How to hide the license popup in VMware ThinApp

Posted on Posted in VMWare

When using ThinApp to virtualize applications, it is possible to modify the configuration in the packaging phase or afterwards, using the Package.INI file.
The Package.INI file contains, for example, all the shortcuts and the Isolation mode.

What’s not in the documentation is that there is an option to disable or hide the license popup when the virtualized application is started.

To disable the popup follow the next steps:

Open the Package.INI file from the root folder or during the packaging phase
Under [BuildOptions] add the following section:
.ShowSB=0
Capture
Build the application from the packaging wizard or by starting Build.bat
Test if the popup disappeared.

Hiding the license popup is tested on version 4 and version 5 of VMware ThinApp.
