I’m often asked about best practices when it comes to cleaning up the project folder. This is not a simple subject because it varies greatly depending on the application you captured.

Over the last four years I’ve been working with customers and partners on articulating and demonstrating the value of VMware ThinApp. While ThinApp does offer one of the most flexible and streamlined solutions for virtualizing Windows applications there are still times when you need to put the product knowledge and the application expert together to get the results you want. That has now occurred in written (and ebook) form with the release of the definitive guide for VMware ThinApp. The title, VMware ThinApp Essentials, much like the author, is understated as you will find the relevance of this book greatly exceeds the ‘essentials’. Yes, the author is one of our own VMware employees, but see for yourself that Peter Bjork always speaks to the reality of the customer environment and the satisfaction of well-implemented technology. Leverage Peter’s dedication to the technology, wide spectrum of application experience, and commitment to help you extract the most value out of your investment in application virtualization.
Here are the prerequisite instructions on how to make a ThinApp application. They will cover the basics for creating the package and are "as is" and contain nothing in relation to capturing any specific package. This is so you have an overview of what basic items and steps are needed in order to properly create and build ThinApp packages.
