for all Citrix Products

I previously showed how to get a 1-Year License for the Citrix NetScaler VPX Express. Our partners don’t only use the NetScaler VPX, and may need 1-Year Licenses for other Citrix products as well. These can be obtained by joining the Citrix Ready program. To join Citrix Ready and obtain 1-Year Licenses for your Citrix products, follow the procedure below.

Citrix Ready Process

  1. Sign up for a new Citrix user account
  2. Sign up for Citrix Ready at
  3. Questions? Send email to
  4. Wait for Citrix Ready approval (about 72 hours)
  5. Receive approval email from Citrix Ready
  6. Login to MyCitrix at
  7. Select Choose a Toolbox -> Partner Demo Licenses -> Get Software
  8. Select Citrix Product to license -> Retrieve Serial Numbers
  9. Select and copy Serial Number to clipboard
  10. Select Choose a Toolbox -> Activate System/Manage Assets -> Activate/Allocate
  11. Paste in Serial Number -> Continue
  12. Allocate, Download and Install License

See how easy it is
