A current need we are seeing is to SilkPerformer support the PCOIC protocol. This protocol governs the connectivity of VMWARE infrastructure products such as VDI solutions. We need a way to test this infrastructure such as logging into a VMs and putting load on VMs by using Microsoft Products such as IE and Office (Outlook, IM Messenger) and even Eclipse.
similar to RDP; good candidate for a future version
GUI Level testing could be used to simulate the type of testing proposed here.

SilkPerformer supports the Citrix protocol but not VMware using the PCOIC protocol, which is now more popular. In the future we are planning on replacing our physical PC workstations with VMware virtual desktops and run virtual applications hosted on VMware, so we need SilkPerformer to support PCOIC protocol.
