To support URL Content Redirection from a client to a remote desktop or application (client-to-agent redirection), you must install Horizon Client with the URL Content Redirection feature.

For Horizon Client for Windows, you must use the Horizon Client for Windows installer with a command-line option. Start the installation by running the following command in a command prompt window instead of double-clicking the installer file. For example:

VMware-Horizon-Client-x86-y.y.y-xxxxxx.exe /v URL_FILTERING_ENABLED=1

After you follow the prompts and complete the installation, you can verify that this feature is installed by checking that the vmware-url-protocol-launch-helper.exe file and the vmware-url-filtering-plugin.dll file are installed in the directory %PROGRAMFILES%\VMware\VMware Horizon View Client\. Also verify that the following Internet Explorer add-on is installed: VMware Horizon View URL Filtering Plugin.


Horizon Client for Mac does not support client-to-agent redirection.
