End of life of XenApp 4.5 on Server 2003–look out IE6

 

Windows Server 2003 SP2 is end of life July 2015.

Citrix ends support for XenApp 4.5 (nah Presentation Server, nah MetaFrame, nah WinFrame) in March 2013 (v5.0 is also March 13).

IE6 running on this platform therefore officially has just over two years. Best get moving.

There is of course the Quest solution called affectionately: “Internet Explorer 6 Application Compatibility Solution Bundle” which is based on about $10-20 per Concurrent User.
