XenApp 6.5 Hotfix Rollup Pack 7 + all Hotfixes

I bet several XenApp Administrators around the world still have XenApp 6.5 Farms to manage and so do I. Here’s a table about all post-HRP07 Hotfixes.

Last month I had to manage a XenApp 6.5 Farm which was still on Hotfix Rollup Pack 3 without any further Hotfixes. This farm suffered from regular published Desktop session disconnects. When the users tried to reconnect to their disconnected sessions, they received a new sessions instead, leaving all their apps and documents opened and unreachable in the orphaned session.

As a first action I lifted the Hotfix level to HRP07 + all Hotfixes. Currently there are 22 Hotfixes for HRP07, with lots of replacements. It took me a while to figure out all the relations between the different Hotfixes:

Which the results above I created a PDQ Deploy package which is able to install all these packages in a single run. I’ve used this package over a dozen times now without any problems.
