Windows fix on patch Tuesday 'breaks' VMware software

Jon Brodkin | Feb. 10, 2011
VMware is telling customers that two Windows 7 security patches have left the VMware View desktop virtualization client unable to access the View Connection Server, which brokers the connection between a user's computer and a virtual desktop.

"Since we're giving up some aspects of change management with BYOD, these types of problems are inevitable," Wolf writes. "Contingency planning, remediation testing, and training that may also include patch distribution through personal e-mail is an essential, but sometimes overlooked aspect of deploying BYOD solutions. Organizations that are fixing broken VMware View connectivity on user-owned Windows 7 devices are learning that lesson the hard way."

We've contacted Microsoft and VMware and will provide an update if we learn anything more.
