Slingshot can't launch application

Slingshot can't launch application

The customer has a Virtual Application launcher webapp configured that uses Java and want to switch to the new slingshot method. They changed the webapp to Local Application but when it runs it says it can't find the file. They are trying to drop down a .zip and then run a file that is inside the zip.
 

The Java application launcher assumed the path where the files were extracted, the slingshot does not and you have to specify the download path in front of the executable. For example, if your .zip was called my.zip and in there is my.exe then under Application Path you would put @@downloaddir@@\\my.exe

The virtual app path on the options panel would be the location where slingshot can download the .zip file to extract on the user's machine.

On Windows, the extraction location unless specified is %temp%\\<long random number/letters>
