How To – Reinstall Your Host

Introduction

In rare circumstances it can become necessary to reinstall the host program. This is very similar to changing the host machine or adding a new one and can only be done by a MyQuickCloud admin user.

Step 1 – Un-publish the apps linked to your Host installation

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 installation

Please Note: For this step, you need to be on the 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 – Reinstall the Host computer

Add the new Host computer to your cloud by following the How To Add A Host article. Make sure you reboot your host machine after the installation is complete.

Step 4 – Republish your Apps

More details on the publishing of an app in the How To Publish An Application article.
