People keep asking on a regular basis, where can we download the View Client. This is the currently latest version available (at time of writing).
Follow this link to the download
http://downloads.vmware.com/d/details/view_460_clients_en/ZEB3YnRkcEBiZCpqag== This link will take you to the View 4.6 download page, which includes the current supported MAC version
http://downloads.vmware.com/d/details/view_500_clients_en/dCV0YnQqJWhidGVkdA== This link will take you to the View 5.0 download page.
Also, shouldn’t the View Client be available by pointing at the connection server they want to connect to?
That is correct, by accessing the View Connection server you can download the client but only of the version of the View Connection server. You may want a newer client, but have an older version of the connection server.
