Dec 08, 2016

You can install the AppDNA Self-Provisioning client on any type of machine (virtual, physical, or VDI). 

Supported operating systems

  • Microsoft Windows 8.1 (32-bit and 64-bit editions)
  • Microsoft Windows 8 (32-bit and 64-bit editions)
  • Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 (32-bit and 64-bit editions)
  • Microsoft Windows Vista SP2 (32-bit and 64-bit editions)
  • Microsoft Windows XP SP3 (32-bit)
  • Microsoft Windows XP SP2 (64-bit)
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2016
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2012
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 SP2 (32-bit and 64-bit editions)
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2003 SP2 (32-bit and 64-bit editions)

When capturing Windows applications for testing Windows compatibility, the operating system (OS) on the Self-Provisioning client machine should match the OS on which the applications are currently running. For example, if you are preparing for a migration from Windows XP to Windows 8.1, the OS should be based on Windows XP. However, when using Self-Provisioning to create App-V sequences or XenApp packages, the OS should normally match the target OS.

Pre-requisites

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1
  • Installers provided with AppDNA:
    • Citrix AppDNA Self-Provisioning Client.msi
    • Citrix AppDNA VM Configuration.msi

    The 32-bit installers are in C:\Program Files\Citrix\AppDNA\Tools. The 64-bit installers are in C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\AppDNA\Tools.

Note: Some execution profiles require additional software to be installed on the Self-Provisioning client machine. For example, to create App-V sequences, the App-V sequencer must be installed. Similarly, to create XenApp profiles, the XenApp profiler must be installed. This additional software is provided separately from AppDNA.
