Here's the situation:

We're a Citrix shop.  Most of our users launch XenDesktop session on iGel thin clients with multiple monitors.  That works fine.

I launch my XenDesktop the same way, but sometimes, I need to launch a XenDesktop session inside my XenDesktop session.  That is, I sit down at my iGel, launch my desktop (full screen, multi-monitor), then once I'm inside Windows, I log into Storefront and launch a different desktop.

I need that second desktop to appear Windowed, not full screen.  Right now, that second desktop opens full screen/multi-monitor, and I have to use Shift-F2 so that I can drag it sort-of-out-of-the-way.

The rub here is that I know that in the past, this worked fine.  I could open multiple XD sessions within Windows via Storefront Web and they would open in window-mode and I could minimize them while I worked.  Then, somehow, my Receiver decided that all my future XD sessions had to be full screen and I was borked from there on out.  Resetting my receiver doesn't help.

Any ideas?  I don't want to go editing delivery groups, master ICA files, or anything else that might effect most of my users' sessions.  I just want my sessions to launch in window mode when I launch them from my desktop receiver client.

Thanks!

I have a citrix environment on which users connect to.
For e-mail their is an Office 365 configuration with ADFS which syncs the usernames and passwords for single-sign on.

Now sometimes a different user quickly wants to check its e-mail while another user is logged on to the terminal. But when he goes to the webpage of O365 and starts typing his e-mail address, the logged on user is automatically logged on and the different user can't check its mail.

Is there a change that can be done so that this becomes possible?
We already tried with inPrivate browsing but also here it automatically logs on with the currently logged on windows user.

Xenapp 6.5 Intermittent issues since KB4012215 (WannaCry security fix)

Hi All,

Ever since we installed KB4012215 as part of MS recommended protection against ransomware\ 'Wannacry' into our Windows 2008 R2 Xenapp 6.5 base image we've seen constant intermittent issues with file handles and permissions related to user profiles, UPM, Office applications and RDS.

Issue 1 - when user logs on\ launches a session:  
Word - 'your autocorrect file C:\users\user\appdata\roaming\microsoft\office\MSO3081.acl could not be saved - click OK 'Word cannot open the existing file normal.dot'

Issue 2- when user logs on\ launches a session:
Outlook signature file goes missing for customers - they'll add and then they'll lose it again on another session later.

There seem be weird file and handler locks and registry handles not being released properly or quickly enough after logon. i.e. an application wont recognise required datafiles (XML) in user\ \appdata\roaming profile folder even though the file\ folder definitely exists and can be written to.
To our frustration we cannot replicate the problem however it seems that the issues manifest when a user logs onto a specific CITRIX server the first time around and then relaunch an application session on THAT server again within a given timeframe. Testing further indicates that if a user is logged off completely and then they log back onto that same server the issue is NOT present.
A server reboot clears the issue for a little …

In one of our Citrix servers, print spooler intermittently stops.

It is logged as follows:

Event ID: 7031
Source: Service Control Manager
Message: The Print Spooler service terminated unexpectedly.  It has done this 55 time(s).  The following corrective action will be taken in 5000 milliseconds: Restart the service.

Running a Windows Server 2012 R2.

Is there anything I am doing wrong?

Cheers and thanks in advance.

VIDEO: THE CONCERTO CLOUD FOR HEALTHCARE

Modern healthcare requires a modern cloud. View this brief video to understand how the Concerto Cloud for Healthcare can help your organization.

We currently operate within a Citrix environment and publish a number of web applications by point to Internet Explorer with the corresponding website as the parameter.

We face an issue currently whereby if the browser is closed, the session remains active.

We need the session to logoff if the browser is closed.

With a previous version of IE (8 perhaps, but not entirely sure) we scripted this, however in current versions of IE this no longer works.

I guess a script that launches IE, and then monitors for its closure before issuing a logoff command would be ideal, but am open to alternative suggestions if there are better ways to achieve what we are looking for.

Hello - I'm getting this error now after converting from Access/Office 2003 to Office 2010 with Access 2010 runtime, running on Citrix:
"Error has occurred: Could use {app path}; file already in use."

Is this something different with Office 2010, or is it just a runtime thing?

