What application views DWF on citrix?

When I attempt to look for a DWF viewer, I get taken to a place to download Autodesk Design Review 2010. I have installed this product (Deisgn Review 2010) , but it does not work for viewing .DWF files.

All I get is black boxes that pop up on the screen. (though you can kind of see the drawing behind it ... not ideal) .... it looks like a video issue.

I guess I need to know if there is an older DWF viewer (that actually works) available, and also, it has installation instructions somewhere also.

Thanks.

Thank you for your question.

All Autodesk Design Review (ADR) versions, including ADR 2010, can work on Citrix.

Have you published the ADR application on the Citrix Server before using ADR on the Citrix client application?

OK, I believe that I understand what you are saying.

Let me check ...

OK, I already see one issue.

(1) The application isn't published to the same drive location where it is installed.

(2) So, it appears to be trying to open some web version, instead of the actual program.

I will do the following:

(1) Get the published location to point to the application location

After that change, I'll test and then post my result.

Thanks for your help! Not sure if this will solve it, but its really got me going in the right direction.

EDIT: I see that the older version may have been installed to a different location than the present version, but the published shortcut was never updated. Edited by: instant000 on Mar 2, 2010 7:30 AM

Was going to try a 2008 application, decided not to.

In further testing, if I use an ADMIN user, I don't get the problem with the black boxes, so it looks like a "permissions" problem.

But, I don't know what permissions I should change.

I can't just go and make every user an admin, for one application.

Please assist.

Thanks! Edited by: instant000 on Mar 2, 2010 10:04 AM

I am sorry that I do not know what permissions should be changed for one application.

I suggest you go to the Citrix website to ask for help.
