I was looking to install a password management program on CentOS and found KeePassX. I didn’t find an easy button for it so I downloaded the source files from their site and then ran the following commands. tar xzvf KeePassX-0.4.3.tar.gz cd keepassx-0.4.3 qmake-qt4 make Now is when I ran into a problem. I was getting errors, and it was saying “File generated with too recent version of Qt Designer”. So I did some research...

Cent OS

Citrix XenApp 6.5 training completed

I just finished going through all my training material on XenApp 6.5.  I must say I feel very confident in everything that I learned during the course.  Much of the material I was already familiar with as I used XenApp 5.0 day in and day out at my last two jobs.  What this course did was help shore up the areas I did not have as much experience with and give me an overview of the entire system.  I will just go over the material and check...

XML Integration with XenApp 6.5

Today I did a full install of a two server XenApp 6.5 farm.  I installed the license server on my domain controller, and then setup two VM Servers using Hyper-V, each using Windows 2008 R2, and one workstation VM with Windows 7 Ultimate.  I installed XenApp 6.5 on both servers and setup Office 2007 and a Server Desktop as my applications. Then came the first issue in the entire installation, it was when I installed the Web Interface on...
