During a recent install of View 4 I ran into a particular issue with a number of XP workstations that we were installing the View 4 client on. When trying to connect using PCoIP to the View desktops we would receive the following error.
When connecting using RDP it worked fine and using other workstations the connection worked fine.
We also received the following error messages in the event log.
The DLL mentioned in the error should be located in the following location
C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Client\bin
Upon investigation this DLL was missing despite no error reported during the installation. I then tried copying the dll from a working machine to this location and registering it but this didn’t help. A repair or reinstallation hasn’t helped at all.
This is currently being investigated by VMware and I will update the post once I have a resolution. Would love to hear from anyone that has experienced this issue and resolved it.
VMware and Linjo below have come back with the same thing, if you are installing the View Client on a Workstation and wish to use PCoIP your processor needs to support SSE2 and be at least 800MHz. This is listed on page 21 of the admin guide.
It is worth noting that this was only included in version EN-000242-01 of the admin guide and not the original EN-000242-00, unfortunatly I had the original copy!
An easy way to find out if your CPU does support SSE2 is to run this application http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php
