Question about ThinApp and MSIStreaming

Hello,

I'm sorry for a dumb question (still new to ThinApp), but is it possible to actually execute compiled package from the network share (without executing it locally)?

We have a compiled package which accesses internal MSSQL (MSSQL server is in the LAN so it cannot be changed). Once I authenticate to the reverse proxy from the outside and get the package transferred via Horizon Workspace, I can launch the application but it tries to reach the internal MSSQL and of course it fails.

I tried to compile the package with MSIStreaming=1 but it didn't seem to help.  I also tried to install Horizon Workspace agent with install_mode=RUN_FROM_SHARE enabled, but as far as I understood it's just the way you transfer the package.

Many thanks!

ThinApp standalone will always execute locally.. You can use a RDSH host to publish the application using, MS Published apps / Citrix XenApp or Horizon 6. Then execution will happen on server side..
