To support USB redirection, the system must meet certain requirements.

For more information about VMware thin-client and zero-client partners, see the VMware Compatibility Guide. To use the USB components available for third-party vendors, certain files must be installed in certain locations, and certain processes must be configured to start before Horizon Client is launched. These details are beyond the scope of this document.

For Horizon Client, the USB redirection feature requires the VMware Blast or PCoIP display protocol.
