VMware view client 4.6 - Can I store the user name and password?

How can I install the VMWare view client such that it stores the user name and password.  The user will NOT be the same credentials as  PC logon.
I found a place in the registry that stores the username. ([HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\Client\MRUsername])
But I have tried to add similar value for the password with no luck.


Ive tried to install as below, per couementation but that doesnt work, I get an error
'VDM_SERVER_NAME' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.


VMware-viewclient-4.6.0-366101.exe /s /v"/qb! VDM_VC_MANAGED_AGENT=0
VDM_SERVER_NAME=sxerver VDM_SERVER_USERNAME=user VDM_SERVER_PASSWORD=password"

Anyone?  Can this even be done?

Well it turns out that you have to add the reg keys as below.  The documentation says you can start view via  the command line, but this seems a tad cleaner and can be done on install.

Thanks for everyones input.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\Client]
"DesktopShortcut"="1"
"MRBroker"=""
"StartmenuShortcut"="1"
"VirtualChannelDLLs"="C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\VMware\\VMware Virtual Printing\\TPClnRDP.dll"
"Username"="username"
"Password"="password"
