I am trying to establish what permissions a user will require to successfully use vmware horizon view client on their windows 7 laptop (it will be installed by an admin with administrator permissions). We need to determine if the client will require administrator permissions to use the client and establish a connection via vmware horizon view to a third parties network.

Standard User permissions, once it has been installed by an Administrator, e.g. same permissions that are required to use any Office Application or Internet Explorer.

We need to determine if the client will require administrator permissions to use the client and establish a connection via vmware horizon view to a third parties network.

Not required.

Is there anywhere we could get a spec of permissions i.e. official vmware document stating this (by no means questioning your response but something official may put our IT at ease with the process).

You could look at the VMware Horizon View documentation, or call VMware Support!

It's just a software application, do your IT department ask the same questions when Domain Users use Internet Explorer or Microsoft Word ?

It's the same as ALL Clients, e.g. Remote Deskop, Citrix ICA they are all the same. Once the user has started the client the user account they use to connect to the remote system, dictates what permissions they receive in the VM.
