[en] Using NiceLabel in Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop environments require special printing and licensing configurations.

[en] XenApp is an application virtualization solution that helps you optimize productivity by enabling universal access to virtual apps, desktops, and data from any device. Earlier versions of the product were named WinFrame, MetaFrame, and Presentation Server.

[en] XenDesktop includes the same features as XenApp and adds implementation options for scalable Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) solutions.

[en] Glossary of Citrix terms

  • [en] Client printers. Any printer device that is configured at the user endpoint with installed Citrix Receiver client. This term generally refers to printers that are physically attached to the endpoint. The term may also include network printers configured at the endpoint.

  • [en] Network printers. Any network-accessible printer. These printers are generally managed and assigned to users by the IT administrators. Network printers may be configured on a XenApp server, a virtual desktop, or directly at the user endpoint.

  • [en] Citrix Universal Printer. A generic printer you create at the beginning of a session. This generic printer is not tied to a printing device. When you use generic printers, resulting print jobs are sent to the local endpoint from where the user can print with any available client printer.

  • [en] Session printers. Any printer that is created within the Citrix session. Such sessions may include client printers, network printers, and generic universal printers.

  • [en] Citrix Universal Print Driver (UPD). A set of generic printer drivers that can be used for any printer device as an alternative to the standard printer vendor/model-specific drivers. The Citrix UPDs with support for EMF and XPS printing formats are included with the virtual desktop agent (VDA) and installed by default. Citrix UPD can also support additional printing formats such as PostScript, PCL, and PDF. This requires the installation of additional drivers.

  • [en] Citrix Universal Print Server (UPS). An optional server component that is installed on a Windows print server to process the print jobs from Citrix sessions. One of the main benefits of using the Citrix UPS is that it allows the use of Citrix UPD for network printers configured on the VDA.

  • [en] Printing pathway. There are two possible routes for a print job to be sent from the Citrix session host (VDA) to a printer device--through the client or through a network print server. Those paths are referred to as the client printing pathway and the network printing pathway.

  • [en] Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). Refers to the process of running a user desktop using a virtual machine that runs on a server in the data center. VDI represents a powerful form of desktop virtualization because it enables fully personalized desktops for each user with all the security and simplicity of centralized management.
