Autocad - XenDesktop - VDI

I've installed Autocad LT 2013 on my XenDesktop machine. In our Xendesktop environment, every time you log off, the xendesktop machine configures itselfs zo the originel state, So all settings are gone when I'm loggin in again.


Now, for Autocad LT, this is a problem, cause every time I got the Autocad LT configuration window. Also, Autocad is checking the license again and again and activate it every time.


Anyone knows how to so solve this issue? Which autocad files/settings do I have to copy at the login to avoid the license activation and the configuration window?

To use a Citrix environment, you are required by the license agreement to have network licensing.  You cannot have stand-alone licenses in a Citrix Xenapp environment.  It will not work.


LT does not come in network licensed versions, except for the network version of Inventor LT.

Are there any published guidelines from Autodesk for optimizing these authorised products in a Citrix environment?
