The Knowledge Center, http://support.citrix.com, contains links to all documentation. Known issues information is included in the product readme. See Getting Started with Citrix XenApp 5.0 for Windows Server 2008 for information about which features are supported in the XenApp editions.

General Information

The installation of certain XenApp features and components requires Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI) 3.1. The Microsoft Windows Server 2008 system has MSI 3.1 installed. On other supported systems, if MSI 3.1 is not already installed, Autorun installs it, except as noted. During XenApp installation, Autorun automatically installs other software. If you later uninstall this software, some XenApp features may not work properly. If you need to reinstall this software, it is in the Support folder on the XenApp installation media. Certain components require the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Version 1.6.0_5 (also known as Version 6, Update 5). The 32-bit JRE 1.6.0_5 package is available from http://www.java.com. Uninstall any previous versions of JRE before installing the 32-bit JRE 1.6.0_5 package. Important: ○ Both, 32-bit and 64-bit systems require the 32-bit version of the JRE - even on 64bit systems the 32-bit version must be installed. ○ The product installation proceeds even if an incompatible version of the JRE is installed, but a warning is not issued in all cases: When you install the product on top of Version 1.7.x (or later) of the JRE, a warning is issued; a warning might not be issued when you install the product on top of other incompatible versions of JRE.

Autorun requires administrator privileges to install Citrix products. If any of the prerequisites are not met for a feature, Autorun reports a fatal error but continues to install those features whose prerequisites are met. To use Autorun to install applicable XenApp components on a Windows 2000 system, before you begin the installation, obtain the gdiplus.dll file from the Microsoft Web site at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=6A63AB9C-DF12-4D41933C-BE590FEAA05A&displaylang=en. Download and run gdiplus_dnld.exe on the local server and copy gdiplus.dll in the winnt\system32 folder. Then start Autorun. The following Citrix commands do not work correctly in XenApp 5.0 for Windows Server 2008:

query citrix

○ query farm ○ query server Instead, the following error message appears when you run these commands: Invalid parameter(s) The issue results from a design change in Windows Server 2008 and in Windows Vista SP1 that prevents the XenApp installer from modifying the values of some subkey entries of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal

Server\Utilities\query as necessary. To prevent this issue, Citrix recommends that you install Microsoft Hotfix 958652, available from http://support.microsoft.com, before installing XenApp 5.0.
