Accessing AppStreaming

Issue/Question

How do I access AppStreaming?

Any work not saved to an external source (e.g., your device, a network drive, or a cloud service like OneDrive) will be destroyed and lost when the connection is closed and cannot be recovered. 

Resolution

It is recommended to use the VMware Horizon Client to ensure you can save work to your device.
  1. Navigate to https://appstream.wku.edu
  2. Click either Install VMWare Horizon Client or Web Browser Access.
    Note: If you install the Client, enter appstream.wku.edu when prompted for the name of the Connection Server.
  3. Enter your NetID and password.
  4. You will be presented with a list of all the streaming apps available to your account.
  5. When you launch an app, it will take between 20 seconds and two minutes before it appears.
  6. To save your work on a network drive, See This Article.  If working in an Office app (e.g. Word, Excel, PowerPoint), you can save your work to OneDrive; See This Article.
  7. When done, close the app.
