I'm trying to virtualize a program called Scratch Scratch | Home | imagine, program, share. As an installed program, it runs fine. But when I virtualize it, I get this error message :

The application has encountered an error : Catastrophic failure


Additional information:

ERROR: 0x8000FFFF, Unexpected path:: \

ERROR: 0x8000FFFF, In call: _folderMapper.MakeNtPath(_strCurrentDirectory,sNtC urrentDirectory)

ERROR: 0x8000FFFF, In call: _PrepareProcessEnvironment()

ERROR: 0x8000FFFF, In call: g_vm.EssentialInit(hEntry,hBootstrapFileMapping, cbFileSize, cbOffsetPayload, pbProcessBlock, pbApplicationBlock)

I am using a clean install of Windows XP in a Sun Virtual Box virtual machine. I can virtualize it using ThinApp, but since we do not have a license I can only do so with an evaluation version.

Can anyone shed any light on what I could try?
