can you see the guest Start menu when vm is offline via VMware Unity mode? 

our Start menu exists even when vm is not started, so a user can start an app (which auto launches vm if not already started)

1. Please use "text" emails, not HTML emails.

3. It shows full menu from guest encapsulated in it's own custom menu on host.

4. Yes it works across all supported hosts and guests.

Not sure about "systray". Never looked at that one. Same for "quick launch".
