Upgrading To Horizon View 5.2 – Connection Server

In the last blog post we upgraded our Composer Server which was straight forward (great job VMware).  Next we need to upgrade the Connection Server.

The upgrade process is in two parts, first of all we need to upgrade the Connection Server and then install HTML Access.

Connection Server

The first thing we are going to need is the right installer.  These can be found from here and at the time of writing the latest release is VMware-viewconnectionserver-x86_64-5.2.0-987719.exe

Launch the installer

Click Next

Accept the EULA

Connection Server Upgrade 3

We are now ready to install.  Hit the button!

This is going to take a little while, so I suggest you make a quick brew.

All done, now you don’t have to reboot, I just prefer to do this to make sure everything is correct.

Just to verify, let’s check Programs & Features to make sure View Connection Server is on the right release.

Horizon View 5.2 HTML Access

Right then, let’s crack on with the Horizon View HTML Access.  This can be found from here and at the time of writing the latest release is VMware-Horizon-View-HTML-Access_x64-1.0.0-1049726.exe
