Citrix Receiver 13.6 customisation

Hello there,

We are currently in the process upgrading XA 4.5 farm to XA 6.5 using Citrix Provisioning Services, streaming VHD using VM ware infrastructure.
Currently we have Citrix Online Plug-in 11.2, I would like to upgrade the client to the latest 13.6.
This will involve uninstalling the old version and installing the new version. We will be using Altiris Deployment console to push this new client.
Can you please advise how should I go about customising the 13.6 client to" pass thru authentication" and update Server URL?
Also the best practice to uninstall the older version 11.2
Thanks and Regards

As far as I know the latest plugin is 13.0.0.x.

Anyway; using altiris you will need to create a package (using the onine plugin 11.2) to uninstall the 11.2 plugin from the client PCs. You will need to create rules for multiple restarts as follows:

1. Restart after uninstall
2. Clean the remnants using the following article:
     http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX131620
3. Restart after cleaning remnants
4. Install new citrix receiver plugin with the different parameters you want to have which you can consult the following article:
     http://support.citrix.com/proddocs/topic/receiver-30-windows/ica-configure-command-line.html
5. Restart after installation is complete

An additional note; for pass through to work you set it on the web interface

You can also consider using Citrix Merchandising Server 2.2 that would take care of all that you mentioned.
