    hi,
    it's possible, with vmware fusion, to have a dock launch icon for a windows application?

    I remember that I've done a similar thing with Parallels, though I'm not 100% sure.

    The dock icon will launch the associated VM, if not already running, and run the program.

    Why not have Vmware running in Coherence and then use the Application menu at the top of the screen?

    You'll get a dock icon for every windows program running when VMWare is in Unity mode. At that point, you can right-click the relevant icon you want to keep and select "Keep in Dock".
