So along with many of you, I have seen many instances where you get a black screen and then disconnect on a Windows 7 desktop. It's always something on the normal culprit list.
This time, I have an install where the black screen appears but never disconnects. You can hit CTL-ALT-DEL and actually see the popup. I can get into task manager and everything.
I have tried changing every video setting on the VM and in the pool itself. Same results.
Also, you can log into that VM through the vCenter console and the desktop comes up just fine. It just doesn't work through View/PCOIP --
By the way, this is all internal so we are not traversing a View Security server.
Did you check the usual culprits?
In particular make sure you have sufficient video RAM for the VM. Try increasing it - see http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1031002
Also make sure you install View Agent *after* VMware Tools.
Yes, I have checked all those docs and usual culprits. Also, like I mentioned, it doesn't show a black screen and then disconnect like I have seen before. It shows the welcome screen, then goes black but never disconnects. You can CTRL-ALT-DELETE and get task manager but can't run explorer or anything.
What I DID find though was if we roll out a pool from the master and make it dedicated, it works just fine! If we roll out a floating pool, it hangs at black screen. We are using Persona Management but I have checked everything else in these forums and the KB, no dice on a floating pool.
i had the same issue.
if you launch the registry via the ctrl-alt-del task manager, search for the string "D:\users". you'll find some settings from the composer user data disk in the HKCU hive. The HKCU hive is part of the roaming profile.
i had this in an ms roaming profile environment, but i think the problem also exists with persona.
Simply delete the "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CD Burning\StagingInfo" key and login again. This fixed it (for me).
