How To – Citrix Presentation 4.5 – Unattended Installation File
As we all know the faster that you can install and configure systems and/or applications the more billable we can be. Not to mention save yourself sanity!
Using the Citrix Presentation Server 4.5 UnattendedTemplate.txt can save you some of this much need billable time provided you have all of your prerequisites.
· Update the Windows installer*
· DotNet 2.0*
· Java Runtime*
· JSharp 2.0*

· New Citrix Farm
