This guide describes how to install, configure, and use the VMware Horizon® HTML Access™ software to connect to remote desktops and published applications. HTML Access is a good alternative when Horizon Client software is not installed on the client system.

Note: Horizon Client offers more features and better performance than HTML Access. For example, with HTML Access, some key combinations do not work in the remote desktop, but these key combinations do work with Horizon Client.

This document includes system requirements and instructions for installing HTML Access software on a Connection Server instance and on a virtual desktop or Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) host.

This information is intended for administrators who are familiar with VMware Horizon and VMware vSphere. If you are a novice user, you might need to refer to the step-by-step instructions for basic procedures in the Horizon Installation and Horizon Administration documents
