Hello there,

What is the difference between difference between Citrix xendesktop 5.6 controller x86 or x64? When I raan get-brokercontroller on my DDC I got listed the following version for controller:
Controller version - 5.6.5.12
And when I checked in Citrix support, this equates to Citrix XenDesktop 5.6 Controller x86. Is x86 refering to Virtual Desktop version in the machine catalogue (which is Win7 x32 bit)?

Please advise.

Thanks and Regards

As Seth mentioned there is nothing much difference on 32 \ 64 its all about the bit which you use and support.

What I was asking was when I executed get-brokercontroller on my DDC (XD 5.6 on W2K8 R2)  I got listed the following version for controller:
Controller version - 5.6.5.12 which equates to Citrix XenDesktop 5.6 Controller x86.

So my question was Is x86 referring to Virtual Desktop in the machine catalogue (which is Win7 x32 bit)?

Get-BrokerController only gets info on the Controller.  It has nothing to do with Machine Catalogs or Delivery Groups.

For XenDesktop 5.x, Get-BrokerController is not an accurate way of determining the product version.

5.0 shows as 5.0
5.0 SP1 shows as 5.1
5.5 shows as 5.1
5.6 shows as 5.6
5.6 FP1 shows as 5.6.

And the product version has absolutely nothing to do with the controller running a 32-bit or 64-bit OS.

Thanks very much Carl.

Then what is the source of truth to find out what version of of XD and hotfix is installed in DDC so that I can upgrade it to the level XD 56 FP1  (with known issues - http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX140135) to allow compatibility with vShphere 5.5.

I was thinking of installing the latest Hotfix Update 8 attached is the screenshot.

Please advise.

looking in the registry is the only 100% sure way to know version info.
