Installed Citrix Receiver. How do I open the .ica file in IE 11 in Windows 10 Pro 64 bit


I have Windows 10 pro 64 bit O/S.

I installed Citrix Receiver.

After successful authentication using IE 11.0, when I click on a citrix application, IE 11.0 is not launching the application and there is a open option displayed for the .ica file extension at the bottom of the browser.

I am not able to find the default application under the folder ICA Client to launch the .ica file in IE 11.0.

Please help me resolve this issue asap.

Thanks for your support.

Sriram, there are several reasons for this issue. Refer citrix article and start troubleshooting the issue
Dirk KotteSECommented:
if you install the most current receiver the file associations for .ICA should be set correctly.
if you save and doubleclick the downloaded .ICA file the receiver starts or are you asked for the application to use?
If this works, you should set the citrix webpage to "trusted" or "local intranet". Otherwise the receiver installation is not correct.
Try to uninstall and reinstall the most current client.
