Horizon 7 includes several component-specific group policy administrative (ADM and ADMX) template files.

All ADMX files that provide group policy settings for Horizon 7 are available in a bundled .zip file named VMware-Horizon-Extras-Bundle-x.x.x-yyyyyyy.zip, where x.x.x is the version and yyyyyyy is the build number. You can download the file from the VMware download site at https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/downloads. Under Desktop & End-User Computing, select the VMware Horizon 7 download, which includes the bundled .zip file.


In Horizon 7 version 7.1, the ADM template files are deprecated and the ADMX template files are added.

You can optimize and secure remote desktops by adding the policy settings in these files to a new or existing GPO in Active Directory and then linking that GPO to the OU that contains your desktops.

See the View Administration and Configuring Remote Desktop Features in Horizon 7 documents for information on using Horizon 7 group policy settings.
