We have an option to go with Application Virtualization at our client side .
Want to know if anybody has used MicroStation in a virtual environment .
What is it that you are looking for specifically ?
I want to know if anybody has used Microstation in a Virtualized environment?
Do you recommend us to use Microstation in Citrix XenApp 6.0?
Is there any general issues?
You may want to take a look at our Virtualization technote this will tell you what versions of MicroStation and Citrix are supported.
DONT DO IT .. citrix is woeful and unbelievably slow it will drive you to madness... just not worth it ...
If you only want it for non drafters read only then only allow bentley View ss3 on virtual with citrix but if you use nested file refs it will be extreemley slow even over fast networks....
We use it only with Bentley view for non drafters I would hate to have to use full mstn and do work in it as it is really really slow.. even with fast latest computers .. its citrix that slows it all down....( but our IT refuses to instal Bentley View on all pc users) ....
But it is much better to install Bentley view on all pcs ( non drafters only) for free! and let them see drawings via the network direct...But they then need to have the drawings drive / folders on a read only access via privileges so they cant move or delete stuff in error or deliberately...only full access to drafters for those directories but f you can get IT on your side via a business case it will work great...
I did this with a previous contract and was given a big fat bonus for the increased productivity Bentley view created for them...you need to run some training sessions for users but its pretty easy to use...and they soon see the benefits of self service ....engineers are like that... often the just want a print or pdf or measurement... so why not?

Most performance issues are infrastructure, not application related. There are a good number of large accounts which use MicroStation via hosted application delivery using XenApp w/o these performance issues.
