Need 2 different Citrix apps to coexist on my netbook
Posted on 2011-10-01
I am trying to set up my netbook so that I can use some of my work software that I presently use on my regular laptop. On my laptop, I am able to have both Citrix products installed and working independent of one another.
I already had the ICA client running on the netbook, but when I went to install XenAppHosted.msi (received from my employer), I received the error message:
At least one client component is already in use. Before running Setup, please exit any of the following programs that may be running.
Citrix XenApp Plugin
Program Neighborhood Connectin Center
Remote Application Manager.
I followed the instructions from a website that explained how to remove the ICA client, including deletion of folders and changes to two different registry entries. That worked and I was sucessful in getting XenAppHosted.msi to install and it worked flawlessly. However, for other business applications, I still needed to have the ICA Client back, so I went to the website that explains how to install it,, which was effectively just clicking on a link and then it installed. That program ran fine as well, however it uninstalled the XenAppHosted.msi app in the process!
How is it that this has not happened on my regular laptop? I know that everyone else in my company uses both apps with them coexisting and even running simultaneously.
