Multiple WorxMail Instances
Published by Jens Trendelkamp on 10/16/2014 | 0 Comments | 136 Views

There are several circumstances where you want to offer Multiple WorxMail Instances with preconfigured Application Settings. For example a WorxMail Version for your Microsoft Exchange Users and another Version for your Lotus Notes Users. If you just import a second Version of WorxMail in your AppController and only changing the Application Name you will experience some problems. With this hack you will be able to offer your Users preconfigured Multiple WorxMail Instances. But it is still not possible to use both Versions of this App on the same Device at the same Time.

Automated Application Wrapping
Published by Jens Trendelkamp on 10/14/2014 | 0 Comments | 223 Views

If you are deploying and/or managing Citrix XenMobile Environments one small part of work you have to deal with is the Application Wrapping. If you do have to do this often because of new Application Versions or you have to wrap the Applications for multiple Customers you will be quite quickly annoyed by the Citrix MDX Toolkit GUI.

WindowServer: _CGXGLDisplayContextForDisplayDevice: No matching context for device – disabling OpenGL) i started to use to MDX Toolkit CLI.

Published by Carsten Bruns on 08/18/2014 | 0 Comments | 1,121 Views

Some of you know about the ShareFile Outlook Plugin. A really cool Plugin for Outlook to send and receive file directly from Outlook. A customer asked me if it is possible to configure the Plugin for a separate group of user. He wants to use the Plugin for a group of key users on terminal servers.

The following Step-by-step guide will help you to configure your ShareFile Outlook Plugin (OLP) by using a group policy object for one or more specific groups. It can be used for XenApp Servers or Client PCs. In my case, I’ve configured it for XenApp Servers.

I was asked how to modify the WorxApp Icons to match the Cooperate Identity Policy. To accomplish this you will need a Mac with XCode installed, an Image Editor like Gimp and of course the .ipa file you want to modify.

Let´s start with extracting the icons from the .ipa file. If you do this by simply extracting the images from the .ipa file you will get the following error in Gimp and similar Programs.
