How to use HyperCam 3 under Citrix XenApp environment

HyperCam 3 encodes client’s desktop content and compresses it on the PC where the application is launched. To avoid transmitting huge data over a network, Citrix XenApp environment should be set so that HyperCam 3 is started on client’s PC. That is, HyperCam 3 should be configured as a streamed application.
For example, we use Citrix XenApp 6.5 and HyperCam 3.6.1507.2 on Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 (as a server) and Windows 7 SP1 x64 (as a client PC).




1. Create a new profile in the Streaming Profiler on a client PC (Picture 1), set its name as HyperCam3Streamed (Picture 2), set target OS and language (Picture 3).

Click the "Next" button. After that the installation process will be launchded (see Picture 4).

10. On a client PC, install Citrix Receiver Enterprise and Citrix Offline Plugin. The Receiver should be installed with the “LEGACYFTAICONS” option e.g.:

CitrixReceiverEnterprise.exe /includeSSON /ENABLE_SSON=Yes STORE0="Appstorename;http://server.url/storename/PNAgent/config.xml;on;Apps on XenApp" /LEGACYFTAICONS=True

11. Login in Citrix Receiver.

"HyperCam 3 Streamed" and "HyperCam Media Editor" can be launched from the Desktop. The applications will use codecs installed on the client PC.
