J.C put this post up today and it was certainly an important update for me. I went straight to the site and downloaded it, and installed the update to my vista client. Highly recommenced this update!
Just a quick heads up that there are new builds of the SoftGrid 4.2 clients available for download. The new build number is 188.8.131.520 and the SoftGrid 4.2 KB article (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/941408) has been updated to point to the proper download locations. Note that applies to the SoftGrid for Windows Desktops clients only.
These new client builds contain a fix for an issue where under rare circumstances, performing a Package Upgrade may result in an incomplete update leading to possible package corruption. We recommend upgrading to the new client to prevent these problems going forward. We will be posting future SoftGrid updates to the KB article above and on this blog so be sure to check back every so often for the latest news.
Looks like the KB is only for desktop client - is there even such a thing as a 4.2 TS client? I didn't see one, but I may have overlooked it.
4.1.310 is latest TS build! Edited to reflect! But the KB has some TS release notes also.
Just adding this from the techcenter forum
TS client is 184.108.40.2060 However the KB does give info on the SoftGrid for TS clients
There is no 4.2 TS client.
Latest version are;
SoftGrid Virtual Application Server (VAS) version 220.127.116.112
SoftGrid for Terminal Services Client version 18.104.22.1680
SoftGrid Sequencer version 22.214.171.1243 and 126.96.36.1993
SoftGrid Clients 188.8.131.520 and 184.108.40.2060
Hope this helps...... I will probably blog this later to squash confusion Will ping the lads and ladies an email to get the techcenters versions updated also for you all
After an enjoyable weekend watching the Rugby World Cup (Which is a great love of mine!). I thought I
If I sequence an application with version 220.127.116.113 will I have any problem delivering it to a Citrix PS 4.0 server running 18.104.22.1680? We want to sequence apps so that they run on 3 different platforms without modifications
Windows XP clients
Windows Vista clients
Citrix PS 4 servers
With this in mind which is the best version of each component to use?
If we want run an app on both Vista and XP is it better to sequence it on a Vista machine or an XP machine? I have heard conflicting reports. Is there any way to guarnatee that a sequenced app will run on any version of Windows irrespective of which platform it was sequenced on?
Many thanks for your help

You should be fine with you 4.2.303 sequenced packages to 22.214.171.1240 clients but please bare in mind the following;
There are no gaurentees that your application will work from one platfrom to another. You may find yourself making some modifications of you packages to overcome certain upgrade issues with Vista.
Each has its own challenges and may have to be taken on an application by application basis.
In some instances you may well have to sequence an application on Vista as well as XP, some application install differently on Vista in comparrison to XP.
SoftGrid is a great tool for application issolation and ondemand streaming however you will need to still test all your applications for the platforms.
Hope this helps
