StoreFront Launcher PowerShell script

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Citrix

I’ve announced it during E2EVC in Sydney: I’ve started a new project on GitHub! This project is based on a PowerShell script running on a client device. Instead of providing the URl of the StoreFront server to the user, you ask them to launch a shortcut to this script.

XenDesktop 7.12 – Machine tag restrictions

I’ve been working on some large Xendesktop 7.x deployments up to 40 000 users and one of the main issue encountered with those large infrastructures was the lack of agility of the Delivery Groups.

How to become a myCUGC leader!

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Citrix

Last Wednesday it was the first event of the French Citrix User Group Community. If I trust the different feedbacks, everyone enjoyed and asked for a new one: we are working on it!

We have been talking about creating something in France since almost the beginning of the CUGC program in May 2015. Talking is easy, implementing is another thing! […]
