Windows 7 Patch Not Exactly VMware Friendly

Two patches that shipped by Microsoft last month are apparently causing heartache for VMware customers. It seems the patches kill connections between VMware View Connection Servers and Windows 7, VMware charges.

Fortunately there are two fixes -- one a real fix and one a real kludge. The first is to install a patch from VMware for the View Client. That sounds like a fix. VMware offered another option: Uninstall the two Microsoft patches. I don't know about you, but I'm not a fan of removing something designed to keep hackers from taking over my machine. Hey, maybe that's just me!
