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.

"Secure Access - Network Translation feature which is not longer seen in StoreFront."

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.

Citrix does support using Web Interface with XenApp/XenDesktop 7.x but does not support the old Adress Translation or Secure Gateway access methods.
