This Fling has been integrated into the Horizon product! Please see Configuring a Digital Watermark for more information.


Desktop Watermark is a Windows native application that adds a watermark to a desktop for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) auditing or exhibition purposes. A watermark has the ability to be visible or invisible. Invisible watermarks, seen in the screenshot, can be revealed by a tool bundled in the Fling. The tool should be configured by an administrator and enforced on the end user's desktop.

Visible Watermark


  •  Horizon Client and/or Horizon View Agent 
  •  Administrator privileges
  •  .NET framework 4.5/4


This is a standalone Windows native application and standard MSI installer provided.

For VDI scenario: Domain Administrator install/configure the Desktop Watermark application in the VM template, and then refresh the pool.

Using Invisible Watermark:

  1. Check "Invisible Watermark" checkbox when you do the configuration using Desktop Watermark Configuration tool
  2. Screenshot with invisible watermark can be revealed using bundled tool "Reveal.exe" in installed directory of the program

For more information, see VMware Desktop Watermark Guide-v4.pdf
