DD Portal Terminal Server/Citrix

DD Portal Terminal Server/Citrix

The DD Portal terminal server installation is very simple and as such does not have an auto update feature, unlike the normal DD Portal client, therefore it is only recommended for situations where your clients have to access the portal through a terminal server.

You will be able to find the download link to the terminal server installer through your admin console under DDPortal and then the 'download' tab.

This installer simply copies the application files of our portal application to the Program Files folder. It will create a shortcut in the Common Desktop folder with the Product name you provided in the DD Portal branding page.

It will also add a registry key to:

`HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run [64-bit]`


`HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run [32-bit]`

to launch the application to the users tray on login.

The EXE Installer:

  • Use this installer when installing to a Citrix/Terminal Server environment
  • This EXE will install the Portal directly into %ProgramFiles(x86)%
  • Desktop shortcuts will be made available for all users.

This installer is built using InnoSetup.

You can find full documentation for Installation Command Line Parameters and Uninstaller Command Line Parameters inside their documentation.
