Windows 10 desktops require View Agent 6.2 or later or Horizon Agent 7.0 or later. Windows Server 2012 R2 desktops require View Agent 6.1 or later.

Important: View Agent 6.1 and later and Horizon Agent 7.0 and later releases do not support Windows XP and Windows Vista desktops. View Agent 6.0.2 is the last View release that supports these guest operating systems. Customers who have an extended support agreement with Microsoft for Windows XP and Vista, and an extended support agreement with VMware for these guest operating systems, can deploy the View Agent 6.0.2 version of their Windows XP and Vista desktops with View Connection Server 6.1.

For descriptions of these features and their limitations, see the View Architecture Planning document.

Feature Support for Session-Based Desktops on RDS Hosts

RDS hosts are server computers that have Windows Remote Desktop Services and View Agent or Horizon Agent installed. Multiple users can have desktop sessions on an RDS host simultaneously. An RDS host can be either a physical machine or a virtual machine.

Note: The following table contains rows only for the features that are supported. Where the text specifies a minimum version of View Agent, the text "and later" is meant to include Horizon Agent 7.0 and later.
