Students are encouraged to use a device with at least a 9-inch screen and physical keyboard. The VMware Horizon Client will run on a smaller device or one without a keyboard; however, using a recommended device ensures an optimal user experience.
Note for Windows users: Windows 8 and above is highly recommended; however, Windows 7 SP1 will work.
Open a Terminal and Start the Installer with the command: sudo sh ./.bundle, replacing “” with the name of the .bundle file and you downloaded.
Example: sudo sh ./VMware-Horizon-Client-2306-8.10.0-21964631.x64.bundle
After the installation is complete, launch the VMware Horizon Client.
