My Attempt To Install SSMS on Citrix….Pass (Part Two)

Yesterday I told you about my failed attempt to install SSMS for SQL Server 2008 R2 as a Citrix application and the failure that ensued.  My apologies for making you wait a day for the solution, but I was rushed with another production issue yesterday and decided to break this into two posts for dramatic effect.

Drumroll please!

 I found the following solution on several websites including Microsoft:

You need to change the following registry key locations:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DevDiv\VC\Servicing\9.0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DevDiv\VC\Servicing\9.0\RED\1033
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\DevDiv\VS\Servicing\9.0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\DevDiv\VS\Servicing\9.0\VSR\1033

Change the values of SP and SPIndex to 1 and SPName to SP1.  The original values in my case were 0 and RTM, respectively.  This is a strange issue because Visual Studio 2008 was never installed on this machine.

I hope this helps! Enjoy!
