Documentation: Citrix Streaming Recipe Template

I recently changed jobs and they use Citrix Application Streaming to package applications.  In my previous job we used Microsoft App-V and had great success with it.  One of the cornerstones of that success was (that thorn in the sides of many a system administrator/engineer) documentation.

Softgrid (and then Microsoft) provided a basic template that documented the steps to sequence an application.  Since then, many individuals and companies have provided their own version of this document.  Since I had never used Citrix Application Streaming, I wanted to find a template to work from and document my first application.  I failed to find anything (please suggest any in the comments section below), but did stumble upon www.kirx.org, written by Falko Gräfe.  Falko has created one of the most complete and detailed App-V sequencing templates I’ve seen.  You can get it here.

I used this template for my own purposes and modified it to use with Citrix Application Streaming.  Please offer any feedback in the comments section, so we can improve the template.

Thanks,
Alain
