Hello, I have used previous versions of XenApp (presentation server), and have installed the applications, and then published the app/.exe in presentation server via the console. I have now installe a Windows 2008 R2 server, installed Citrix licensing and imported my licensing just fine, installed the streaming profiler, and workflow studio. Now I am ready to install my applications like Office, etc. Do I just install them as normal on the server or what do I do? Any help is much needed!

Pretty much just install, update, and publish.

1. Install your application on the XenApp server.  Make sure the server is in INSTALL mode using the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel applet.

2. Create an Active Directory security group used to govern who has access to the published application.

3. Publish the application through the Delivery Services Console associating the security group created in step #2.
