View Client 4.5.0 or earlier fails to connect to View Connection Server if Internet Explorer 9 Beta or Windows 7 SP1 Beta is installed on the same client system (1028650)

  • 10 Ratings



These solutions are available:

Solution 1

Download and install View Client 4.5 build 353760 or View Client 4.6 to resolve the issue. You can download these clients from the VMware Download Center.

Solution 2

Package View Client as a ThinApp package on a machine that does not have Internet Explorer 9 Beta or Windows 7 SP1 Beta installed and distribute the package. The wininet.dll file that is packaged from the machine allows View Client to work correctly

Solution 3

Run the Internet Explorer 9 or Windows 7 SP1 application in compatibility mode. 
  1. To use Windows 7 SP1 Beta, run under compatibility mode of Windows 7.
  2. To use Internet Explorer 9 Beta on a Windows 7 SP0 system, run under compatibility mode of Windows Vista Service Pack 2.

    Note: If you use compatibility mode, certificate authentication to View Connection Server does not work.

Solution 4

If possible, avoid installing Internet Explorer 9 Beta on the same Windows system as View Client 4.5.0 or earlier. If Internet Explorer 9 Beta is already installed, you can uninstall the Internet Explorer 9 Beta software. Follow the instructions in the Microsoft Answers forum How do I uninstall Internet Explorer 9 Beta?.
