Launching Horizon Remote Apps from Workspace ONE

Updated on

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


  • 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

Workspace ONE Login

Launch a web browser and open the Workspace ONE login page at https://testdrive.vidmpreview.com.

Enter your TestDrive username (username only, not your email address) and password, then hit Sign In.

Workspace ONE Landing Page

After authentication, you will first be brought to the Favorites section.

Workspace ONE Apps Page

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.

Launch Paint.NET

Find RDSH-Paint.NET on the page. Click the three dots in the lower right corner of the icon and choose Launch from Browser.

Note:  Launch from Client option is available, but requires Horizon Client already installed on your client machine.

Paint.NET Launched

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

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.

End of Experience

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

Feel free to launch other Horizon Remote Apps from Workspace ONE.
