  24. 24. FAQs 24
  25. 25. © 2014 Citrix. Confidential.25 Q: Web Interface support is coming back but what product versions will it be supported with? A: Web Interface 5.4 will be supported with XenApp 7.5 and XenDesktop 7.x. The recommendation is still to leverage StoreFront as Web Interface is being phased out.
  26. 26. © 2014 Citrix. Confidential.26 Q: What am I entitled to with AppDNA in Platinum licenses? A: Customers can use AppDNA for all of their apps though the focus is on virtualizing the apps.
  27. 27. © 2014 Citrix. Confidential.27 Q: If I’m at XenApp 6.5 now with active SA can I use XenApp 7.5? A: Yes. Active SA is all that is required. The SA date for the product is March 19th.
  28. 28. © 2014 Citrix. Confidential.28 Q: What options do I have for legacy apps on Server 2003 R2? A: Since XenApp licenses are versionless and tied to dates, a current XenApp license that is valid for XenApp 7.5 will also work with 6.x and 5.x versions. Standing up a XenApp 5 farm along side a XenApp 7.5 site could be one option for Server 2003 support. With XenApp Enterprise and Platinum licenses, another option is VM-hosted apps to deliver apps from Windows XP VDAs (which is similar to 2003 R2 but not as scalable as RDS).
  29. 29. © 2014 Citrix. Confidential.29 Q: Will Windows XP still be available as a VDA option even with end-of-life approaching? A: Windows XP VDAs will continue to work with the 5.6 VDA. Microsoft ended support for XP on April 8, 2014 though so Citrix also no longer supports it.
