On 2 September 2021 the CGCYBER Virtualization team will implement Horizon Client Restrictions. This feature ensures only clients running a minimum software version or later will be allowed to connect to VDI. Any connection requests from clients using a version earlier than 2006 will be denied. In order to prevent any delays in service, please verify your Horizon Client version and update personal computers prior to 2 September. The current client can be downloaded from the following link https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/downloads/details?downloadGroup=CART22FQ2_WIN_2106&productId=1027 

  

If you are a Mac user needing to download VMware Horizon, please look here
