Web Interface 5.2 Client deployment

Posted on February 24th, 2010

Web Interface 5.2 uses a different folder structure for auto client deployment.

During the installation of Web Interface it asks for the clients folder and copies this to the website location however if it copies from the clients folder on an older XenApp CD/DVD the copied structure is wrong and must be changed to work properly. Also if WI is upgraded from a previous version the structure is not changed.

However, If copied from the XenApp 5 Feature Pack 2 CD the structure is correct, but most users would be upgrading from a previous version and therefore have to fix this afterwards.

The new folder structure is as follows:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\Web Interface\Version\Clients

* \de\Unix
Place the Clients for UNIX installation files (solaris.tar.Z, sol86.tar.Z) with German language support in this folder.

* \en\Unix
Place the Clients for UNIX installation files (solaris.tar.Z, sol86.tar.Z) with English language support in this folder.

* \es\Unix
Place the Clients for UNIX installation files (solaris.tar.Z, sol86.tar.Z) with Spanish language support in this folder.

* \fr\Unix
Place the Clients for UNIX installation files (solaris.tar.Z, sol86.tar.Z) with French language support in this folder.

* \ja\Unix
Place the Clients for UNIX installation files (solaris.tar.Z, sol86.tar.Z) with Japanese language support in this folder.

* \Java
Place the Client for Java files in this folder.

* \Linux
Place the Citrix Receiver for Linux installation file (linuxx86-11.0.140395.tar.gz) in this folder.

* \Mac\Web Online Plug-in
Place the Citrix online web plug-in for Macintosh installation file (Citrix online plug-in (web).dmg) in this folder.

* \Windows\Offline Plug-in
Place the Citrix offline plug-in installation file (CitrixOfflinePlugin.exe) in this folder.

* \Windows\Online Plug-in
Place the Citrix online plug-in web installation file (CitrixOnlinePluginWeb.exe) in this folder.
