citrix graphic card not painting

citrix used to remote into work.  when i remote into my machine with a single processor i5 4 gig of ram, i continually have to minimize and maximize my visual studio, because it is not painting the screen correctly and i get many lines of spaces and things are not painted correctly on the screen. if i scroll down and up, things get painted correctly.

I think it is because my work computer (the one i am remoting into) is so much faster than my home computer and my my home computer can not keep up.  my work computer has quad core i5 with 8 gigs of ram

i don't want to put a ticket into work yet, because i don't want them taking some ram gigs away from me.

All this is pure speculation.  Can someone please advise.

Client Speed and RAM does not matter.
Citrix send only the Picture and your Client has to Display this.
Check if you use the most current Client (4.2.100) and upgrade from Citrix Downloads directly if necessary.
At your work computer the most current agent should be used also (there are some public hotfixes).

Would suggest do open a ticket if local upgrade is not enough.

I am intrigued by this - you say you use Citrix to remote into your work computer? This suggests to me that it's therefore one of two things: Either you're using Citrix to connect into a corporate server and then an RDP connection from there into your work machine or it's another product such as GotoMeeting?

I would suggest that you check things like colour depth and resolution first.

A little bit more information would be helpful - types and versions of software used to connect, and the actual steps you take to do it.

Hi Tony,
with current version of XenDesktop you are able to access Workstations directly.
They register at the DDC and can be found and accessed like an App or VDI.
I think they use this feature.
