There is no current option to specify a fixed resolution for the connect and have it scale to fit the screen, there is however experimental support for DPI scaling mode in the client which may give you what you need. In the registry, set:
[HKLM\Software\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\Client]
This feature is not currently officially supported but feel free to play with it and provide feedback. Don't forget that on 64-bit systems this key would instead be at HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\Client.
You need version 3.6 and it is actually HKCU not KCLM
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\Client]
Version 3.6? Do you have a link to that?
There is Locked Guest Size GPO, which can specifies the screen resolution of the remote desktop if the display is used on one monitor.After you enable the setting, remote desktop autofit functionality is disabled.This setting applies only to PCoIP connections and does not apply to RDP connections. Please see P38, client user guide for detail. BTW, the latest client version is 3.5.2, Thanks.
