Upgrade your Citrix License Server to the latest version 188.8.131.52 to support Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.8.
Citrix recommends that you install the newest License Server. The new License Server is backward compatible and will work with older products and license files.; however, new products require the newest License Server to check out licenses correctly.
You can download the the Citrix License Server components separately or run the installation from the Citrix XenDesktop 7.8 iso.

Click Finish. Then launch Citrix License Server web console and verify the version and build is correct.
Note from Citrix eDocs.
Licenses from old product editions appear on the Dashboard of the License Administration Console even though they are no longer valid. If you do not remove obsolete and/or unnecessary license allocations, you might see persistent alerts regarding the Subscription Advantage expiration dates of these licenses. You cannot turn these alerts off. The only impact of leaving obsolete license allocations on License Servers is that you will continue to receive these alerts. If you want to remove the licenses, see Delete License Files.
