rpm.squashfs.swm.tar.taz.tbz.tbz2.tgz.tpz.txz.vhd.wim.xar.xz.z.zip
....

If you change/add this parameter re-run "build.bat" in the capture-folder to apply changes.
