Install Citrix Workspace App with Bundled Remote DX

Introduction

This article outlines the procedure for installing and configuring a self-extracting Citrix Workspace App with an integrated bundle for Remote DX.

Prerequisites 

Installation

  1. Run in the 7-Zip installer. By default, 7-Zip is installed in the C:\Program Files\7-Zip directory.

  2. Extract the 7z920_extra.7z to the folder where you installed 7-Zip, in our case C:\Program Files\7-Zip. When extracted, the file structure must look like this:

  3. Copy the CitrixWorkspaceApp.exe and curdx_windows_citrix.exe to a folder. Select both files, right-click > 7-Zip > Add to archive.

  4. In the Add to Archive wizard, specify a new name for the archive. Click OK to start the compression of both files.

  5. Once the file is created, locate the 7zS.sfx in the 7-Zip installation folder.

  6. Copy the 7zS.fsx into the folder where you created the new archive. Both files must be located in the same directory:

  7. In the same folder, create a config.txt file and insert the following script:
    ;!@Install@!UTF-8!
    Title="Citrix Workspace App"
    RunProgram="install.cmd"
    ;!@InstallEnd@!

  8. In the same folder, create a new file install.cmd and insert the following text:
    pushd %~dp0
    CitrixWorkspaceApp.exe /silent
    curdx_windows_citrix.exe /VERYSILENT

  9. Drag and drop the install.cmd into the new archive and confirm the warning with Yes.

  11. In the command prompt, run the following command.

    copy /b 7zS.sfx + config.txt + "CitrixAndRemoteDXinstaller.7z" archive.exe

    Note: Replace the name of the .7z file according to the file name you created.

    This command creates a new self-extracting file (archive.exe) that includes the 7Zs.sfx, config.txt, and the archived 7zip file:

  12. Install the bundle and confirm that the installation was successful by pressing WIN + R. Type appwiz.cpl and check if the Citrix Workspace App and Remote DX appear.
