VMware Horizon View & Windows 10 (VDI)

Hi all My last project was based on VMware Horizon View & Windows 10. So there are a lot of guides out there (see link list at the end). I did some other changes that helped me: Compatibility Be sure, that your actual Win10 Build is supported by Horizon View: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2149393   Tools Use the VMware OS Optimization Tool https://labs.vmware.com/flings/vmware-os-optimization-tool   Settings DelayedDesktopSwitchTimeout To configure the value of the DelayedDesktopSwitchTimeout registry entry, follow these steps: Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER. Locate the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System Double-click the DelayedDesktopSwitchTimeout registry entry.

VMware View Agent for VMs not in vCenter

Hi all Requireent If you have to install the VMware Horizon View Agent outside a VM (or a phyiscal PC) not managed in vCenter you have to use the following command:   Soution in VMware Agent VMware-viewagent-Y.Y.Y0-xxxxxx.exe /v”VDM_VC_MANAGED_AGENT=0″ If you then create a manual desktop pool in the VMware Horizon View Admin you will see the desktop listed in “Other” sources. Hope this helps other out there in the jungle 🙂
