XenApp 5 V4.1 Documentation Script Has Been Updated 14-Apr-2014

I recently had to fix a bug in the XenApp 6.5 and XenApp 6.0 scripts. After fixing that bug I took the time to add a few user requests into the scripts. Since two of the user requests also affected the XenApp 5 script, I thought I might as well update that script also.

David Figueroa requested this feature in September 2013. It is about time I got it implemented. David requested the in the Application section the Command Line and Working Directory be in a different font and size. I had wanted to do this for a while but didn’t know how to do it. Since Ryan Revord wrote the original WriteWordLine function I asked him to see if he could enhance his function to do this. Ryan was able to enhance his function and that function is now in every completed and in development script. Ryan’s enhanced WriteWordLine function allows for selecting a font name, font size, italics and bold. Thanks Ryan.

I am glad Pavel Stadler joined the testing group last fall. He has be an extremely thorough tester and made numerous enhancement requests. It will take a good while to implement the suggestions of his I agree with.

Pavel suggested that not all Stopped Citrix services should be in Red. If a Service startup type is Manual and the state is Stopped, that is not an error or cause for concern and should not be in red. I agree. Pavel went ahead and worked out the code to get the start mode and I just added some error checking. There are some services where the code used cannot find a start mode so those are given a Startup Type of “Not Found”.

You will see some of Pavel’s other enhancement requests in future updates.

Script version is now 4.12.
