Install the Local Mode Client - VMware View: Chapter 5

Install the Local Mode Client VMware View

There are actually four different clients for VMware View currently available.

  • Native Client (32/64-bit)
  • Native Client with Local Mode Desktop (32/64-bit)
  • Apple OS X Native Client

The new version of VMware View introduces 64-bit client support and includes a Apple Mac Client as well – previously Mac users like myself were forced to use a web page only. The Mac client currently only offers a RDP experience, and there is not yet a PCoIP client for the Mac. As such if you are on Mac as I am, you will need to also download and install the RDP Client for Apple Mac.
