VMWare View Problems

I am having an issue with a Windows 7 machine that is in a vmware virtual machine environment.  I can open a console for the virtual machine in question on my vSphere Client and change my display settings fine; however, when I go to a thin client and connect via my VMWare View Client I am unable to change my display settings.  It gives me an error that states “Some settings are managed by your administrator”.  I do not understand why I have access via the console, but not in the view connection.  Any Ideas?  I am trying to get my dual screen to work.

Problem solved.  The last part of the puzzle was the View Client.  Made sure it was up to date and set it for multimonitor mode.  It is working great!

I'm thinking it is because you are using RDP to connect into the machine through the View Client.  I believe ou need to set the display properties in the View client properties.

I am currently using the PCOIP protocol.  I received the following from VMWare; however, it does not work...

 - Settings tab is missing in the Display control panel of a PCoIP connected virtual machine

Still trying to figure this thing out...Windows 7 has tooo many security features.

I now have dual screen mode working; however, it is showing both screens on one monitor with a scroll bar at the bottom.  For some reason it will not push the image to the other monitor.  any Ideas?

The KB article worked as planned and the client update was needed.
