Installing Black Ice products on Citrix VDI

Installing Black Ice products on Citrix VDI for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops.


The diagram below illustrates the Citrix App Layering. The Citrix App Layering actually puts applications on a plane separate from the OS and splits the application into three main layers. Each layer is stored as a virtual disk. The base layer contains the OS itself.


Black Ice products should be installed and Activate/Registered on the OS layer otherwise Black Ice products will deactivate as soon as the desktop is delivered to users.
An alternative solution is to install Black Ice products on the Master Image and activate/register on the Master Image. Installing Black Ice products on the Master image could be cumbersome and time consuming. Black Ice products should not be installed and activated/registered on the Application Layer.
Black Ice products require a special installer for Citrix VDI with a special licensing mechanism that can be requested from sales@blackice.com.
