After you have created your AppStacks, you must place them in file shares. Then you can assign the applications in the AppStacks to user groups.


Open a File Explorer window for \\share IP\sharename

This is the file share where the AppStacks go. This file share is the file share that you configure using the Administration Console.


Copy your AppStack .vmdk and .json files to this directory.

AppCapture produces two types of files:

.vmdk files for mounting AppStacks on virtual machines

.vhd files for mounting them on physical machines

Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure uses only .vmdk files. However, you might use .vhd files to install applications on a physical machine with other VMware products.

After adding AppStacks to file shares, you must synchronize the file shares by using Horizon Cloud with On-Premises Infrastructure. See Import AppStacks.
