Lately I was packaging the vSphere PowerCLI and vSphere CLI with VMware ThinApp. And after I created the Thinapps they are running just fine. However the name in the pop-up bar (that popup window when you start the ThinApp) was showing something else than I had expected.
This happend because the vSphere CLI runs from a command prompt (CMD) so the ThinApp pop-up name is “Windows Command Processor” as shown below in the screenshot.
Not a big issue, but it doesn’t look nice, so a quick search in the “package.ini” didn’t show me any setting that I could change to give it the correct name. So I start to read the documentation but didn’t find anything useful either. At last I found a solution on the VMware Communities forum, where some one else posted that you need to add the following line “StatusbarDisplayName=APPLICATIONNAME” in the package.ini, just below the [appname.exe] line, as shown here in the example below.
After you rebuild the ThinApp package and start it, it will display the correct name.
Unfortuatly it’s not possible to disable the pop-up window, but at least it’s showing the correct name
