    My virtual desktop forcibly disconnects my session after 10 hrs - can I change that?

      The Horizon View clients have a setting which forces a user session disconnect after x minutes.

      This value is set to 600 minutes by default.  For clients that do not support application remoting, a maximum timeout value of 1200 minutes applies if the value of this setting is Never or greater than 1200 minutes.


      This value can be adjusted via a windows registry key on the Guest VM:


           HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\Agent\Configuration\XMLAPI\sessionTimeout


      If you are still having a problem changing this behavior, please let us know!
