How do you add Citrix Storefront URL to Receiver 4.1 for all users via registry (Win 7)

Posted on 2014-04-02
Last Modified: 2014-06-05
I am creating a new master image for deployment to other devices.
In this new image I have installed Citrix receiver 4.1 (used to be 3.4). Where in the registry do you add the Storefront URL now? I want to set it in here rather than instruct the users on how to add the URL themselves.

As PNAgent is no more, I am unsure where the registry setting for it is now.

Thanks but I can't see anything in that doc about setting the URL. Only about allowing HTTP URL's & saving passwords.

I'm also interested in how this work in production which would need to be HTTPS not HTTP.

I believe their is a citrix admin pack that will allow you to set this up via a GPO, if I find more info I'll post it.

You don't need an admin pack.  The Receiver has it's own icaclient.adm template which has the settings in it.  

It will be in the installation directory - c:\program files (x86)\citrix\ica client\configuration\icaclient.adm (x64) or c:\program files\citrix\ica client\configuration\icaclient.adm.

Now -- there is a strong possibility of creating conflicting settings between the machine image and the user's profiles (assuming you are saving them).  This is a *huge* deal, and will cause you a huge amount of headaches.

If you are updating an image that *had* the older receiver or online plugin installed, you will need to uninstall the old client, use the client cleanup utility (, reboot, and then install the new receiver.

My preference is to use a command line to install the Receiver, and specify the store in the command line.  (

Something like:
CitrixReceiver.exe /includeSSON ADDLOCAL="ICA_Client,ReceiverInside,AM,SelfService,SSON,USB,Flash,DesktopViewer" ENABLE_SSON=True ALLOWADDSTORE=N ALLOWSAVEPWD=S STORE0="StoreName;;On;Store Description" 

Open in new window

That will save you the trouble of setting the policy etc.  This is assuming your Receiver is pointing to XenDesktop.
