OS Code for VMware View

This post is created based on my personal test and what I read on “cliffdavies.com” site (This article was first published by Andre Leibovici ( @andreleibovici ) at “myvirtualcloud.net“) and base on it, if you want “Windows 8 CP” showing up in your “VMware View Administrator Portal” you should make some manual changes on the ADAM which installed by “VMware View”; for process of this change you can check above links.

Below table showing different OS code and their pair OS Name.

Code OS
1 Windows XP
2 Windows Vista
3 Windows 2003
4 Windows 2008
5 Windows 7

Screen of what you would get if you changing this number (pae-OSVersion):

Number 1:

Number 2:

Number 3:

Number 4:

Number 5:

Number 6:

Well, I’ve checked but it seems there is no “6” for any OS yet, may be Windows 8 get this number! 😉
