Citrix  has released the Beta release of Hotfix Rollup Pack 2 for Citrix XenApp 6.5 for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2. During your evaluation of this product, we invite you to provide feedback, ask questions, and report problems by sending an email to hrpbetaissues@citrix.com. Include any supporting files, such as MSI logs, memory dumps, or screen captures, that may assist us in troubleshooting any issues you may encounter. When testing, we encourage you to mimic your production environment as closely as possible.

Important: While this prerelease version has reached an acceptable level of quality and stability, it is still undergoing testing. Do not apply this prerelease to any live production servers or any servers connected to the production database. The contents of this prerelease are preliminary – Citrix reserves the right to omit fixes contained herein and to include additional fixes in the official, final release.

Uninstalling and upgrading from this prerelease is not supported. Citrix recommends that you rebuild your server before installing the final release and/or before upgrading to the next version of XenApp. This prerelease will not be supported once the official version is released.

Known Installation/Uninstallation Issues

  • For information about the order of deployment to servers in a farm and other helpful best practices guidelines, see Knowledge Center article CTX120842 (Best Practices for Citrix XenApp Hotfix Rollup Pack Installation and Deployment).
  • On some Citrix XenApp servers, silent installation of hotfix rollup packs can fail and installation with UI can display the following error message: “Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000002).” If you are affected by this issue, see Knowledge Center article CTX133014 for more information.
  • If you intend to use the Universal Print Server feature, Citrix recommends that you install the Universal Print Server Client before installing this hotfix rollup pack. Otherwise – if you install the Universal Print Server Client after this hotfix rollup pack – a Windows Security dialog appears while you install the Universal Print Server Client.  If this happens, click “Install this driver software anyway” to finish the installation.
  • While uninstalling this hotfix rollup pack from servers with the Universal Print Server Client installed, you may be prompted for the XenApp 6.5 base installer file (mps.msi), available on the XenApp 6.5 original source media. Also, after uninstalling this hotfix rollup pack, you must uninstall and then reinstall the Universal Print Server Client in order for the client to function properly.
