Terminal Services Windows 2003 vs Windows 2008 vs Citrix
Posted on 2011-09-28
We have an application that is locally installed on all our WXPSP3 workstations.
We are moving to Windows7 and the application doesn't run under this type of OS.
We would like to use TS in order to publish the application and have our users connect to it.
We would like to use TS Windows 2008 R2 but the problem is that the application can not be installed on Windows 7 so we will not be able to install it on a Windows 2008R2 server either.
That being said, is it possible to run a TS mix env. in which you will have TS 2003 servers (where the application will be installed) and Windows 2008R2 to still get advantage of things like RemoteApp, etc.?
Finally if we wanted to use Citrix to publish the application what do you need to be looking at? Can we install the app on Windows 2003 and use the latest release of whatever Citrix product is available in the market to publish the application?
