Command Line
    1. For a View Client Silent installation with no reboot and no icons run this command:

      VMware-viewclient.exe /S /V /qn DESKTOP_SHORTCUT=0 VDM_SERVER=<IP-Address> INSTALLDIR=C:\VDM RDPCHOICE=0 REBOOT=Reallysuppress

      where these are the options used:
        • REBOOT=Reallysuppress suppresses a reboot after the install. If you remove REBOOT=Reallysuppress, the machine automatically reboots after the install.

        • VDM_SERVER defines the Connection Broker.

        • DESKTOP_SHORTCUT=0 prevents a shortcut from being placed on the Desktop. A shortcut is placed on the Desktop by default. If you do not want a shortcut, set the value to 0.

        • INSTALLDIR=C:\VDM specifies the installation path.

        • RDPCHOICE=0 prevents RDP from being enabled. After the installation, RDP is enabled by default. If you do not want RDP to be enabled, set the value to 0.

Command Line

Silent installation with forced reboot:

vmware-viewclient.exe /s /v/qn /l <path_to_logfile>

To create a customized installation, use /a to create an administrative installation (MSI) where you can use your favorite MSI-Tool (e.g. InstallTailor) to create a MST-file and use regular MSI installation switches like: 

msiexec /i "VMware View Client.msi" /QN TRANSFORMS="mytransform.mst" RESTART=REALLYSUPPRESS

or, if you want to fix the setting:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\Client\Security\CertCheckMode

0 : Allow not proofable connections and do not warn

1 : Allow not proofable connections but warn (Standard)
