NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade vmware-horizon-client -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade vmware-horizon-client -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.

  • DPI Synchronization
    • The DPI Synchronization feature ensures that the remote desktop's DPI setting matches the client machine's DPI setting for new remote sessions. This feature is enabled by default. An administrator can disable this feature by disabling the Horizon Agent DPI Synchronization group policy setting. For more information, see "Horizon Agent Configuration ADM Template Settings" in Setting Up Desktop and Application Pools in View.
  • Configure Real-Time Audio-Video settings in Horizon Client
    • You can now select your preferred webcam and microphone in the Horizon Client Settings dialog box.
  • Physical client information is sent to remote desktops in a double-hop scenario
    • If Horizon Client is running inside of a remote desktop session, it sends some physical client information (instead of virtual machine information) to the remote desktop. For information about the physical client information that Horizon Client sends to the second-hop desktop, see "Client System Information Sent to Remote Desktops" in Setting Up Desktop and Application Pools in View.
  • Username hint field support for smart card authentication
    • Smart card users that use a single smart card certificate to authenticate to multiple user accounts can enter their user name in the Username hint field in the Horizon Client login dialog box during smart card sign-in. To make the Username hint field appear on the Horizon Client login dialog box, an administrator must enable the smart card user name hints feature for the Connection Server instance. This feature also requires Horizon 7 version 7.0.2.
  • Pass command-line arguments when launching a remote application from a URI
    • You can use the args query to pass command-line arguments when you launch a remote application from a URI.
  • Spanish language support
    • Both the Horizon Client for Windows user interface and the documentation are now available in Spanish.
