To use URL content redirection from a remote desktop or application to a client (agent-to-client redirection), or from a client to a remote desktop or application (client-to-agent redirection), you must enable the URL Content Redirection feature when you install Horizon Agent.

Instead of double-clicking the installer file, start the Horizon Agent installation by running the following command in a command prompt window:

VMware-viewagent-x86_64-y.y.y-xxxxxx.exe /v URL_FILTERING_ENABLED=1

Follow the prompts and complete the installation.

To verify that the URL Content Redirection feature is installed, make sure that the vmware-url-protocol-launch-helper.exe and vmware-url-filtering-plugin.dll files are in the %PROGRAMFILES%\VMware\VMware View\Agent\bin\UrlRedirection directory. Also, verify that the VMware Horizon View URL Filtering Plugin Internet Explorer add-on is enabled.
