XenApp for Windows (Remote Access to CAE Applications)

Remotely access CAE applications online through XenApp. How to install and connect to XenApp. XenApp allows you to access many of CAE's software remotely. You do not need WiscVPN running to use this program.

NOTE: XenApp can be run without installing the Citrix Receiver. To do this, follow the directions below, but at step 4, click "Log on" instead of clicking agree and install, then skip to step 9.

If you are getting an error that reads "Incorrect Credentials. Try again", be sure that you are using your CAE credentials to log on. If you still get the error, and you have not changed your password recently, it may be due to an invalid character or string of characters in your password. If you changed your password in the last few minutes, give it a couple more minutes and try again as the system takes a few minutes to refresh.

Note: XenApp will automatically timeout after 15 minutes of inactivity, or 12 hours after login.
