Server Application Matrix

I deal with Citrix XenApp at work a lot. The other day I stumbled across this handy little application that displays a matrix of servers and what applications are published on them.

When you have a large number of servers and/or applications. It comes in extremely handy to be able to quickly tell what is published where. And to work out how you can better load balance your farm!

Editing MSI & MST Files

Thought I would make a quick first post, I will start doing a few more regularly hopefully soon. Not that anyone is probably reading this yet :)

Today whilst looking up Orca, Microsofts free MSI Editor that comes as a part of the Windows Installer SDK. (See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa370557(VS.85).aspx)

I noticed in the comments down the bottom that they mention a freeware MSI Editor called InstEd It!

Downloaded this, and so far it appears to be a great tool for editing windows installer files. Grab it here

If however you need to use Orca, I noticed Brent Norris has extracted it from the SDK so you can download just the orca.msi file without having to get the 300mb SDK :)

First Post

Just a post to fill in the empty space. Noone is probably reading this so it doesn't matter. I will put something meaningful on here soon.

My aim is to fill this with the solutions to issues that I see regularly in my Job and at home in the hopes that other people will find it and not spend hours trying to figure out how to resolve them like I have :)
