Prerequisites for Citrix Record and Replay
- Install Microsoft Visual Studio on the Controller. See Prerequisites for Installation for supported versions of Visual Studio.
- Install Citrix Workspace for Windows on the Controller and on all injectors that you plan to use for Citrix tests.
You can download Citrix Workspace from the Citrix website. Supported versions include 126.96.36.199 (2012.1) up to 188.8.131.52 (2103) and it is likely that later versions also operate successfully. The Citrix web plug-in is usually not sufficient.
The first time you use the Eggplant Performance Citrix Recorder or Viewer, it attempts to create the registry entry described in Required Registry Change. Making this change requires local Administrator permissions. Without this change, record and replay will not function correctly.
On injectors, you can create the entry by running the program CitrixRegistrySetup.exe, found in the Eggplant Performance installation\bin folder.
