Many times you have to find out what processes are actually running within the virtual environment. I’ve already posted one method found here: (http://blogs.vmware.com/thinapp/2011/04/whats-keeping-my-sandbox-locked.html) but now it’s time for yet one more method.
This method uses an Entry Point running regedit.exe within the virtual environment. When you navigate the virtual registry you can see a HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Thinstall\ProcessList key. Looking in this key you’ll see the list of processes correctly running.
