  • Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Documentation Script V3.41 (FINAL update by Webster)

    Version 3.41 23-Jun-2023

    It has been an honor and a privilege to provide the XenApp/XenDesktop/CVAD series of scripts to you since 30-Sep-2011.

    None of those scripts would have happened without the help of Michael B. Smith, James Rankin, and Jarian Gibson. None of the scripts would have been released without the pressure, I mean encouragement, of Jarian.
