Configure Citrix WebInterface 5.4 to XenApp 7.15

Hi All,

I know this is not supported but, Is there any way to configure WebInterface 5.4 to XenApp 7? If so, Do I need to install StoreFront? How does the XenApp Studio linked to WebInterface? Basically, we would like to use WebInterface just because we need to use the Secure Access - Network Translation feature which is not longer seen in StoreFront.

Using Web Interface 5.4 with XA/XD 7.x is supported. In WI where you would enter a data collector name, enter the name of a delivery controller. That is it.

Thank you all for your comments. So, all I need to do is to install XenApp 7 roles apart from Storefront right? and then install WI 5.4? Or shall I install WI 5.4 first?

Makes no difference in what order you install. You can configure WI until you have a fully configured Site with a delivery controller.

Managed to fix above issue and installed VDA server OS and now whenever I logged in, I keep getting There are no resources currently available for this user even though I have made sure it's an Administrator and Machine is registered under delivery group. The funny thing is that there's no event viewer errors or warning. Please advice.

That does not work with XA/XD 7.x. You need to use NetScaler. There is a free version that just needs to be relicensed every year.
Carl WebsterCommented:
Citrix does support using Web Interface with XenApp/XenDesktop 7.x but does not support the old Adress Translation or Secure Gateway access methods.
