Citrix reverse seamless application deep dive presentation:

Ilogo recently delivered a presention to the Dutch Citrix User Group and E2EVC on the new technology release by Citrix called ‘Local App Access’.

In this post you will find the presentation deck and two utilities I have written for this technology to help empower the user to configure settings.

Synopsis:

As I mentioned in my presentation, this technology is really cool, but it needs work. For a 1.0 it’s very promising but we need to use it in anger and log the bugs with Citrix to get them fixed. This technology ¬†alike Citrix remote PC is not a silver bullet, but it is a very useful utility in your toolbox for concentrating on the low hanging fruit during a migration.

Don’t let a single user or application in a department hold up user migrations by using this technology to keep the application local until you have time to come back to it.

Question: “You mentioned there’s a work around for getting ‘local app access’ to work without requiring desktop viewer?”

Yes, I’m a complete eejit, in both sessions I told you I would show you a way to get around this…. Then completely forgot! To get this working without needing desktop viewer, rename the cdviewer.exe executable in the ica client program folder to something else!
