Description Michal Skrivanek 2013-08-15 13:19:43 UTC
In order to be able to use MIME console launch we need to allow Windows users to download and install virt-viewer (and usb-clerk) via some other way than ActiveX plugin.

We should expose 64-bit version

and 32bit versions:

I was thinking the bottom of landing page would be appropriate

Comment 3 Jay Turner 2013-08-20 17:19:55 UTC
This needs to go through the exception process then as a late requirement.  Setting proposed exception.

Comment 6 Michal Skrivanek 2013-08-23 14:55:09 UTC
we are thinking of adding a page linked from Edit VM (maybe also the main landing page and other places) which would briefly describe the console access possibilities and provide downloadable resources

Please CC me for every usage of branding, so it won't be abused for something it was not designed to.

I've verified bug #1010211 on build spice-client-msi-3.3-5 which was tagged for rhevn inclusion so should be picked up with next is build, The msi files was renamed to names without version included. You are good to go.

Comment 22 Michal Skrivanek 2013-12-18 15:54:55 UTC
doc page is dead end it seems, the links cannot be added due to dependency on customer portal.
Since we run out of time, for 3.3 we're going to remove the reference to upstream wiki and add a simple static page in english only in 3.3.z

Comment 26 Frantisek Kobzik 2014-02-27 13:57:35 UTC
1064852 was set to modified, setting this bug to modified too since all prerequisities for having (localizable) console client resources are met.

Comment 27 Jiri Belka 2014-03-07 14:45:08 UTC
ok, av2.1

Comment 28 Itamar Heim 2014-06-12 14:10:05 UTC
Closing as part of 3.4.0
