Users are getting attached license acquisition error while trying to access Citrix/Hosted apps. In system logs we can see error related to citrix licensing i.e. License acquisition error (-4):Licenses are in use .Sometimes terminating disconnected sessions resolves the issue.But if users are not logged in and users who are  trying to login are  getting licenses are  in use error then

You can logoff the users sessions, I think you are getting error due license limit has been reached.

To logoff the sessions automatically you set session configuration using group policy http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX127318
