It should just work.  Run the wizard, scan files, install flash 10, scan files again, build package.
Are there any specific problems you are having?

It does if I use the internet explorer that it packaged a long with it. What I need to be able to do is tie it into another virtualized app. So can you tell me how to take my the virtualized executable and include it with another?

Are you trying to create a stand-alone flash player,
or a virtualized flash player that you can use in a virtualized IE?

If you mean in IE, then you need to include as "AppLinks" to tie the thinapps to each other.

So if I have a package.ini that looks like this:

[KnowladgentStudent.exe]
ReadOnlyData=bin\Package.ro.tvr
Source=%SystemSystem%\wscript.exe
Icon=%ProgramFilesDir%\Knowlagent Student Icon 3.0\KBLogo.ico
CommandLine="%SystemSystem%\wscript.exe" "%ProgramFilesDir%\Knowlagent Student Icon 3.0\KnowlagentStudent.vbs"

and I need to include flash what do I need to do?

Assuming you wrapped Flash in thinappFlash.exe
[KnowladgentStudent.exe]
ReadOnlyData=bin\Package.ro.tvr
Source=%SystemSystem%\wscript.exe
Icon=%ProgramFilesDir%\Knowlagent Student Icon 3.0\KBLogo.ico
CommandLine="%SystemSystem%\wscript.exe" "%ProgramFilesDir%\Knowlagent Student Icon 3.0\KnowlagentStudent.vbs"
OptionalAppLinks="thinappFlash.exe"

Open in new window

Here is what I have in my package.ini for flash

[FlashUtil10a.exe]
ReadOnlyData=bin\Package.ro.tvr
Source=%Desktop%\Flash\FlashUtil10a.exe

[iexplore.exe]
Shortcut=FlashUtil10a.exe
Source=%ProgramFilesDir%\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
FileTypes=.mfp

Once built in my BIN folder I have FlashUtil10a.exe and iexplore.exe.  If I launch IEXPLORE I CAN view flash content. If I launch the FlashUtil10A this just launches a virtualized version of the flash installer.

So I guess I am getting confused as to how adding OptionalAppLinks="FlashUtil10a.exe" to my package.ini will help since that package is just the installer.

The AppLink will add all the files from the included package into the virtual environment of the host.
Therefore, if you execute Internet Explorer in KnowladgentStudent.exe, you should be able to view flash movies in IE.

[KnowladgentStudent.exe]
ReadOnlyData=bin\Package.ro.tvr
Source=%SystemSystem%\wscript.exe
Icon=%ProgramFilesDir%\Knowlagent Student Icon 3.0\KBLogo.ico
CommandLine="%SystemSystem%\wscript.exe" "%ProgramFilesDir%\Knowlagent Student Icon 3.0\KnowlagentStudent.vbs"
OptionalAppLinks="FlashUtil10a.exe"

Put FlashUtil10a.exe in same folder as KnowladgentStudent.exe.
KnowladgentStudent.exe should now have access to Flash player.
