If the current licenses on a system expire, or if you want to access VMware Horizon View features that are currently unlicensed, you can use View Administrator to add licenses.

You can add a license to VMware Horizon View while View Manager is running. You do not need to reboot the system, and access to desktops is not interrupted.

For the successful operation of View Manager and add-on features such as View Composer and local desktops, obtain a valid license key.


In View Administrator, select View Configuration > Product licensing and usage and click Edit license.


Enter the license serial number and click OK.

The Product Licensing window shows the updated licensing information.
