Citrix XenApp 6.0/6.5 and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2
I highly recommend to install service pack 1 for Server 2008 R2 because it fixes several Remote Desktop Service (Terminal Service) issues that are also affecting XenApp. Read the following KB for Known Issues CTX126711 with SP1 and CTX129241.

I also highly recommend installing the Rollup Pack 1 for XenApp 6.0 and XenApp 6.5. See also Citrix recommended Microsoft and Citrix Hotfixes for XenApp 6 and Windows Server 2008 R2 at CTX129229

Citrix XenApp 6.0/6.5 update script
I modified my existing update script just for XenApp 6.0 on Server 2008 R2. The script will not work with older versions of XenApp. Also the script is not downloading or applying components like the role manager etc.

Download the script here: XA6xUpdate_v1.6.zip

Citrix XenApp 6.0/6.5 things to know:

Citrix XenApp 6.0/6.5 and Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Citrix XenApp 6.0 / 6.5 bug list:

Windows Server 2008 R2 bug list:

  • Shadowing users with multi monitor is not possible right now and therefore also NOT for XenApp 6.0, this is really a pain for support personal
    Error: Shadow failed. Error code 7044
  • Annoying “Single-click” folder option for users on Server 2008 R2
    The group policy “Classic Shell activate” (Windows-Explorer) should fix that by enabling it but actually you should disable it! Then users have to set the folder option back and forth or you can set a registry value to do it for the users.
