Citrix has released hotfix DSCXACmd650WX64001 for XenApp 6.5 and DSCXACmd600W2K8R2X64004 gfor XenApp 6.0.

Here you can find the fixes which come with these releases:

DSCXACmd600W2K8R2X64004 for XenApp 6.0

  • Application enumeration fails for applications that use a 32-bit PNG icon for the application shortcut. To address this issue in its entirety, you must install both a XenApp and a Delivery Services Console hotfix that contains Fix #259922.

    [From DSCXACmd600W2K8R2X64004][#259922]

  • The Get-XASession PowerShell command, used without the -full argument, incorrectly returns a 32-bit color depth.

    [From DSCXACmd600W2K8R2X64004][#LA1126]

  • Attempts to publish streamed applications can fail with just-in-time errors. The issue occurs with applications such as Corel PaintShop Pro that use fully transparent icons.

  3. This release introduces a new Windows Store application called XenApp Manager. XenApp Manager is a lightweight XenApp 6.5 management app that allows XenApp administrators to monitor a XenApp 6.5 farm as well as to disconnect or reset active XenApp sessions. This release enables a new WCF endpoint in the Citrix XenApp Commands Remoting Service. XenApp Manager uses this new endpoint to communicate with the XenApp server using WCF. The new endpoint listens on the same TCP port, 2513, as the existing WCF endpoint.

    To use this application, install this hotfix on at least one XenApp 6.5 server in the farm, and then configure XenApp Manager to communicate with this particular XenApp server.

    The new endpoint is needed to overcome limitations in the WCF client framework available to Windows Store applications. A twin of the existing endpoint “net.tcp://{server}:2513/Citrix/XenAppCommands” but with the “Reliable Session” flag cleared, this endpoint listens at “net.tcp://{server}:2513/Citrix/XenAppCommandsAlt”.

  1. Hi Jack,

    Quick question, are you familiar with the “remote desktop services is currently busy. please try again in a few minutes. other users should be able to login” error on a Xenapp 6.5 server running on SVR 2008 R2 SP1 with several hotfixes from both Citrix and Microsoft installed?

  2. Hi Lysandro,

    I’m not familiar with this problem. Having said this are all users seeing this message when trying to logon to this server? Are there errors reported in the eventlogs when users try to logon and see this message?

    If you want you can let me know and we can look how far we can come on troubleshooting.
