Hi, I'm new to packaging especially packages on Citrix platform. I am packaging Globe Software Atlas 5.1 for MS Dynamics AX (client) and it will be deployed onto a Citrix server which is on MS server 2008 R2. The package installed some configuration files on administrator's appdata folder. how should I deal with the config files then? Can I use Active Setup just like on WinXP? Thanks for all your help in advance!

Answer Summary:
Write ActiveSetup to call VBScript/Batch script which will copy this config file to User's AppData folder.

Citrix Environment does not support self-heal.. So, you have to write ActiveSetup to call VBScript/Batch script which will copy this config file to User's AppData folder.

  • By the way.. Why are you installing Client application on Server
  • thanks for your help. I do not know much about Citrix. That's what I was told. The client gets installed onto Citrix server or terminal server (I do not know which one it is), then normal users can access the client on Citrix platform.

    I will try your solution.

The MS best practise for Dynamic's large enviroment is to have the config file centrally, which by groups can be controlled for read rights.
Then the shortcuts just point to that/those config files, example:

...\ax32.exe "\\remoteserver\readable_share\config_file.axc"

This way you never need to give attention to the client's and the config files are everywhere the same.
