Horizon Client for Windows Store is a Windows Store app, and you install it just as you do other Windows Store apps. You can install Horizon Client for Windows Store on tablets, desktop computers, or laptops that run Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1, or Windows 8.1 Pro.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that your client device uses the recommended operating system, which is Windows RT 8.1. Although you can install VMware Horizon Client for Windows Store on a Windows 8.1 or Windows 8.1 Pro device, VMware recommends that for these x86- and x64-based systems, you install VMware Horizon Client for Windows (rather than Windows Store).

  • If you have not already set up the device, do so. See the manufacturer's user's guide for your device.

  • Verify that you have the URL for a download page that contains the VMware Horizon Client installer. This URL might be for the Download VMware Horizon Clients page at http://www.vmware.com/go/viewclients, or it might be for the Windows Store.

Procedure

  1. On your device, browse or search the Windows Store for the VMware Horizon app.
  2. Download and install the app.
