Ctrix ICA client cannot open IE or Outlook, Local RDP ok
Posted on 2011-09-26
We've come across a strange problem regarding citrix Metaframe XP and the ICA clients. I am not familiar with Citrix, so I'm hoping some of the Citrix gurus out there can help out.
This is an old system that is running Metaframe XP (Feature Release 3) 1.3.1
ICA client connections to the remote desktop can not open Outlook 2003 or Internet Explorer 6.
These applications open fine if the same user was to perform a straight RDP logon without the ICA client.
Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Firefox, etc all work perfectly fine and are located on the same partition as the broken apps.
Even going straight to the folder where the exe is located and running gives only a brief flash of hourglass then nothing.. nothing shows in task manager (processes), nothing in event logs....
This even happens when logging onto ICA client as an administrator. I've tried installing the ICA client on a fresh PC, and even tried on a Mac.
I cannot even say when this problem started.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
