I got an app for Windows 7, and after the installation process I could see that the app, ThinApp was successfully installed.

At present when I try to login by providing the username and password so that I can connect to a DB server I get this error message:

"Error Message-76, File Not Found:...\DLL\InstallationUtil.dll"

As soon as I encountered this message, I got a copy of the "InstallationUtil.dll" from another machine where it was working and pasted in the VMwareThinApp essential location, but in spite of this I have the same problem.

Any advice will be appreciated.
