We are using Horizon View 5.2 from a number of different thin clients and desktops to connect to a W7 desktop pool. On all of them, when "multimonitor" is selected (while connecting using the RDP protocol) all monitors are used but not as expected.
The display stretches or spans across all monitors, as if View is treating them as one. From the client, I can see in the display settings that two (or three) unique monitors are found, but from View, I see only one (that has the resolution of the two or three combined). Below are the display settings on each:
Display #1: Resolution 1280 x 1024, Orientation: Landscape
Display #2: Resolution 1280 x 1024, Orientation: Landscape
Display #3: Resolution 1280 x 1024, Orientation: Landscape
Display #1: (Default Monitor) on RDPDD Channel DD, Resolution: 3840 x 1024 (this is grayed out and I cannot change it)
We've seen this article, but it didn't help in our case. http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1027899
The View Pool settings are:
Max number of monitors: 3
Max resolution of any one: 1920 x 1200
How can I get View to recognize the displays as unique devices? Combining the monitors into one on the View side is okay, but not preferred. The users need to manually size the windows per monitor and cannot maximize the application without it spanning all two (or three) displays.
