nVidia's VGX might be your only option. I haven't tried it myself however.
We are currently right in the middle of pushing out virtual machine on a citrix environment.
We have our first half a classroom virtualised, and we have hit a stumbling block.
It goes by the name of Adobe CS6!
When a kid trys to use photoshop the colours are off and it doesn't work properly, now with further investigation it's because the graphics aren't anywhere near good enough to run the software, so we need to do 'GPU Pass through' with a graphics card in the server.
All over citrix forums it says you need a physical graphics card PER VM!!???
We will be having over 600 VMs, I havn't started excreting servers or money so there is no way this is possible.
Could anyone shed some light on this?
We may have jumped ahead on this one alittle but quickly.
On our master image photoshop works fine, but on the VM's the colour is off and it doesnt display correctly.
My take on things is either the drivers are wrong on the VMs or it has something to do with the buttons we 'switched' to make the vms quicker logging on, older windows shell e.t.c
Further investigation is commencing!!!
We use CS5 Photoshop with no problems on Citrix VDI, it was one of the tests we did in our Proof of concept.
No Special Graphics hardware, and the clients are either HP T5740's or 4320T (thin laptops)
CS6 is working fine for us on Citrix VDI-in-a-Box so it must be one of those extra settings.
My previous post worked for anyone who has the same issue
WRT Adobe products and Terminal Servers or VDI - I had the impression (past licenses) explicitly excluded CS variants from running this way.
Adobe CS6 does not support VDI!!!
Have they changed the licensing policy or are you just running it outside of their T+C's - I'd be grateful if someone could point to an update on their policy.
its ok. It's fixed now.
The license here: http://www.adobe.com/products/eulas/..._5-31-2011.pdf is significantly different to the CS2 or whatever version that said NO to citrix TS environments.
I guess this would exclude home access though.nterpretation
Customers who choose to deploy Photoshop in a server based environment, must acquire
the appropriate number of licenses for all desktop machines and users that can connect and
access the software/functionality deployed on the server. Customers do not need to
purchase an additional Photoshop license for the server.
Hosted server software (e.g., Citrix)
Photoshop may be installed and used on hosted server software server for direct usage by
end users (no automated, programmatic, or scripted usage or other restrictions as stated in
the EULA) so long as each individual named user with access to the application must have a
license. (For example - 100 named users have hosted server software access. Out of those
100 users, only 50 have access to the Photoshop application. This would require 50
Licenses are intended to be fixed NOT concurrent. In other words, you can’t remove access
for one user in order to give that access to a different user and then return access back to
the original user. Users should be static. Notwithstanding the foregoing, permanent
switchovers are acceptable (i.e., an employee has left the company). No sharing of a single
hosted server software ID is allowed. Each End User must have his own unique login to
hosted server software to use Photoshop. No usage in which the user population would be
uncountable. (For example – no use of a shared ID that allows multiple people to log into a
shared hosted server software account to use Photoshop. This would create an uncountable
The customer does not need to purchase a license for the hosted server software.
Ahh the miracle of site licences and App-V
Yeah I think at the first instance Adobe didn't allow their product to work on VDI, but the licence has been changed now so you can.
With alittle help of regedit of course
