Horizon Agent installer allows you to modify already installed components without needing to uninstall and reinstall Horizon Agent.
You can run Horizon Agent installer on a virtual machine where Horizon Agent is already installed to modify, repair, or remove previously installed components. You can also change custom setup options silently using the command line.
Note: You cannot swtich between installation types, such as managed to unmanaged machines. You also cannot modify Instant Clone Agent (NGVC).
- To start the Horizon Agent installation program, double-click the installer file. The installer filename is VMware-Horizon-Agent-x86-YYMM-y.y.y-xxxxxx.exe, where YYMM is the marketing version number, y.y.y is the internal version number, and xxxxxx is the build number.
You can also use the Uninstall or change a program in the Control Panel: Click VMware Horizon Agent, then click Change.

- Modify: add or remove the components that are installed.
- Repair: fix missing or corrupt files, shortcuts, and registry entries.
- Remove: remove Horizon Agent from the computer.
- Select or deselect features to add or remove them from the list.
