citrix xenapp 6 shadow taskbar not working

i have an issue where trying t run shadow taskbar on a new xenapp 6.5 install results in the error
"The ICA client is needed for this utility and is not installed. Do you wish to install it now?"

When I press OK:

"Cannot find the setup program for the ICA client. Please reinstall the ICA client and run the application again"

so i then installed the same version of citrix enterprise receiver as the clients use and  i get the list of users on servers so looks more hopeful but then upon trying to shadow a session i get
"citrix session shadow itility has stopped working" and the error in the screenshot ive uploaded

2. Add Injection Exclusions: in the registry of the Agent device browse to:
Add the value "cshadow.exe" to "UviProcessExcludes" (multiple values should be separated with semicolon).
Reboot the citrix server.

The above workaround has been taken from the following thread:
