Testing a Virtual app (Citrix)

Testing a Virtual app (Citrix)

I am currently testing a virtual app in a Citrix VM. When I login to the VM, the app is presented in a browser and I can only access the app and nothing else in the VM. So TestComplete cannot be installed in the VM where the app is running. Can I use TestComplete to automate and execute tests in this scenario?

What I would like to do is:

  1. Open a browser and login to Citrix web portal where the VM is listed.
  2. Click the VM which will download a receiver file.
  3. Open the Citrix receiver file to launch the VM, and  the virtual app in a browser within the VM.
  4. Develop and execute tests in the virtual app.

TestComplete must be installed on the same machine along with the tested application and must be up and running in order to drive the tested application.
