Tried this app for the first time doesn't work, contacted our systems administrator they reviewed everything and determined there issue with the application because other employees are using the same app from their books without fail.

This app is AMAZING! It works on my chromebook just like it does on my Windows 10 machine. There is no difference plus chrome OS is safer to use than Win10. It's a win-win for me :-)

IT WORKS! It doesn't but it does. As others have stated the way to get it to work is: 1. Download it from the VMWare website (crx file) 2. Right click the CRX file and open it as if it's a zip file. 3. Copy the contents of the CRX file to a new folder elsewhere created by you 4. Navigate to your extensions page in chrome, select switch to Developer mode within the extension tab and load unpacked extension from the folder you created earlier. ***NOTE: For some reason randomly VMWare's customer service portal will just try to redirect me to the store when I select download I'm not sure why but then I googled this specificially ("download vmware horizon crx file") and selected the link to the official VMWare horizon download page clicked download and it began to download the crx file.
