You can install Workstation Player on end user machines using a command line and specify the Horizon FLEX server connection settings by using a uniform resource identifier (URI). When installation of Workstation Player is complete, the end user is prompted to connect to a server and download a Horizon FLEX virtual machine.


  • Give the end user a password for the server and the Workstation Player license key for use with Horizon FLEX.
    Note: You don't need to provide end users with the license key if you distributed the Horizon FLEX license key. See Distribute the Horizon FLEX Client License Key.


Construct a URI to create a customized Workstation Player installation and deployment package.
The command line has the following structure:
VMware-player-x.x.x-xxxxxxx.exe /v PLAYER_RVM_URI="vmware-rvm://[email protected]:7443"
Specify the version and build number of the Workstation Player .exe file. username is the user's login name and is the host name of the server. You must include vmware-rvm:// and :7443 in the server address. Do not include http or https in the server address.
