I have few users  intermittently experiencing the attached mentioned dialogue box.

Everytime users logs in they get a prompt to install a driver "Do you trust this driver".  It pops up on Citrix Session.

Looks like Win7 but error shows up on Citrix Session.

Environment
Win2k3 SP2
XenApp 4.5 R07
WI 5.1.1

Clients experiencing problems:

Win7
Citrix ICA client: 11.0.150.5357

with xenapp the admin should be the only one who install drivers.
set the citrix-policys
- never install vendor drivers
and
- use universal driver if the native driver is not installed

too much (printer-) drivers can reduce system stability.

if one printer realy need his special driver, you (the admin) should install the driver once and at the next connection the user can use the navive driver.

The driver in use has not been "signed" off for full Citrix support - the warning is there to advise you of possible problems.

Which devices are these - I'll then check on the Citrix driver to test with instead of the currently installed one.

The policy that I mentioned will only apply to the windows 7 machines or 2008 and later servers. I am not sure why you would be getting this warning in 2003.

I have applied the policy to Windows 7 machines, Will test this on Monday now.

Regarding HP Universal Driver....I am not sure if this will help. As our Citrix policy is to use native drivers if available otherwise use Citrix UPD
