Dual-Monitor Session for XenDesktop 7


Symptom

XenDesktop 7: Windows desktop system or Windows server system only shows up on one display although you are using a dual-monitor setup.


Problem

By default the Storefront server is configured to start the VDI on one display only. This is by design but you should be able to maximize to both monitors after the session has started.


Solution

You need to edit the file web.config in the StoreWeb directory on your Storefront server.

The default directory is:

INSTALLDIR\inetpub\wwwroot\citrix\Storeweb\

Set showDesktopViewer=false

After saving your published desktop should expand over both screens.
