We have Citrix servers Xenapp 4.5 on 2003 server, publishing the server Desktop to users.  I am trying to stream Excel 2007 with some add-ins to those servers

Couple of questions:
1- On the machine that has Citrix Streaming Profile does it has to have Xenapp installed? Or the Profiler only will be fine?
2- The server s that I will be streaming Excel to, has Excel 2007 already installed, I am planning to stream that second Excel with add-ins in Isolated environment, so the users can run the installed Excel and the streamed together… should I installed Excel 2007 on the machine that has Citrix profile?
3- What in the best way to stream Excel with Add-ins (that add-ins requires installation) to xenapp servers?

I already went though http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX115999

Thanks!

1- No you won't need Xenapp installed on the profile server. It is better to keep it clean as possible, streamed profile installation only should be fine.

2- Yes both Excel installed and streamed can work fine together on the same machine.

i think all you need to stream excel is in that article.... the MCP that you will be creating, configure it to have only excel installed .

Thanks for that!

I managed to stream it, but after lunching it there were couple of messages about disabled micros and add-ins. tried to enable it but it is greyed out. Do you have an idea how to change that?
Commented:
You should be able to modify office package and the security settings there; there is a section for Micros and Add-ins.
Also you should be able to enable that within Excel application while you packaging it with the profiler.
