VMware View 5.1: VM HW 8? Dual Monitors?

If you are using VMware View and dual displays, DO NOT upgrade your Virtual Machine hardware to Version 8!  There are major graphics issues with this version.  The biggest issues are seen when moving windows between displays.  And the performance was AWFUL.

Already upgraded to HW 8 like I did?  VMware’s KB article provides a work around by editing the VMX file of the VM (or parent VM) in question:  Poor performance when moving windows between multiple displays in View 5.0 session  VMware Support says that they are working on a patch and there is no ETA.

This issue is limited to this configuration:

  • Windows 7 View virtual machines (both 32bit and 64bit)
  • Virtual machine hardware version 8
  • View Agent 5.0 or higher
  • Client desktop utilizing multiple displays
