• Citrix Cloud Documentation Script V1.11

    January 25, 2021

    Citrix Cloud, PowerShell

    Version 1.11 25-Jan-2021

    • Added error checking in Function Check-NeededPSSnapins (Requested by Guy Leech)
    • Updated the error message when Get-XDAuthentication fails
    • Updated the error messages in Function ProcessScriptSetup
    • Updated the help text
    • Updated the ReadMe file

    Here are some examples of the updated error checking. I did this to reduce the number of support emails I get when someone runs the wrong script on the wrong version of XA/XD/CVAD/CC.

    I also updated the script’s download page and help text and ReadMe file with this information.

    My hope is these changes reduce the number of emails I receive wondering why the downloaded script is not working for a specific version of XA/XD/CVAD/CC.
