XenApp - Install and Publish SQL Server Management Studio


Citrix XenApp SQL Server Management Studio Installation

Versions I am working with:
  • OS: Server 2008 R2 Standard 64-bit
  • Citrix: XenApp 6.5
  • SQL: SQL Server 2008 R2 Management Studio
Below was the error I was receiving when trying to install SSMS:
  • “Another version of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 has been detected on this system that must be updated to SP1. Please update all Visual Studio 2008 installations to SP1 level, by visiting Microsoft update.”



First off, "DO NOT REMOVE CITRIX". That is not a required step. Even if you saw that on some Citrix forum. You just need to install Visual Studio and Visual Studio SP1. To accomplish this:
  • Install Visual Studio
    • E:\1033_ENU_LP\x64\Setup\vs_shell.msi
  • Install Visual Studio SP1
    • E:\1033_ENU_LP\x64\Setup\VS90sp1-KB945140.msp

SQL Server Management Studio will now install without any issues. If you want to publish it via Citrix just point you app towards:
  • "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\Binn\VSShell\Common7\IDE\Ssms.exe"
