I would verify his client is installed and working correctly.  If it was a server side issue, you would know from the other users.  Try having the user un-install and re-install the client.  I believe 10.15 has been released here:

We`ve tried to reinstall the cleint, still running into the same issue. I will try to update the client to a version you listed. Other users are able to log in using Citrix without issues. One correction though, client PC is Windows XP and not Vista.
Ok.  It still sounds like a client installation issue.  

Try a "full" re-install:
- Uninstall
- Delete all Temporary Internet Explorer files, cookies, etc.
- Reboot
- Reinstall newest client

I actually found the fix.

It was i license issue

i deleted this registry key and it resolved it

A license issue on the Presentation Server itself?  If that was the issue, I would expect other users to experience the same problem.
This happens sometimes when a temporary TS license runs out but cannot be renewed. You'll probably find that the client has got a new temporary license and it'll run out in 90 days again.

Check that you haven't run out of TS licenses.

dpetr000, the key that I removed was on the client PC. hkey_local_machine\software\microsoft\mslicensing
Thank you for your help guys.

did you check your license server and the license that's been given to the client? It's quite likely that this problem will re-occur and it may start affecting more clients. Now may be a good time to check that it's working correctly and that you've got enough licenses.

Sorry about delay guys. I am splitting the points between dpetr000 and Spot The Cat.
Technomic, i guess the problem is solved, but anyway, from what i read above, you have a TS Licensing issue. Either your TS-license server ran out of licenses och your Vista machine cant find the license server.

In the Application event log i guess you will see:
Event ID 1004
Source: TermService
Description: The Terminal Server cannot issue a client license.

You need to activate the Licensing server and install new/additional licenses.

I think this is due to that TS CAL isnt included in Vista, but i was included on XP Pro.
