Will LibreOffice run as a published app or in a published desktop in Citrix XenApp 7.6?

Hi all!

I am a Server Admin in a small community hospital and I am in the process of implementing a XenApp 7.6 farm here. Due to budget restraints, we cannot afford to license Microsoft Office and are looking at alternatives. Much of our staff needs to be able to open and work with MSOffice files. Our XenApp environment is installed on Microsoft Server 2012 R2 (64bit, US English) virtual servers. The most common instance where this would be needed would be a user running a published desktop on a Wyse or HP thin client. I am curious if anyone in the community has any experience installing LibreOffice in this type of environment.

Thanks in advance for any insight you may provide!



LibreOffice works fine in XenApp. Nothing special you need to do really, install it on the XenApp servers and point the published application to soffice.exe. If you want to centrally configure it (going to be self promoting here) you can use the group policy here.
