XenApp 7.6 in vMware Workstation

Del Campbell


Hello Citrix forum, I am building a dirty lab for testing XenApp 7.6, so just my own POC for learning.


1xDC | Windows Server 2019 |  4GB RAM | 60GB HD

1x XenApp01 | Windows Server 2016 | 4GB RAM | 60GB HD


I've been able to install Delivery Controller and Studio, but when the install moves to Director I get the following error and, the log is not telling me much:


Citrix.MetaInstaller.MetaInstallerException Installation of MSI file 'DesktopDirector.msi failed with code 'InstallFailure' (1603)


1) I thought perhaps it was ram, so upgraded the vRAM from 2GB to 4GB - do not resolve

2) I thought perhaps for a lab, Director does not like being on the same server as Delivery Controller and Studio, so built another XenApp02, but get the same error


Adding error in case I am missing something
