Web Client

VMware Horizon Web Access Client

New in our latest iteration of MyVLab is a Web Access Client. This allows you to log into a MyVLab session and use applications without the use of the VMware Horizon Client. All you need is an HTML5 compatible web browser.

Logging in

Follow these steps to log into MyVLab using the Web client:

  1. Open your web browser and enter https://myvlab.vdi.uwo.ca into the address bar

    enter url

  2. Click the VMware Horizon HTML Access link

    select html access

  3. Enter your Western username & password and click Login

    enter username and password

  4. Once logged in, click on the box labeled MyVLab. This will open the desktop session within your browser window.

    select myvlab

Transfering Files

Unlike sessions opened using the VMware Horizon Client, the HTML access client does not allow you to connect your local computer's drives or folders directly to the MyVLab desktop session. Instead, it provides a file transfer panel that allows you to transfer files between your computer and the MyVlab desktop.

  1. Click on the tab on the left side of the screen to open up the Horizon side panel.

    click side tab

  2. Click on the File Transfer Panel Icon to open it.

    select file transfer panel

  3. Follow the on screen directions to Upload or Download files between your computer and the MyVLab desktop.
