PCoIP Standard Agent for Windows Installation Guide

Before you proceed with installation, a few prerequisites must be met.


These instructions assume you have already built the remote desktop machine, and that the machine meets the agent's requirements.

A few other things to confirm before proceeding:

  • The desktop machine requires the following ports to be open: TCP 443, TCP 60443, TCP 4172, and UDP 4172.

  • You should be able to run applications as an administrator.

  • The PCoIP Agent must be able to execute PowerShell scripts. If your PowerShell execution policy set to Restricted, the execution policy will be automatically changed so installation can proceed. If the agent cannot execute PowerShell scripts or change the execution policy, the installation will fail.

  • On Windows 2008 R2 or Windows 7 desktops, the PCoIP Agent must be able to simulate Secure Attention Sequence. SAS is enabled by setting a Windows GPO variable as described here.

  • If you are using a PCoIP Local License Server, you'll need to know it's URL and port numbers.
