Step 9 – installing Citrix ReceiverTM on the client devices

Now that the virtual desktop and application's infrastructure have been built, you need to access these from the StoreFront server using the Citrix Receiver on the client. This can be done using the following steps:

  1. Log in to the client device with administrator privileges.

    Note

    This is the end user device, such as a laptop, workstation, thin client, or even a mobile device. This is not the virtual desktop or master images we created in the previous steps.

  2. Mount the XenDesktop installation media.

    Tip

    You can use XenDesktop .iso to burn a DVD to mount in the client drive; however, I find it is easier to mount the .iso image on the machine using Virtual CloneDrive, http://www.slysoft.com/en/virtual-clonedrive.html ...
