Product/Version : VMware Horizon Client for Mac/4.3
Does Horizon work on Mac OS Catalina 10.15?
yes, it works... but since the upgrade to macOS 10.15 my sessions are closing every 10-45 minutes and I have to reconnect.
I have not found a solution yet. The Horizon Client is not working stable right now.
I am using the Version 5.2.0 (14625369)
I entered the screen protection. After unlocking, the Horizo n view will not be disconnected. When I click on the mouse, it will be disconnected. It is very leaky. I tried the same 5.1.0, 5.2.0.
We are seeing this issue as well.
App Crashes when connecting to VM. Or if it connects any application switching from the local OS will cause the application to crash.
System Version: macOS 10.15 (19A583)
Kernel Version: Darwin 19.0.0
Upgraded MacOS to
System Version: macOS 10.15 (19A602)
Kernel Version: Darwin 19.0.0
The issue persists.
I have seen the same thing. However, in addition to the disconnects, the USB redirect through the Horizon client is also not working any longer since the update to Catalina. The local USB printer is not redirected to the DaaS desktop. The only thing in the USB redirect menu shows "No USB devices available" error. This is also very frustrating as the only option now that I can think of is to downgrade back to a previous OS until VMware updates the Horizon Client.
Any other option would be most appreciated.
I'm using 5.20 and with catalina and the supplemental catalina update. Three issues so far:
Hi, I'm the Horizon Client product manager. Has anyone on this thread opened a ticket with VMware? If you have the SR number, please share it, I would love to see logs and figure this out!
Had this settings all along, yet having the same issue. As soon as the screen goes off, the client disconnects.
This only started happening after the upgrade to Catalina.
Client Version 5.2.0 (14625369)
As the project manager, have you tried, or having your engineers recreate the issue in your lab? This should be pretty simple to recreate. Let us know, as you already have the versions involved.
I actually received the official word from VMware support yesterday afternoon. Below was what we were told regarding the Horzion Client 5.2:
At this point MAC OS Catalina is not supported with the latest MAC Horizon Client 5.2. VMWare is working on the next version of the Horizon Client for MAC, however this will most likely not be released until December or January. At this time if an end user upgrades their MAC to Catalina, they will only be able to utilize blast via a browser to access their DaaS desktop.
NogBadTheBad is right. Apple has delivered the macOS beta seeds many months ago... In the beta stage of OSX is enough time to get ready for a Day-0 support of software.
We have many external users and it is too difficult for us to brief each person and tell them that they should downgrade the operating system to get the client running stable again.
There should come out a quick fix only for the Horizon Client... in that case we don't have to wait for a full software bundle with server component updates...
We only need a supported and stable client.
I hope you can help us...! Thanks JO!
Yes, the betas have been out for a while but they were also changing right up until the end. We have been able to reproduce the crash in some scenarios and are working diligently on a fix.
