Prospective View Client machines are not prompted for latest View Client build

Windows 7 Machines not yet installed with View Client will be prompted to download and install an older client build 293049 (not build 353760 as per article kb.vmware.com/kb/1034262) when they connect to the View Connection Server which is also running build 293049.

This build 353760 solves connection problem for those Windows 7 View clients with service pack 1.

Can this symptom be fixed ? In addition, is it possible to disable the download link so the users will have to perform an offline manual installation?

Thanks

Hi Hong,

Because the patch build also has a 4.5.0 version number, clients won't be prompted to upgrade from 4.5.0 GA when accessing the portal. 4.6.0 has the fix for Win7 SP1 included, so I would recommend moving if at all possible, clients will then be prompted to upgrade as expected. If you need to stay with 4.5.0, you can replace the client binaries served up to fresh machines by replacing the C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Server\broker\webapps\downloads.war\*.exe files.
