Setting up a Horizon deployment for Windows 10 clients involves configuring certain Connection Server settings, meeting the system requirements for Horizon servers and Windows 10 clients, and installing the
VMware Horizon Client app.
System Requirements for Windows 10 Devices The Windows 10 device on which you install the VMware Horizon Client app, and the peripherals it uses, must meet certain system requirements.
System Requirements for Real-Time Audio-Video Real-Time Audio-Video works with standard webcam, USB audio, and analog audio devices. The feature also works with standard conferencing applications. To support Real-Time Audio-Video, your Horizon deployment must meet certain software and hardware requirements.
Windows Hello Authentication Requirements To use Windows Hello to authenticate in Horizon Client, you must meet certain requirements.
Preparing Connection Server for Horizon Client Before end users can connect to a server and access a remote desktop or published application, a Horizon administrator must configure certain Connection Server settings.
Supported Desktop Operating Systems Horizon administrators create virtual machines with a guest operating system and install agent software in the guest operating system. End users can log in to these virtual machines from a client device.
Install or Upgrade the VMware Horizon Client App The VMware Horizon Client app is a Windows 10 app, and you install it just as you do other Windows 10 apps.
Save Information About Recent Servers You can configure Horizon Client to save a server shortcut on the Horizon Client home window after you connect to a server for the first time.
Configure Advanced TLS Options You can select the security protocols and cryptographic algorithms that Horizon uses to encrypt communications between Horizon Client and servers, and between Horizon Client and Horizon Agent.
Configure VMware Blast Options You can configure H.264 decoding for remote desktop and published application sessions that use the VMware Blast display protocol.
Displaying Help for Horizon Client To access the Horizon Client help from within the VMware Horizon Client app, tap the Option menu in the upper-left corner of the Horizon Client menu bar, tap the information ( !) icon, and tap the link under Online Help.
Configure Horizon Client Data Sharing If your Horizon administrator has opted to participate in the customer experience improvement program, VMware collects and receives anonymous data on client systems to prioritize hardware and software compatibility. You can configure whether to share information on your client system by enabling or disabling a setting in Horizon Client.
