How to Access your Virtual Computer from Anywhere

Access Your Virtual Machine from Any Computer – Web Browser

This option is best if you are on a public computer and just want to log in to your machine once or twice (I.e. travelling and in a hotel business center). You will use an internet browser to get to your virtual machine.

  • Open an internet browser and type in the web address: pwrcloudvdi.azworld.com 
  • Click on VMware Horizon HTML access
  • Enter your user name and password. Make sure the domain is PwrCloudQB. Click Login.
  • Your virtual desktop will load. When you are done working, be sure to click disconnect, and then log off. It is important to do this so that your machine will load correctly when you are back at your regular computer.

  • Click on Install VMware Horizon Client

  • Click Run when promptedFollow the prompts from the VMware Horizon Client Setup Wizard and agree to the terms of the License Agreement.
