Hi,
What is the best way to create a vmware vm appliance with my software installed on the vm?
I just installed VMware studio, but the web interface only allows you to create a vm appliance with only the OS?  If i have a running vm, could i somehow create a profile from it to create a vm appliance (ova file)?

Thanks
Jamie
