Vmware session starts slowly

jhieb asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I am running vmware server 2.0 on Windows Server 2008. It works fine and most of my machines can run vmware sessions without any problem. I have machine that has problems.

I just installed a new computer with Windows 7 and Office 2007. It also has IE version 8 and the latest Java from Sun. The vmware tools are loaded.

I can review the VMWARE console using IE 8 just fine. But, when I go to launch a vmware remote console it might take up to 3 minutes for it to even pop up. It pops up within seconds on other computers. Is there something different about Windows 7 that I need to do so that the remote consoles popup right away?

What can I do to speed this up?
