Citrix XenApp Publishing Extensions 2.0
The XenApp Publishing Extensions 2.0 are two tools that enable easy publication of applications to your XenApp 4.5 or 5.0 farm.
The first tool, CitrixXenAppPe, is an updated version of the original version posted by Shannon Ma, who worked for Citrix at tht time. This tool supports the easy publishing to the farm using an existing shortcut to the application on a server. Version 2.0 of this tool fixes an issue with publishing from shortcuts that are App-V virtual application shortcuts, an issue that caused the Citrix Published App to have a "black box" for an icon. A video demo using version 1.0 of the tool exists, and operation remains unchanged in version 2.0.
The second tool, Citrix.XenApp.PublishFromAppV, is a new alternative publishing tool that only works with App-V virtual applications. This tool supports the easy publishing to the farm using the information already stored in the App-V client. This tool is started from the start menu, and the interface is just like the shortcut tool, except that it will enumerate the App-V applications present on the server and allow you to select which are to be published.
Both of these tools work with XenApp 4.5 and 5.0, but not 6.0 due to changes in the Citrix SDKs. When working with App-V, the tools support App-V deployments using App-V 4.1 through at least 4.6, no matter how the App-V apps were deployed (using the App-V Management Server, SCCM is used
Note: The fix for icons for App-V may be needed for any application that uses a "launcher" program. It is possible to further modify the code to support other launchers. Inside of MfcommAppProvider.cs, you can locate the following line:
It should be possible to add an else clause for other launcher programs.
