How to…Create a custom Citrix AppCenter MMC plug-in

MMC 1

  • Click File-Add/Remove Snap-in

MMC snap-in 1

  • Select Citrix AppCenter, click Add then click OK
  • Right click on Citrix AppCenter and select New Window from here

MMC snap-in 2

  • Enable Skip this screen in the future

Config AppCenter discovery 1

  • Adjust components as required

Config AppCenter discovery 2

  • Add LOCALHOST (Means that the console will discover the XenApp farm irrespective what server it’s opened on. Needless to say it won’t work if you use it on a non-XenApp server).

Config AppCenter discovery 3

  • Enable Close this wizard when discovery is successful

Config AppCenter discovery 4

  • Edit the console as required – customise the View settings to remove menus that aren’t needed etc.

MMC 2

  • Adjust the Options – add a name for the console, add an icon, make read only, etc

MMC 3

  • Then click File-Save As to save the .msc file somewhere accessible to all users

(File-Save will write to local profile (%APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools which you’re likely to lose at logoff if you’re not retaining user profiles).

application name" /package:"\\path to streaming profiles share\path to application profile folder\applicationprofilename.profile"

If you want to run a profiled version of Internet Explorer with a specific URL, use /extracmdline”value

see http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX115191 and http://blogs.citrix.com/2009/03/05/app-streaming-running-apps-via-raderun/ for more information

Note: bear in mind there is a 259 character limit to shortcuts which could trip you up if you have particularly long file/folder names and paths.
