Tag: view vmware horizon 6.2 black screen

Getting black screen connecting to VMware View desktops?

Did come across this on the forums and seems fairly ubiquitous insofar as reports.


If you recently:

i) upgraded to version 6.0 Update 1 for ESXi

ii) Running the latest VMware Tools for View Desktops

iii) But have an older view agent installed

Will see in the PCOIP logs (<drive letter>\ProgramData\VMware\VDM\logs

Upgrade your View agent to the latest version (issue above occurred for me in Horizon 6.2 so latest View agent there and i was up and running).