Thanks

Hello Everyone, Im looking to create an MSI file for citrix so i can deploy to multiple computers at once. i have downloaded a .exe to MSI converter and that did not work. ive also tried following the instructions on Citrix's website at the cmd prompt yet i get an error that citrixrecevier.exe is not a recognized as an internal or external command....  
is there anyway to convert or deploy to multiple computers without creating a GPO on the servers?
If possible i would like to use Desktop Authority from Dell or PDQ deploy.

Tearing our hair out... with this command line to start the Access runtime application on XenApp:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\OFFICE14\MSACCESS.EXE" c:\rpa%username%\RpaFront.accdb

The "%username%" resolves to "SYSTEM", and so it errors out.

What are we doing wrong?

Thanks

Hello.

I have a hosted Firefox browser in a Citrix environment.
The hosted Firefox is used simultaneously with the local Firefox on the user's PC (Windows 7).

I would like to change the Firefox.exe taskbar icon (when the process is running) on the Citrix server  (see the screenshot below).

I tried to use different "resource hacking tools" but so far no success.
Has anyone done this before ? is it possible?

I have a Windows 2008 R2 server running virtually on XenServer. The server is a Citrix application server running WolfePak, which uses ADS (Advantage Database). We were previously on a Windows 2003 server. Since moving to Windows Server 2008 R2, we have been experiencing extreme slowness. At least twice as slow as the 2003 Server. I have read many articles saying there is a problem with ADS and Server 2008 R2. I have tried many things recommended with NO success. Can you help me find out what is going on? The new server has 1TB of space and 32GB of RAM. We are not close to running out of either. Help!

hi experts.  testing redundancy in my 6.5 farms.   citrix documentation for xenapp 6.5 states "If the data store fails, each farm server can run from the data in its Local Host Cache indefinitely, provided it can contact the license server. However, you cannot make any modifications to the farm or use the AppCenter.".   I find that this is not the case.  If i shut down the server that holds the data store i can't bring up the farm in any other server and i cannot launch any farm applications.      

any idea what i'm missing here, that my experience contradicts citrix documentation?

Hello, I'm very new to Citrix platform, so please bear with me.  I'm getting ready to start a new position which deals heavily with Citrix administration.  I have little to no experience, one of the stipulations to my contract is I must be able to obtain & maintain my Citrix Certified Associate - Virtualization.  Are there any courses I should start with prior to this?

I am using a mail merge wizard within the Raiser's Edge database.  The merge wizard is conditional upon one field and a letter template is set up for each value in the letter field.  There are six separate letters.  The format is perfect in 5 of the 6 letters.

The merge field is a receipt number field that sits within table cell within the Word document.  ALL letters are based on the same template.  The field is formatted in each letter as Calibri 11. In 5 of the letters, the field comes out in Calibri 11.  However, for the 6th letter condition, the receipt number comes out in Tahoma 8.  I have tried using the MERGEFORMAT and charformat switches with no luck whatsoever.  In fact, when I tried the MERGEFORMAT switch, the field value completely disappeared.

I have removed this letter and have started from scratch and it just keeps happening with this particular letter code.

This is a database that is hosted through a Citrix server so I can't access the Normal file.

Does any one have any ideas that I can try?  I have been leaving this and coming back to it for the better part of a month and really need to figure out what is going on.

Thank you in advance for any help provided :)

We have two Xenapp 7.8 servers.  3 DC's.

I shut down 1 DC to replace the battery in the backup unit.  After it was off, no one could connect to Citrix.  I've checked the DNS settings on all Citrix related servers, and all DC's and they are correct.

The shut down of the DC did affect the local computers only Citrix.

Where do I start looking for the issue?

Hello - We have three barcode scanners and one of them seems to have lost it's CItrix software and I need help finding the right software to install and then steps on how to install it?   The scanners are running Windows CE as the o/s.

On the scanners that work, I see an entry for 'ICA Client' under programs.  I do not see that entry under the gun that is working and when we go to the typical web link and click a published app...it does not know what to do with...

Can anyone tell me how to go about getting this software back on this Intermec handheld?   I do know how to connect it to the Windows Mobile device on a laptop...so not sure I I have to install the ICA Client software on the laptop and then sync it over to the gun or how it works.... feel pretty much in the dark on this!!   Any help appreciated! - JH
