What happens if you select “Log in as current user” in your View Client, but want to log in as another user? It’s not exactly easy to remove the checkbox so it doesn’t log you in automatically, but there are ways to undo it.
Option 1) Launch the client with the “-logInAsCurrentUser false” parameter:
“C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Client\bin\wswc.exe” -logInAsCurrentUser false
Option 2) Make a registry change to undo the setting:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\Client\Security\LogInAsCurrentUser_Default = 0
You can also disable the ability to even set the “Log in as current user” option with the other registry key “LogInAsCurrentUser_Display”.
