    I’ve been installing Citrix going back to WinFrame on Server 3.51. I’ve never had so many install issues as I was with XenApp 7.5, with little to no help from Citrix support docs. I found out the hard way my License server on XenApp 6.5 isn’t supported in this version so I had to install a instance of SQL locally as well.
    This doc cleared things up quite a bit, I appreciate you taking the time to produce it.
