So at the moment we’re testing a lot of new devices in combination with our XenApp 6.5/NetScaler infra, which ofcourse is a lot of fun. I ran into this problem, which I thought was poorly documented. So there we go…. You get the well known error “You do not have the proper encryption level to access this Session” when firing up your app. using the new HTML5 receiver (eg. with Chrome or Opera or Firefox).

Today I ran into a nice one installing XenApp 6.5 on a fresh Server 2008R2 installation. When clicking on the part to install the XenApp server role I got a popup saying StartupIndicator.exe exited with error code -1. In the logfile I found 2 different errors:

So this was not a nice one we encountered recently. Users throughout our whole farm got application freezes. Users literally got ‘Citrix not Responding’ messages on application launch or when trying to access printers. In the application eventlog WFICA32.EXE Application Hangs (event 1002) were generated with data: ‘The program WFICA32.EXE stopped interacting with Windows and was closed.’

We’re currently decommissioning our W2K3 servers. Part of the process is to move the datastore to a W2K8R2/SQL2008R2 server. Easy job, documented well. Here’s to another document about it 😎

Everybody agrees that the install of XenApp 6 has progressed a lot. Where you needed to complete a long wizard in the near past, now it’s just a matter of a few clicks and your XenApp installation is finished. After that the real work starts when you need to configure your server. However Citrix managed to keep your serverconfig real simpel as well, so it really isn’t a big deal. The same applies to the command line installation. You still need to include a lot of parameters in your script, only this time they’re more logical, and you need less.
So let’s get to do some installation work …………
