Anyware Standard Agent for Windows 24.03

This documentation is intended for administrators who are deploying the Standard Agent for Windows as part of an HP Anyware deployment. It assumes thorough knowledge of conventions and networking concepts, including firewall configuration.

Command-line tools are required

Although many agent features and settings can be configured using the Windows user interface, some administrative tasks require use of Windows command line tools. Users should be familiar with both cmd and PowerShell.

About the Anyware Standard Agent for Windows

The Anyware Standard Agent for Windows is part of HP Anyware. It enables users to deliver virtual Windows desktops or custom applications to remote users. End users connect to their virtual desktops with a Anyware client, either directly or via a connection broker.

Administrators can optionally allow end users to customize their desktops and install or uninstall applications.

Typical end users of the Anyware Standard Agent include task workers and knowledge workers who need a Windows desktop, but do not require high-end GPU-powered graphics applications.

A deployed Standard Agent for Windows requires these components:

  • A host machine which provides the desktop to remote clients. The host can be physical or virtual, in the cloud, or in a data center. See System Requirements for more information.
  • The Standard Agent for Windows software installed on the host machine.
