IE in Windows 2008 R2 XenApp6 session crashes during video

I have a Windows 2008 R2 Citrix XenApp 6 server farm.  When watching a certain Flash video (not just any), Internet Explorer 8 crashes.
I get the below error, mentioning d3d9.dll is a faulty module (DirectX).  I tried installing DirectX9, but no luck.  Any ideas?  Thanks.

After repeated calls to Microsoft and Citrix I still have not resolved this issue.  However, the client has decided to resolve it on their own so I am now out of the loop.

If it's specific to a particular file I'd suggest there is a problem with that file.

How about if you copy it to a workstation and try to run it?

Or through a pure RDP connection?

Does it happen for admin users too?

File corruption certainly gets my vote though. :-)

Through pure RDP the video plays but it is choppy and unwatchable.  It happens for all users.  I tried installing DirectX but I did not try to simply replace that one file yet.

Is there a add-in which is using D3D9.DLL? If so, you may want to disable and try browsing flash websites and see what is happening. BTW, are you having issues with IE 32-bit or 64-bit version?

The client no longer requests my assistance with this issue and I do not have access to test anything further.
