Tips for installing applications on session host and golden image

Applies to: Nerdio Private Cloud (NPC) and Nerdio For Azure (NFA) Professional and Enterprise customers only

When you install a program on an RDS or WVD host, the program is available to all users that connect to the session host. Similarly, when you install programs on the golden desktop image, any dedicated desktops spawned from the golden image will include those programs.

Consider the following tips when you are installing programs on a session host or golden image:

  1. Copy the installer to a local drive, such as C:\Temp
  2. Always run the installer as an administrator. For example, you can right click on the installer and choose "Run as administrator".
  3. If the installer is not an exe file, launch command prompt as administrator, change path to the location of the installer file and run the file from command prompt.
  4. Perform windows updates and allow significant time for the background processes to settle out and CPU to return to idle before proceeding.
