How To – Change the Host Computer

Introduction

Changing your host computer allows you to remove the existing computer from your dashboard and replace it with a different one. This is useful when you reach the limit on the number of host computers for your subscription.

Similarly to the addition of a new host, this process can only be done by a MyQuickCloud admin user.

Step 1 – Un-publish the apps linked to the existing Host computer

To open the apps management console:

  • Click on the “Manage” tab to expand the option list
  • Click on the “Apps” icon

From the apps management screen, un-publish all the Apps linked to the existing Host computer. You can find more details on the un-publish process in the Managing your existing Apps / Desktops article

Step 2 – Remove the existing Host computer

Please Note: For this step, you need to be on the existing Host computer.

  • Open the Control Panel by clicking the “Start” button and then clicking “Control Panel”. Alternatively, you can also search for Control Panel.
  • In the Control Panel, click on “Programs”, and then click on “Programs and Features”.
  • In the list of programs displayed, select MyQuickCloud Host and then click on “Uninstall/Change”

Step 3 – Add new Host computer

Please Note: For this step, you need to be on the new Host computer.
