Configure the VMware Horizon Client to Access Local Files in Windows

The following instructions will guide you through making folders and drives on your local computer (Desktop, My Documents; Dropbox; Google Drive; etc.) available when using virutalized applications running inside the VMware Horizon Client in Windows. This documentation assumes you have already installed the VMware Horizon Client, and have already logged in to Lehigh's virtual software server.

Migrate Contacts from Thunderbird to Gmail

Some retirees / spouses may wish to copy their Address Book, including Lists (also called groups) from Thunderbird to Lehigh Gmail. Below are instructions for exporting addresses from Thunderbird and then importing them into Gmail. You may wish to have a friend, family member, or local tech support person assist you with this task.

Migrate Local Folders from Thunderbird to Lehigh Gmail

PLEASE NOTE: Lehigh does not support using Thunderbird to access your Gmail account for day-to-day use. This document is provided ONLY as a means of moving your Thunderbird Local folders up to the Lehigh Gmail account.

Some people store email messages locally, on the computer hard drive. In Thunderbird these folders are listed below the Lehigh account, under the heading "Local Folders." Depending on the number of folders, this process could take several hours or even longer. We advise migrating only those folders that you want to preserve for future use.

Installing Avast Antivirus Software

Avast Business Security Antivirus provides active, centrally-managed anti-malware protection to Lehigh-owned faculty and staff PCs and Macs. On PCs, it is used in combination with a centrally-managed enterprise version of Malwarebytes that is automatically installed as part of the Windows Update process. All other anti-malware software should be removed (or deactivated, in the case of built-in Windows software that cannot be uninstalled, such as Windows Defender).

Using Stata on the Virtual Site (Windows)

Stata is now available in a virtual environment. It can be run on- or off-campus. Follow these steps to install and configure VMware Horizon Client and VPN, and to access Stata and manage files from your computer.
