In this post, I will detail step-by-step how to install the VMware Horizon GPO templates.

Technically speaking you can fully use VMware Horizon without any of the GPO templates however there are a lot of useful settings in them that you can configure.

Before installing the Horizon GPO templates I recommend you create a Central Store. Here’s how to Create Active Directory Central Store.

I recommend making a note that you’ve added an extra GPO template to the Central Store.

The Process

  • Download the Horizon GPO Bundle from VMware.
Horizon GPO Bundle Download
  • Extract the contents of the VMware Horizon Extra Bundle zip file.

  • Copy over all the files including the folder for you language to your Central Store. (even if your language isn’t English copy over en-US too because it is used as a fail safe if something isn’t translated in your language)
Copying Horizon GPO Bundle to the Central Store
  • Now when you create a new GPO you will have VMware Horizon options listed under Computer and User configurations.
