StoreFront

I was working in my lab environment and was getting more and more frustrated with the speed of the management consoles for Citrix StoreFront 2.0, Citrix Studio and XenDesktop Studio.  It was taking an age to do ANYTHING in them so I started having a dig about online.

I wrote an article a while ago about Citrix Web Interface being slow and one of the reasons for this is that the consoles are trying to verify the Authenticode signatures of the snap-ins.

A quick way out of this and to dramatically improve the speed of your consoles carry out the following:

For 32-bit Windows Installations:

  • Create a file in c:\windows\system32\ called mmc.exe.config.
  • Place the following text inside the file and save it:

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″?>
<configuration>
<runtime>
<generatePublisherEvidence enabled=”false” />
</runtime>
</configuration>

  • Restart the Access Management Console/Delivery Services Console. This should be much faster because the system does not attempt to verify the Authenticode signature.

For 64-bit Windows Installations:

  • Create a file in C:\Windows\SysWOW64 called mmc.exe.config.
  • Place the following text inside the file and save it:

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″?>
<configuration>
<runtime>
<generatePublisherEvidence enabled=”false” />
</runtime>
</configuration>

  • Restart the Access Management Console/Delivery Services Console. This should be much faster because the system does not attempt to verify the Authenticode signature.
