Hello there,

I am using PvS version 6 and streaming XenApp 6.5 servers on VMware. I have set the vDisk to standard mode and to cache on the Target Device's hard drive Drive


When I tried to launch third party applications installed SureTrak/Oracle/Expert Estimation application(s) within Citrix Full desktop hosted from XA 6.5 VM servers, I am getting following error (as attached in the screenshot), which is saying that C:\ProgramFiles\<App> is not in RW mode.

Please advise how should I go about fixing this? No issue when I launched Office 2010, and other third party app Asta PowerProject applications.


Thanks and Regards.

Looks like you need to set a persistent disk for your images.  That means creating and attaching a 2nd hard disk to your VMs, install the program onto that persistent disk and see if the program will now work.

Bu other applications launch OK like MS OFFICE 2010 and other third party apps

Doesn't matter.  Some apps require things other apps do not.  If you use AV and or EdgeSight, those two apps require a persistent disk.
If you have vendor support for the application reach out and see if they'll tell you which part of the application requires a writable drive and if that piece can be moved, otherwise as Carl said you probably need to install that application onto a persistent drive so the software can function as it's developers intended it to...Just a matter of how the code is written, most developers don't think of read-only disks.
