How to Make ica file prompt for username and password.

How to Make ica file prompt for username and password.

I saved a link from internal webpage, the link is an ica file. When I run the ica file it prompts me to enter username and password which is good.

On another computer, I did the same thing, however when I open the ica file, it will directly open the application that it is linked to instead of the Prompt for username and password then the application should open if correct credentials entered are authenticated in Active Active Directory

I need to be prompted for username and password when running the ica file
any help on this issue.?

Thank you

If the user is authenticated already with receiver (from previous session or SSOn) the user is not prompted for credentials.
What if you take the .ICA file from PC1 to PC2?

Check the ICA file you downloaded, and verify that the username/password entries in the INI are either empty, or non-existent.

Also, verify if the Citrix single signon service is running on both systems?  My guess is that the first PC doesn't have it running and the second one does.  If that is the case, then we need to look at what your ultimate goal is for this?  You could potentially modify your application to always require a login, which should force it to always prompt for credentials.

if SSO is enabled.. where can I disable it ?
the reason I need the ica file to prompt for username and password, because I want to use it with my elevated privileges account while logged in to the PC with my domain user account

If I remember correctly, it is a service..  (It's been a while since I've had to dig down into the client.)  
If not, you can use SysInternal's autoruns to locate it and stop wherever it is starting from.

Now.. ideally, I would reinstall the client with the command line and make sure you do *not* enable SingleSignon, and then you should be good to go.  https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/receiver/windows/current-release/install/cfg-command-line.html. That will be your cleanest option..
