    We have Wyse R50le running Release 11 SP1 Build 11.1.070 deployed via FTP. We are updating our environment to VMware View 5.2.

    We would like to replace the View Client rpm in the base addons with a more up to date version and push to clients if possible.

    Any procedural help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Just copy the newer addon to the addons folder on your FTP server, add the full name of the addon to the directory file and add NewAddons=your_addon_name
    to the wlx.ini.

    Done

    Kind of a minor issue, but, is anyone aware of a way to change the appearance of the View client? Basically I am looking to:

    1. Get rid of the VMware Horizon View Client window that sits behind the Connect to Server login screen. There’s no real reason I’d want my client to have that appear and sit there. Is it causing an issue? No, it’s just kinda there and I don’t need/want it to be.

    2. Center position the Connect to Server login. When it first comes up, on a 19″ LCD, it’s centered within the VMware Horizon View Client window. I want the login centered at the direct center of the screen itself.

    Again, these are extremely minor, but, if someone was aware of some tweaks within the INI I would utilize, I’d appreciate it.

    We’re utilizing the. 2.0 view client on the D50D and R50LE, both on the most recent firmware and utilized mixed mode.

    Sorry for the delayed response. We had some server issues. I’ll give it a try and post back with the results.

    Appreciate your time.

    epa80, we notice the same issues with our R50LEs. Would be interested in any tweaks you may find.

    A million apologies CG. I found the following after asking the question. My GoogleFu had failed me.

    Thanks CG. It worked like a champ.

    Found that for View Client 2.0 two of the three steps got it going.

    1. copy the rpm to the addons directory
    2. add the full rpm name to the directory file.

    Viola.

    Thanks again.

    Unfortunately we haven’t been able to find a solution to be able to remove the VMware Horizon View Client window that sits behind the login dialog box, or the centering of the login itself. I have a call into my Wyse rep, but, I’m not expecting much. For now we’ll probably have to live with it.
