Microsoft Terminal Server and Citrix (TS/Citrix) are environments for running multiple instances of a single user product. They are not platforms where a single-user product can be made to perform as a multi-user product.
When running Visual COBOL on TS/Citrix machine, there might be some implications to components of Visual COBOL which could cause potential conflicts between a ‘per-user session’ compared to the standard ‘per machine’ setup. The following components of Visual COBOL require special configuration:
You can use Visual COBOL with TS or with any Citrix version certified for use with Visual Studio; however, a separate end-user license is required for each user who accesses Visual COBOL, even if it is running on a single machine. See your End User License Agreement for clarification.
Multi-user capacity planning for TS/Citrix does not scale linearly, and the calculations required for this planning are not directly related or specific to any Micro Focus technology. Micro Focus recommends that you consult with Microsoft or Citrix Systems, respectively, about the server sizing and capacity planning, based on hosting the required number of “rich” Windows 7 or Windows 8 desktops (e.g. using a singleton desktop build as a baseline).
