Using vSphere Client Version 4.1.0
Build 345043
VMware ESXi Version 4.1.0
Build 348481

We have set-up a number of VM's and for soms strange reason it will not load up in dual screen mode.

Within the Video card setting changed this to auto detect, but to no avail.
Attempting to access these VM's via RDP version 7.1 and selecting under the display tab, use all my monitors, but to no avail.

Any ideas
