Windows anniversary update issue with Citrix

We installed the Win 10 Anniversary update last week. Since then each time the users reboot or log off and then back on their computers, the Citrix Receiver login box comes up. If they put in the domain\user name and then their password, they are ok until they log out or reboot their pc.
If they don't put in their login information in the Citrix Rec box, then each time they try to go into like ADP, the box comes up again.
Any ideas on how to stop the Citirix rec login box from popping up?

Uninstall the Citrix Receiver? :-)

There must be a setting somewhere that saves the Receiver logon information that isn't being saved. Are these physical desktops or virtual XenDesktop instances? Are they using the receiver for published apps?

Yes they are physical machines and they use the receiver for published apps.

Are you using Storefront or Web Interface to connect up to?

I'm sure there is a policy somewhere that allows the Store to specify whether users can save passwords or not...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I think you can also control an aspect of this with the client-side configuration

Client-side ADM template (C:\Program Files\Citrix\ICA Client\Configuration\icaclient.adm) to enable pass-through (Citrix Components>CitrixReceiver>User authentication>Local user name and password>Enabled; Enable pass-through authentication). The associated registry values are:

'HKLM\Software\\{WOW6432Node}\Policies\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Lockdown Profiles\All Regions\Lockdown\Logon\Local Credentials' REG_SZ: UseLocalUserAndPassword = 'true,false', REG_SZ: SSOnUserSetting = 'true,false', REG_SZ: SSOnCredentialType = 'Any,NT,NDS'

web interface and as I mentioned, this did not start until we installed the win 10 anniversary update.
Now the login box for Citrix rec keeps popping up.

Check this on Web Interface

Open the Web Interface Management Console.
Select the "XenApp Services Sites" node.
Edit the "Authentication Methods" settings.
Select the "Prompt" method and click "Properties".
Select the "Password Settings" node.
Make sure that "Allow users to save passwords" is checked.

I guess my question would be, why would this be just affecting Win 10 users who have the update applied when windows 7 pc are not having the issue?

James RankinCommented:
I'm just checking the options.

It's possible that the Windows 10 upgrade has overwritten some Registry keys that deal with the Receiver password storage. Especially if you did an in-place upgrade rather than a wipe and reload.

if this is the case I'd start by reinstalling the Receiver and seeing if it behaves any better. I've seen Windows 10 upgrades do all manner of odd things, including uninstalling software.

After the Anniversary upgrade was released, further updates were also released to fix some issues that came with the upgrade. Make sure those PC's have all the updates installed that came after the 1607 release (they are quite large).
