After you have created your AppStack, you must place it in a file share.


You must first create a file share and add it on the Locations page as an application file share.


  1. Open a File Explorer window for \\share IP\sharename where sharename is the name of your application file share.
  2. Copy your AppStack .vmdk and .json files to this directory.

    AppCapture produces two types of files:

    • .vmdk files for mounting AppStacks on virtual machines

    • .vhd files for mounting them on physical machines

    Horizon Cloud uses only .vmdk files. However, you might use .vhd files to install applications on a physical machine with other VMware products.

What to do next

After adding the AppStack to the file share, you must import it. See Import an AppStack into Horizon Cloud.
