I currently use Horizon for my company's employees.
For the master, I used the OS optimization tool and left all the boxes checked.
Afterwards, some of the users complained about the lack of Microsoft's calculator and Photos app.
So I managed to install with the Adguard site the applications with a script (as well as their dependencies, maybe not all of them though).
However, when users click on these applications, it takes a long time to open.
Do you know where it could come from?
Thanks for your help.
The slow opening of applications in your Horizon environment could be caused by several factors. Here are a few possible reasons and solutions to consider:
Resource allocation: Check if the virtual machines (VMs) running the Horizon desktops have sufficient CPU, memory, and storage resources allocated to them. Inadequate resources can result in slow application launch times. Consider adjusting the resource allocation based on the specific requirements of the applications and the number of users accessing the VMs simultaneously.
Network latency: Slow application launch times can be attributed to network latency. If the Horizon infrastructure is hosted remotely or if users are accessing it over a wide area network (WAN), network latency can introduce delays. You can analyze the network connectivity and consider optimizing the network infrastructure to minimize latency.
Application size and dependencies: The size and complexity of the applications you installed, as well as their dependencies, can impact launch times. If the applications have large installation files or numerous dependencies, it may take longer for them to load. Consider evaluating the size and complexity of the applications you installed and ensure that the VMs have adequate storage and processing power to handle them efficiently.
App virtualization approach: The method you used to install the applications might affect their performance. If the applications were installed using a virtualization method that involves streaming or virtualization layers, it could introduce additional overhead and cause delays. Ensure that you are using an efficient and optimized method for virtualizing the applications within your Horizon environment.
Horizon infrastructure configuration: Verify the configuration of your Horizon infrastructure, including the connection server settings, load balancing, and pool settings. Misconfigurations in these areas can impact the performance of the applications. Review the Horizon documentation and best practices to ensure your environment is properly configured.
Performance monitoring and troubleshooting: Implement performance monitoring tools to identify bottlenecks and areas of improvement within your Horizon environment. Analyze the system logs, performance metrics, and any error messages to pinpoint the specific causes of slow application launch times. This will help you narrow down the root cause and apply targeted solutions.
Consider investigating these areas to identify the specific cause of the slow application launch times in your Horizon environment. It may also be beneficial to involve your IT infrastructure team or consult with a Horizon specialist who can provide more specific guidance based on your environment's configuration and requirements.

Sorry for the late response
I couldn't solve the problem...
After many tests, even without the VMware optimization script, the problem remains.
So I didn't want to waste time and installed open-source alternatives to these applications on the VMs.
