You can install the client using the Horizon Mirage Management console.

The client MSI Installer file is located in the Horizon Mirage installation package.


Verify that you have administrative permissions.


Verify that your platform meets the software and hardware requirements.


Because you cannot place Horizon Mirage servers in the customer's DMZ premises, use a VPN to connect clients that will be used outside the network.


If the client will use SSL to connect to the server SSL must already be configured on the server.


Double-click the client MSI Installer file, accept the terms and conditions of use, and click Next.


Select the server settings and click Next.



IP or FQDN of server

Type the IP address or FQDN of the server you want this client to communicate with.

You can also append a port to the server location if you do not want to use the default (port 8000).

Use SSL to connect to the server option

Select this option to enable SSL if your server is configured for SSL use, and type the required SSL port.


Click Install, and when the installation is finished, click Finish.


(Optional) Restart your computer.

For first-time installation, restarting assures better backup protection and enables streaming which promotes faster restore. For an upgrade, restarting promotes better performance.

After the Horizon Mirage client is installed, the endpoint appears in the Management console as Pending Assignment.

Activate the device in the Management console and use a CVD on the server to assign it. This process synchronizes the device and centralizes management of the device data.
