Application Streaming Utilities

Website Visitors:


This utility is used to change the client cache location or the maximum cache size. By default, when applications are streamed the target is extracted and cached in the \Program Files\Citrix\RadeCache directory. The default size of the client cache is 1024 megabytes (MB), which is equal to one gigabyte (GB). This tool is executed on the computer with the Streaming Client installed; it is located in the \Program Files\Citrix\Streaming Client directory. To run this utility, browse to the \Streaming Client directory and click the clientcache.exe executable.

More details about this tool can be found in CTX112526 – Citrix Application Streaming Guide - EN.

This database may need to be re-created if corruption is suspected. The database is called radeoffline.mdb and is located in the \Program Files\Citrix\Independent Management Architecture directory. This database exists on each server running Presentation Server in the farm. This utility is included with the Presentation Server installation. To run this utility, stop the Citrix Independent Management Architecture service, open a command prompt on the server running Presentation Server, and issue the dsmaint recreaterade command.

This is used to pre-deploy applications to the client. Filename is the .profile file. File names with embedded spaces should be surrounded with quotations (").  [-m] means to monitor the deployment until the process completes.

radedeploy /enum

radedeploy /delete:BrowserName

The command above is used to delete offline applications that have already been deployed to the client machine in the \Program Files\Citrix\Deploy folder. BrowserName refers to the name of the deployed application to be deleted. The application name (that is, BrowserName) can be found by issuing the radedeploy /enum command and looking under the Name column.

radedeploy /deploy:\\2003Server\packages\adobe\adobe.profile

radedeploy /delete:Adobe
