Hi,

I get an error when importing OVF 'Line 117: Unsupported element 'Property'.

Attached a screenshot.

Have met the prerequisites:

VMW 8.0 later
2 CPUs
Shared VMs must be configured using Port 443 (I am using 444)
The Workstation Server service must be started

If I run ThinApp Factory installer instead

I can't get past the login screen to the Workstation server login (using my local admin account details)

Please see below log from appfactory, have also attached screenshot.

One thing I see is the use of port 444.  It really does require 443. There are hard coded settings in the fling for use in Workstation which dictates the use of TCP 443.

For more info, see the VMware ThinApp blog article discussing Troubleshooting tips when using the ThinApp Factory fling in VMware Workstation.
