Are you on View 4.6? There was some compability issues with View 4.5 and the iPad client.
Yes, I´m on 4.6 with all components...
I can confirm, that the issue occurs only on Windows 7 VMs!!
We have tested OS language "english" and "german", with the keyboards "English (US)" and "German (Germany)"...
We got many support requests from our users...
We have the same issue here. All components are View 4.6. Virtual Desktop is Windows 7 X64. The Keyboard layout should be german but is english.
Is there any solution for this?
Sorry, I doesn´t get any feedback about this...
Any ideas, Community?
In future releases, we are adding in international keyboard support for the major languages we usually support.
More on this later...
please bring this feature asap, many customers in EMEA are using the Client and got problems with their keyboards.
upcoming release of View Client for iPad will solve this issue.
Anyone got any news on this? I'd characterize this as a fairly significant shortcoming in the client, and it's a major showstopper for our customers (in Norway).
No, at this moment I haven´t news about the keyboard issue.
I think, there will be a upcoming update with View 5.
I´ll keep you updated!
We are working hard to get this into the next (post 5.0) release of View. A workaround is to set the VDI to Engliish input and the iPad to the european input. It seems to work well in most use cases.
Today i installed the latest update of te View Client for iPad (Version 1.2) but the issue remains. This is bad because it is a "showstopper" for using iPads with View (and Androids) with View Desktops. Because we want to use the same virtual Desktop on the iPad and on Workstations switching the default text input language of ethe VDesktop to english doesn´t work for us.
Is there a solution in the pipe?
I second that. This is shocking prioritizing by Vmware. This has been reported for 6 months and honestly can't be that hard to fix. It's keyboard-mapping, it's not like everything has to be built from ground up (or atleast I hope not).
Most people in the world DON'T use US keyboards.
Sure, I confirm that.
In the actual situation, View Client for iPad was not usable for us and many customers around the world with this really big bug!
Very interesting is, that the localization support was build in with version 1.2, BUT NOT THE KEYBOARDS!
