I have a XenApp 6 farm that I'm migrating to XenApp 6.5. One of the apps that I'd published was the Desktop Studio for management of the XenDesktop Environment.

I'm trying to install the 5sp1 console from the installation media and it immediately fails when I run through the installation wizard. Upon examining the installation logs, I've found some interesting lines:

Can I not publish Desktop Studio in 6.5?

Hi,

could you please try the xendesktop 5.5 Desktop Studio for testing but I think you have to stream and you can't install it locally on a xenapp server. Take a look here http://forums.citrix...ssageID=1580953

That article is for XenApp 5. The error message I'm getting seems to imply that Desktop Studio 5 is not supported on XenApp 6.5. It worked fine for me on 6.0.

Hi Joe,

Did you try to install from the "Extras" option?

Thanks,
Charlie

Yes, that is how I installed the software.

1. Run the Autoselect.exe
2. Choose extras
3. Choose Desktop Studio
4. Accept License, click Install

The label at the top of the dialog instantly changes to "The XenDesktop installation has failed. The logs indiciate that the desktop studio is not compatable with XenApp 6.5. If I install on a 6.0 server, it works fine.

Can I manageme my XenDesktop farm from XenApp 6.5??
