When will it be supported? Is there any preview version which supports macos 11.0 now?
I updated my macOS from catalina to big sur, so my working software (vmware horizon client) can't work now...sad
Operating systems are not supported on the Horizon Client until they are released - Mac OS 11 just went into Public Beta and won't be released until this Fall.
Per the VMware employee above, 5.5 is supposed to support Big Sur. That's a different version from 2006. Here's the download page:
Would be very interested to hear your results!
I didn't realize there were 2 different clients. What's the difference? (Or I can look it up later if it's not a quick explanation.)
When searching the web for Horizon client for macOS, the 2006 version is what comes up — and there's no reference to a "5.5." However, I do see 5.x results when searching from VMware's site so I'll try that out today and post back.
Thanks for the clarification!
Okay, I've got Version 5.5.0 (16962730) installed and I'm still not seeing any difference. Auth token definitely isn't redirected and I'm getting "USB Unavailable" from within the connection.
UPDATE: okay, I feel like a complete n00b but: as the saying goes, when all else fails, restart. I had already checked Security & Privacy and everything checked out but this didn't start working until I restarted. Can't believe I didn't try that. #facepalm
Information from GSS:
The latest versions of Horizon Client 5.5 and 8.0 (2006) are not supporting Big Sur.
The next release, which is planned for early 2021 should support it. 😕
While I didn't have much luck with the "2006" release, I've been able to run the 5.5 Horizon client successfully on Big Sur — along with support for USB-based token authentication — both on an Intel-based 2018 MacBook Air and a 2020 M1-based MacBook Air.
Be sure to restart your device after uninstalling 2006 and installing 5.5.
UPDATE: the version I have installed on Big Sur is as follows: Version 5.5.0 (16962730).
