Citrix Group Policy Modeling Wizard Error

When running the Citrix Group Policy Modeling Wizard from my local PC via Group Policy Management console, receiving error, "Failed to connect to back-end server 'localhost' on port 80 using binding WSHttp. The server may be off-line or may not be running the appropriate service.

It seems that the Wizard just needs to be pointed to the right servers in our XenApp 7.6 environment. I'm not sure where this is done. Citrix Studio is running correctly from this PC but I was able to tell it where to connect.

Did you install the Citrix Group Policy module on the PC?

d:\x64\Citrix Policy\Citrix GroupPolicyManagement_x64.msi (_x32 if 32 bit)

I've got DLLs in this path: C:\Program Files\Citrix\Group Policy\Management

And this path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\Group Policy\Management

I can't find the file in the path you describe. Should that be on one of the servers? The install media?

Sorry, that is from the 7.6 ISO file I mounted to find the location.

Apparently, yes, I've already got it installed. Again... it appears that it's just not configured to communicate to the right server. It's trying to connect to "localhost".

Unfortunately, I am on-site all week and have no way to test this until Saturday.

Got with Citrix support and they showed me that, due to all the connections needed from the Citrix databases, unless XenApp is installed on a system and connected to the databases, Policy Modeling will not work. Because of this, it must be run on a server where DDC is installed.
