Solved: VMware ThinAPP Import Error

Posted at



I've captured the latest Firefox using a null VM,
but it seems that the bin/firefox.exe keeps exiting on import error,

It may be happening since I am building (and running) the package on a different OS-installation than the one that has-been captured on,

well, in that case you might need to specifically add an external-reference to a DLL file within the project.ini,
C:\\Windows\\System32\\KernelBase.dll called by ucrtbase.dll and seems to resolve it,

..just add ExternalDLLs=ucrtbase.dll.

You can also try: ExternalDLLs=kernelbase.dll;kernel32.dll;ucrtbase.dll for an additional "external reference DLL",

optionally add an improved compatibility, by adding:
ProcessExternalNameBehavior=Original
SetVirtualModuleFileNameInPeb=1
LoadDotNetFromSystem=Win7
