Citrix AppDNA tip: having install troubles with your Desktop Client?


Have a really beefy project land on my lap relating to application migrations and Windows 10 so looking to utilize AppDNA (version 7.11) to assist. With that in mind wanted to install the AppDNA Desktop Client on my machine in order to have quick and easy access but hit issues with the install.

Trying to install the Desktop Client and getting a cannot start Application message “Application cannot be started. Contact the application vendor”

If I click Details down in the error summary section it gives an error

Failed to load the runtime. (Exception from HResult: 0x80131700)

Had a google about and a lot of posts seem related to .Net Framework issues.

Noticed had .Net Framework 4.51 already installed on the system and was on the supported .Net Framework versions.

Noticed too that .Net 4.6 .1 (URL was supported, downloaded and installed it and what you know worked a charm :).

Hope shaved a few mins off someones day mucking about looking for a fix.
