-- In previous versions of Citrix, the Administrator will install Applications on Citrix servers then publish them to End Users. I wonder if it is the same now with XenApp 7 (Apps are installed on XenApp server or they can be installed on different windows server, which does not have Citrix installed) ?

--There is also XenDesktop 7, I wonder if the administrator can publish applications only, are S/He will have to publish the desktop along with the Application. If that's the case, I would like to know   if the Application has to be installed on the Desktop that is published or can be installed somewhere else ?

Any Citrix Experts to shade some lights on this ?

Thanks

The only difference between XenApp 7.x and XenDesktop 7.x is what your license allows you to use.
http://carlwebster.com/installing-xenapp-xendesktop-7-x-matter-one-select/

XenApp 7.x allows you to publish server OS hosted desktops, server OS hosted apps and desktop OS hosted apps (aka the old VM hosted apps).

XenDesktop 7.x adds the ability to do Remote PC and desktop OS hosted desktops.

On a server OS you would install apps as you always have.
On a desktop OS you would install apps as you always have.

IN Xendsktop 7, you will have to create Machine Catalog before you publish an Application through creation of Delivery Group. That's the only way I have seen how to deploy Applications in Xendesktop..

Apparently Xendektop (for instance Platinum) has all Xenapp features and More

I need to find out about this :
 in previous version of XenApp Apps are installed on XenApp server itself, I wonder if it is the same now with XenApp 7 (Apps are installed on XenApp server or they can be installed on different windows server, which does not have Citrix installed at all) ?

It is the same, apps need to be installed on the XenApp 7.x server IF the applications requires an installer.  For example, you cannot run Microsoft Office from a server that does not have the XenApp 7.x VDA installed (and therefore the RDS role installed).

Some applications, like PuTTY, do not require an installer and are simply an EXE file.  That EXE file can be run from ANY location the XenApp 7.x server has access to and the user has permissions to access the location.

I would assume the same could be said of portable apps like the ones that can be installed on a thumb drive.

I will come back to Citrix Questions, whenever I start re-using my Citrix LAB.

Thank you.
