Slow logon to Citrix XA6 published Desktop (windows server 2008 R2) - Internet explorer branding policy
Posted on 2012-03-29
I was looking for some expert advice. We have 5 Citrix servers in a farm using TS Roaming profiles. When a user logs into Citrix the log in process hangs for 1 minute on the internet explorer branding policy part. Now I have looked at several threads online regarding this issue and found several other people with the same problem. We are using internet explorer 8 but I have also tested it on a test server with ie9 and still with the same results.
I used GPLOGVIEW to find out what is happening and confirmed that it is the Branding policy that hangs.
To try and correct it I did the follwoing:
- Disabled all the GPOs that had any branding settings
- Added the reg key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MAIN\FeatureControl\FEATURE_PARSING_BRANDING_CMDLINE_FLAGS_KB941158
I found references to a DLL file but I could not get a version that would work on our server as our server is 64bit.(iedkcs32.dll)
Is there anyone out there that knows or has been through this problem before?
