Install client Application in Citrix Xenapp server

Install client Application in Citrix Xenapp server

We have business server application installed in windows 2008 that has its SQL database in separate windows 2008 server

Users work remotely, I need to install the client application in Citrix Xenapp Server, so that when users click on the icon of the Application it will open up their Login window (which is Active Directory login) then they can login and open up the application, the data they add or change in the application will get saved in SQL database server.

Well, From Citrix standpoint, what do I need to install in Citrix Xenapp servers ?

Thanks

I mean on Citrix Xenapp server
Do I need to install ODBC on Xenapp server then open up ODBC and create/configure DSN that points to SQL server and the proper database?

I do not understand when you day "Export Information " and the rest ?

Can you please  lay out the necessary steps , so that I do not get confused ?

Thanks

I have published some flat applications and I did not have to export or import any registery key. example word,excel,etc...

howevere some applications are 3 tier apps, they consists of:

Database server, Application server, and Application Client.


On Citrix Xenapp, all we need is the Application client to be installed. in this case I wonder if anything else will go with that Application.

I believe the way you install an application on Workstation, you will install it the same way on Xenapp Server.
if it requires ODBC install on the workstation, you will install ODBC on Xenapp server.

you misunderstood my statement
let 's forget about Citrix for a moment.

If you have a server application on wondows 2008 and SQL Database on another windows 2008, all you need to install on Windows 7 is the Client Application and probably the ODBC.


now let 's go back to the picture where Citrix Xenapp server is implemented, you will do the same install as the one done on windows7 , install the client application and probably ODBC.. That way you do not need to install anything on windows workstations other than Citrix Client(receiver)

Correct?
