If you are running Citrix XenApp to publish applications including Microsoft Office, what licenses are needed?  Since this is XenApp and not XenDesktop, I thought you only need RDS CALs (not server CALs too), and for Microsoft Office, I'm not sure...

you will always need Windows Server User CAL and a Remote Desktop Services User CAL for Xenapp which is running on server.

Office license is per Endpoint, so you will need Office license per connecting User.

here is the URL that explains.

So XenApp needs Server CALs and RDS CALs?  I thought since it was 'App' only and not 'Desktop', it didn't need Server CALs?  Thanks in advance!

You need to have RDS CAL to use XenApp, there no specific published apps or published desktop type license..
