It's been a while since I made a portable (Office 2007) Thinapp application, and since then I've uninstalled VMWare from my machine to free up space, so I'd like to know if someone already knows the answer to this before I set up everything again to try it.

I'm thinking of installing a visual style (*.msstyles, for XP) along with the application to thinapp before post-setup capture. Failing that, maybe I'll try with visual mods such as Windows Blinds. The purpose is to be able to run a portable application with a specific visual style.

So my question is:

Is it possible? (I believe it somehow is, since VirtualBox does something similar to XP Mode)

If it is, will it work on a computer with the "classic" Windows style?
If it's not, will it work with another virtualization software? (Xenocode?)
If it's not possible with *.msstyles, will it work with visual mods such as Windows Blinds?

(P.S.: Awfully tagged due to lack of relevant tags or 100+ rep to create a tag :P)

So you want to know if the Thinapp's visual style is affected by the host OS's visual style? –  Ivo Flipse Apr 1 '10 at 8:11
    
Yes, that's what normally happens, but I want to override that behaviour by telling it to virtualize the Visual Style as well. –  Camilo Martin Apr 1 '10 at 8:27
