The Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) opens a virtual Windows-environment where you can access your VIVES-desktop and VIVES-documents library.

Practical information

With the VDI you can open a virtual Windows-environment where you have access to your documents on the server but also all centrally installed applications like Office 365. This is also how Mac users can work in a Windows-environment and use all functionalities of the Office applications.

Click this button to open the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure :

  • Log in with your VIVES username (r-number) and password.
  • Your pc will scan for the Citrix Workspace App (previously called Citrix Receiver). If not detected on your pc, you will be invited to install the app.
  • Now you can enter VDI by clicking on a little, blue computer screen called Office 2019 or Office 365 in the Citrix Storefront.
  • Afterwards a new window with your VIVES-desktop will open. Now you have access to your VIVES-environment (Windows) and applications like Office 2019 or Office 365.

Hint : In Citrix Storefront, choose the Office 365-button as Office 365 automatically contains all updates.
