WYSE thin Clients and dual screens with Terminal Server

We are evaluating the WYSE Thin client to use in our Terminal Server environment. Everything works pretty well except the dual screens. The RDP client they use doesnt have an option to "USe all monitors" like the microsoft RDP client does.

Because of this when we log in we have to manually adjust and size programs on the individual screens. We've also ntoiced that display settings that normally "just work" require manual adjustment and they dont get saved.

What i mean by that is, for example, in outlook 2010 when you look at your contacts in Business Card View we can normally get 3 across. Using the WYSE terminal we have to manually resize to get it like that and it doesnt stay.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any updates to this client that will make it act more like the microsoft RDP client? We may not have any option other than to buy a thin client with windows but they are more money.

Our Terminal Servers are Windows 2008 R2 with SP1.

Thank you.

Are these the embedded Windows (XPe or 7'ish)?

If so, then the Microsoft RDS client is binary compatible - you just need to disable the write filter, install the RDS software, configure it as you want and then re-enable the write filter.

You should have access to the Wyse deployment tools or you can create customised SCCM/Altiris etc jobs to then roll a new image out to them if necessary and if it's too big a task to do this manually.

In terms of the view - is the resolution on the thin client and RDS server set high enough? Otherwise, saving window dimensions should go into a profile so that might be an unrelated error? Does it occur in a 'normal' RDS session from a desktop, say?

Its not windows. It boots in to a GUI but i think its some sort of linux flavor in the background.

Ah ok - you might be able to get a more up to date plugin from the Wyse site.

Which model is it?
