The installer, Citrix AppDNA.msi, handles first time and upgrade installations for all licensing types. For trial licenses, the installer creates a database that will work with Microsoft SQL Server Express.
You must complete the steps in the Configure AppDNA Environment wizard before you can use AppDNA. The wizard varies according to the type of installation or upgrade:
For production deployments only, you can install AppDNA on a virtual machine. Trial mode installation is not supported on virtual machines.
If you plan to use Install Capture with VMware Workstation, be aware that VMware Workstation requires AppDNA to be installed on the virtual machine’s host machine. This is not possible when AppDNA is itself installed on a virtual machine. If you must install AppDNA on a virtual machine, you can work around this limitation by using the AppDNA Self-Provisioning feature for Install Capture tasks.
If you plan to use Install Capture with a virtualization technology that provides full remote control (such as Citrix XenServer, VMware vSphere, and Microsoft Hyper-V), you can install AppDNA on a virtual machine.
