Citrix / JD Edwards in Windows 7

I've been at this company since August where we use JD Edwards ERP8 accessed using Citrix MetaFrame (v 8.0.24737).  We are transitioning from a Windows XP environment to Windows 7.  JD Edwards is being accessed using the XP Virtual Machine for Windows 7 users since the experience has been that "JDE doesn't work under Windows 7."  This doesn't sound right.  It seems we need a version of Citrix that runs under Windows 7.

Any help appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

If JD Edwards is running on a Citrix MetaFrame server (which is not supported by Citrix and servery out of date), then it doesn't matter the version of the OS on the client.

Not sure what you mean by a version of Citrix that runs under Windows 7.  All you need is the Citrix client on the OS of the client.  I would just install the latest version of the Citrix client on the Windows 7 OS's and try and launch the application.

Unless for whatever reason Citrix stop supporting connections in the newer clients to unsupported versions of Citrix XenApp (previously called Presentation Server and then MetaFrame), but I don't think they would.  Granted if something doesn't work you won't get any support from Citrix.  It also may depend on how user's launch the application, but I'd need more details on that (exacts steps to launch on XP and client version).
