In my lab environment I tried to install and use Citrix Web Interface 5.4 on Windows Server 2012. This blog will guide you through the installation and configuration process.
Install the following roles and features:
First install Microsoft Visual J# from the XenApp 6.5 installation media (located in \Support\JSharp20_SE\vjredist64.exe)

After the installation is completed you can now open the Citrix WebInterface Management Console. Because of an issue you are not able to create a new Site – this point is not shown in the action pane nor in the context menu.
You can (temporarily) work around this issue by creating a text file named mmc.exe.config in%WinDir%\SYSWOW64 with this content (ANSI-coded):
<?xml version =”1.0″?>
Afterwards you can start the Citrix WebInterface Management Console again and create / manage sites. Be sure that this modification of mmc.exe.config can conflict other tools (in this case rename mmc.exe.config to _mmc.exe.config).
If you try to access a new WebInterface site you will receive the following error message:
404 – File or directory not found (site: \Citrix\XenApp\auth\silentDetection.aspx)
