Here it is ! We were waiting for this one since few month now and Citrix just release the Technical Preview for XenApp on Microsoft Windows 2008 R2, XenApp 6.

Few things you need to know before beggining to test : Windows 2008 R2 is and will remain only 64bit OS. XenApp 6 can be install only on Windows 2008 R2.

I begin this insallation on a clean naked Windows 2008 R2 without any update. You can check teh system requirements here : http://support.citrix.com/proddocs/topic/xenapp6-w2k8-tp/ps-system-requirements-w2k8-xa6.html

First, few screenshots of the new installation interface to describe the installation process.
