VMware Server - Automatic Display to the Desktop
I've just brought a new laptop for Assembly presentations. It' has 4Gb RAM, so I left it running Vista x64. However, the school would like it to run like a normal domain PC. XP with group policies etc. I decided to install VMware Server 2.0 on it, however, found that there was no way that I could automatically get the VM to actually display at startup. I know it can automatically boot up in the background. But can it actually pop up on startup so the end user doesn't have to do anything and can be taken to the VM straight away.
I have managed this with VMware Workstation. Just add the .vmx file to the startup and set it to play with VMware Player. However, VMware Server doesn't come with Player, it comes with it's own Remote Console Plug-In.
Also, does VMware Player support audio? I have used the VM created from VMware Server to play on VMware Player, but it keeps saying no audio device detected. To achieve what I want, will I need VMware Workstation?
