Hello there,

Can we install Office 200/2007/2010 suite in Citrix Xenapp server and publish the application in isolation?

That is if we install in 2 x Citrix XenApp servers and publish to users, I want only certain users to access Office 2010 and rest can access Office 2003 and 2007.

Is Application isolation possible?

Please advise.

thanks and Regards

In XenApp 5 for 2003 yes.  I don't use xa5/2008 so I don't know.  Xa6 does not use AIE or it has been deprecated and I can't find it.

I think you answered my question in you earlier comment. YES.
Do you have any article or info as to how I should I go about implementing this:
Plan of action:
10 users need to access Office 2010 suite via Citrix Full Desktop which alread has Office 2003 installed. I need to isolate office 2003 application for these 10 users when they connect to XenApp 4.5 server that only Office 2010 is available.
Please advise.

There is a reason AIE was removed from the product.  I personally would not use it.  AIE was very slow and buggy.  I would recommend you look at Application Streaming instead.
