I never tried to capture Flash alone but I remember capturing it as a addon for Flash and it worked. What do you mean exactly when it is not working? Crash, Nothing pappens or any thing else?
Are you trying to thinapp flash as a standalone application, or as a plugin for a browser.
What I did to thinapp a flash plugin for firefox:
Makes a Firefox Capture
Then without rolling back to snapshot I do a new capture
Install Flash plugin for Firefox
Verify it's working
Makes Flashplugin Capture
Then you need to enable optional (or required) plugins for the firefox capture. We just add the optional "plugins" folder and then drop the built flashplugin.exe into the thinapped firefox's plugin folder.
I don't think you can virtualize/thinapp Flash for locally/native installed browsers.
I appreciate the original post was a little while back now, thread still showing as not being answered
Does the following help (see blog for link to YouTube video)?
If this demo helps, please keep an eye on the blog and YouTube channel - more content and ThinApp-ing ideas coming soon - oh and don't forget a 'correct' or 'helpful' marker on the community thread
Go to the Adobe site - register as a user.
You can register to get re-distributable versions of Flash. One exe for IE, one for other browsers.
Start the thin app package capture - run the exe - finish the capture. Job done.
I captured flash like this and added it to IE as a required application after renaming the entry point to a .dat file.
Let me know if you want more detail.
I am trying to use the AppLink utility...not having much luck!
Question regarding your earlier posted steps:
After installing Firefox and running the Post Scan do you then build it or save Project somewhere and start a new capture for Flash and after that, build them together or are they two seperate builds within the one snapshot?
If you build firefox or just save it for later is irrelevant I think... but you must start a new prescan before installing flash.

That should be a bit clearer I think? Not sure what you missed, maybe the install path? Note that default behaviour of MSI install directory is to install in "user" space unless user has admin rights so we can't be certain where it installs, that's why we "force" our apps to C:\ThinApps.
We also use one folder per app (except the plugins) because when we uninstall an app it removes the shortcuts and settings for all exe files it finds in the same folder...
