Install flash on Windows 2012 Server

I ran across an issues when I install Horizon View 6.0 on a windows 2012 R2 server.  I open the View Administrator console and was greeted with you have to enable flash because Windows 2012 already has it loaded in the system.

You need to enable Desktop Experience. Below are two ways to add this roles.

To add the Desktop Experience feature using Microsoft Powershell:

Run these Microsoft PowerShell commands with an Administrator account:

import-module ServerManager 
Add-WindowsFeature -name Desktop-Experience,qWave -IncludeAllSubFeature -IncludeManagementTools

Reboot the Windows server.

To add Desktop Experience using the Server Manager:

Open Server Manager.
Click Add roles and features.
Click Next until you see the Features section.
Expand the User Interfaces and Infrastructure and select Desktop Experience.
In the Features Summary section, click Add Features.
Click Desktop Experience.
Click Next.
Click Install and respond to the wizard prompts to complete the wizard.

Now you can continue with your View deployment.
