Hello,
 
I need to know about Citrix Servers. What are they?
 
I have a client who is asking the question:
 
"With the possible windows 10 issue can the software run on a citrix server running server 2008, server 2012 or server 2016?"
 
The "software" he's talking about is a desktop application we produced. He asked me if we will be releasing a Windows 10 version of the software to which I said "probably." Now he's asking this question.
 
I don't know what Windows 10 has to do with Citrix or with the other operating systems he listed. I'm assuming Citrix is the hardware and it will be running Windows Server 2008, 2012, or 2016. Either that or Citrix is the operating system and Windows Server 2008/2012/2016 is a virtual server that will be running on it.
 
Either way, I would think the answer to his question depends on whether our software can be installed on Windows Server 2008/2012/2016 (which it currently does NOT) and has nothing to do with Citrix or Windows 10.
 
^ Does this make any sense?

I may be doing some of the members an injustice but I don't think there are too many with in-depth knowledge of this subject - I certainly don't, but this link seems to explain the subject -

 

 

 

 

What is citrix server: Citrix Server is a virtualization tool that enables businesses to centrally host applications and resources and deliver them to Windows clients, as well as non-Windows clients using Microsoft Terminal Services or RDSH and VDI.

 

Whether this will get you any further I have no idea but I offer it for what it is worth.
