Second Attempt to Stream Adobe Photoshop CS4 with XenApp – it Works!

Yesterday I posted the article Attempting to Stream Adobe Photoshop CS4 with XenApp.  As the name suggests I attempted to stream Adobe Photoshop using version 6 of the Citrix streaming profiler which is still in beta.

I received a few comments, a couple stating that it doesnt work and won’t work and then this morning a really helpful anonymous chap added a comment which instructed me to add a ‘ignore rule’ to the profile I created and a reg tweek to allow the streamed flex net service more time to start up.

So this is what I did.

Step 1 – Adding the Ignore Rule

  • I opened my original Photoshop CS4 profile that I created.
  • Right clicked the target and hit properties
  • Select ‘Rules’ and then ‘Add’

  • I then selected ‘Ignore’ and ‘Named Objects’

  • Hit Next and selected ‘some named objects’ and added the following
    • .pipeFLEXnet Licensing ServiceABF27A87-DC96-4b05-A06B-83EB2749B800
    • ??pipeFLEXnet Licensing ServiceABF27A87-DC96-4b05-A06B-83EB2749B800

  • I then saved the rule as below and hit finished

  • I then updated the following registry key within the profile to give the flexnet service time to start (this may be excessive)

  • Once finished I saved the profile back to my ‘app hub’ (my file share on my XP machine)

The Second Big Test

It’s was then time to test it again.

  • I ran the same ‘raderun’ command to stream Adobe Photoshop CS4 to my XP desktop
  • It started to stream as normal!

  • Up it comes

  • Photoshop launches as expected

It Works!

After 30 mins or so using Photoshop CS4 I concluded that it works fine.  Well done Citrix for making the streaming of Adobe Photoshop CS4  soooooo easy.  As I am sure in the final release the 2 extra steps may not be required.

Cheers

Lee Wynne (phew).
