Installation Guide - Citrix / Terminal Services Environments

Using Internet Explorer, navigate to http://www.navitas.co.uk/products/visaease/
Scroll down to the DOWNLOADS tab and select the 'Citrix XCopy' link to download the ZIP file.

You must mark the download ZIP file as safe BEFORE extracting the contents, so right click on the ZIP file and select PROPERTIES from the menu.
Select the 'Unblock' check box below the advance button, and click Apply.
Expand the contents of the ZIP file into the recommended c:\navitas\NavitasVisaEase directory on your server(s).
NOTE: You can choose a different directory if required, but is must be physically on the server where .net 3.5sp1 is installed
Configuring the Start Menu
Once copied, configure the Start Menu with a shortcut to the C:\navitas\NavitasVisaEase\NavitasVisaEase.exe file. If the solution is being tested by a select group of users, then please only make the shortcut available to the individual users. Please see the relevant Appendix to also configure the GDS Toolbar button required to launch the application.
Initiating a ‘First Run’
Due to further limitations with Citrix environments, and as the solution makes use of .net and WPF technologies, the application must be run at least once, by an administrator, on the server. To do this, launch and sign in to the GDS to be used. Double click the c:\navitas\NavitasViasEase\NavitasVisaEase.exe file so that it is compiled and launches. Once the interface has appeared on screen it can be closed.
