Field tip: Integrating ThinApp with Xenapp? watch where you store your app


ThinApp 3.x being used to virtualize Internet Explorer 6

Xenapp 6.5 HRP05

Citrix Profile Management 5.2

After virtualization published as a citrix published application, on launch it would appear to launch all the way – run through pieces licensing/policies etc but disappear – in fact the session would appear on the Citrix farm but not on the client. Turns out during application capturing specifying the default “user profile (%AppData\Thinstall) was to blame – specifying Custom location and network share resolved.

As such came to this conclusion as using admin-level privileges would launch application no problem via xenapp (twigged profile management then as administrators were not set to to be UPM-enabled).
