Upgrade Instructions for Citrix License Server 11.13.1 to support XenDesktop 7.7

Citrix recommends that you upgrade the license server to the latest version when you upgrade or install new Citrix products. New license servers are backward compatible and will work with older products and license files. New products often require the newest license server to check out licenses correctly. Uninstalling any version of license server below 11.3 before Installing 11.13.1 is also recommended.

  1. From your License Server, open the media for your product. If you do not see Setup, use Windows Explorer to open Autorun.exe or AutoSelect.exe
