Launching Horizon Remote Apps from Workspace ONE

Updated

In this quick walkthrough we're going to show you how to launch Paint.NET as a Horizon Remote Application from Workspace ONE.

Overview

  • Log in to Workspace ONE
  • Launch Paint.NET as a Horizon Remote Application from Workspace ONE Access

Before You Begin

In order to perform the full end-to-end demo make sure you have the following:

  • A valid account in the VMware TestDrive environment, sign up here if you don't yet have an account
  • TCP & UDP ports 80, 443, 8443; and if using PCoIP, both TCP & UDP 4172
  • Latest Horizon Client installed, available via direct download here

Let's get started, open up your favorite web browser and get signed into Workspace ONE at

Enter your TestDrive username (username only, not your email address), then hit Next.

Enter your TestDrive password, then hit Sign in.

You will first be brought to the Favorites section.

Go to the Apps section at the top of the page, then scroll to the bottom of the page to Categories and click on Horizon.

Find Paint.NET on the page. Click the three dots in the lower right corner of the icon and choose Add to Favorites.

Go back to the Favorites section where you will now see Paint.NET. Click on the three dots in the lower right corner of the icon and choose Launch from Client (requires Horizon Client already installed on your local machine) or Launch from Browser to open the virtual desktop in a separate tab.

After a few moments, the application will launch in the Horizon Client or your web browser.

Once Paint.NET has loaded, you may use it just as you normally would a natively installed version of Paint.NET.  Go ahead and create a drawing on the canvas.

And as easy as that you've launched Paint.NET as a published Horizon Remote Application from Workspace ONE Access.

Feel free to add other Apps to your Workspace ONE Access Favorites and launch them from Horizon Client or browser.
