Whitepaper: How to create a virtual IGEL Thin Client on Microsoft Hyper-V

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015

Hello Folks,

very often I’ve been asked how to create a virtual IGEL Thin Client, this was mostly related to Microsoft Hyper-V Server coming with Windows 8.x and soon with Windows 10.

So here is a new Whitepaper available that shows how you have to create and install the VM and how the license from IGEL can be applied. The Whitepaper is available here: How to create an IGEL Universal Desktop OS Test VM on Microsoft Hyper-V
