Brand the VMware View Landing Page – Part 3 – Update for View 7.4

Hi Folks, it’s update time again.  This time around we are looking at the latest Horizon 7.4 release.

The original post for View 6.x and 7.0 can be found here and it was subsequently updated it for 7.1 here.

The amended default screens and file location details for Horizon 7.4 are below:

Landing Page


HTML Logon Page

The logo and background is maintained from the previous screen.

 The images can be found in the following location in a default installation on the Connection Server

C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Server\broker\webapps\portal\webclient\icons-7361877

KeyFilenameImage Size

The text marked 2,3,6,7,8,10 and 11 on the key can be found in the below location (default install) – bit of a mouthful!  Edit this file as appropriate.

C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Server\broker\webapps\portal\WEB-INF\classes\com\vmware\vdi\installer\i18n\

It goes without saying to backup all files or the connection server(s) before making any changes.  Restart the connection service and refresh your browser to apply.

These customisations will not persist through an upgrade so will have to be recreated.

Below is an example of Computerworld’s test demo environment – I have added some company branding and background I’ve left the text in place but this can be removed if desired.

This has been tested on a single security server/connection server pairing running View


Do not pass go and head directly to HTML portal page

If you want to skip the landing page and have users hit the portal page directly which is a useful feature make the change in the following file


Change the top line to disable the download


Restart the View Web Component service.

** Thanks to Andrew Morgan and Mark Benson @vmware for the portal page tip!

Happy Branding!
