You can add or edit entitlements for a tenant on the Entitlements tab.

The term entitlement refers to a file that enables a virtual desktop to use some third-party application (for example, a remote display protocol server or client program). The entitlement file may be a simple text file that contains a license, or it may be an executable file that runs when the application starts up.

To add an entitlement on the Entitlements tab:

  1. Click the Add New Entitlements link.

  2. Make settings as follows.

    Setting/Field

    Description

    Control Action

    Always Grant means that the file is copied every time the virtual desktop starts. Grant means that the file is copied just once.

    Entitlement

    Select an entitlement file by browsing the network. If the filename of the entitlement file and the file system path on the virtual desktop matches a service-wide entitlement, the tenant entitlement will override the service-wide entitlement the next time the virtual desktop reboots. Otherwise, the tenant entitlement is added to the set of service-wide entitlements that are part of the desktop model already

    File System Location

    When the virtual desktop starts up, the Entitlement file is written to the File System Location.

    Invoke Action

    None means that the entitlement file just needs to be present. Regsvr32 means that the entitlement file needs to be registered as an OLE control using Regsvr32.exe.

    Reboot

    If the virtual desktop needs to be rebooted to activate the entitlement, you need to check this box.

    Select Desktop Model

    (Tenant entitlements only) Select the desktop model to which to apply the entitlement.

  3. Click the Add Entitlement button.
