Connector Installation Improvements


There have been a number of improvements made to the vWorkspace Connector for Windows to improve the user experience during installs, especially during the automated install that occurs when visiting an 8.5 vWorkspace website. 


  • The installer file, vasclient32.exe, can be renamed to control the installation behavior as follows:


  1. vasclient32.exe – all options will be installed.


  1. vasclient32t.exe - the AppPortal desktop icon will NOT be created and the Dell URL Redirection plugin for Internet Explorer will NOT be installed.


  1. vasclient32nousb.exe - USB components will NOT being installed.


  1. vasclient32t_nousb.exe – both #2 and #3 above apply.


  • This installer will uninstall previous versions of both the Full and Web vWorkspace Connectors for Windows during upgrades. 


  • In this installer, the Credential Pass-through dialog is no longer part of the setup steps simplifying the setup process for users.


  • NOTE: The version for the connector is different from the vWorkspace Patch Installer (8.5.307.1988). The connector version, 8.5.308.1991, should be used in the Management Console for the Connector Management/Installation/Windows configuration.
