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

Hi All,

Since my Google Chrome folder has been renamed to Google.old, due to startup problem, it doesn't keep my bookmarks anymore.

Each time I log off from Citrix I loose my bookmarks saved in Chrome.

Do you know how I can solve this issue?

Best regards,

I was wondering if anyone else is seeing this behavior?  I have received zero response from Citrix.

When connecting to some Windows 10 computers using GoToAssist Expert, certain mouse clicks no longer work as expected. This seems to be limited to connecting to Windows 10 Creators Update (1703) machines.  It does not affect Windows 10 version 1607 machines.

Example 1: when trying to open an elevated command prompt (CMD), right clicking on "command prompt" does not give any choices such as "run as administrator".

Example 2: pressing the Windows key and starting "This PC" and then right clicking does not offer any choices such as properties.

There are many more.

The really interesting thing is that while remote computer is running the GoToAssist session, even directly accessing the machine through its attached keyboard and mouse will not provide the expected content from Windows 10. However, as soon as the GoToAssist session is closed, the same keystrokes and clicks on that machine yield the expected results from Windows. In other words, the open GoToAssist session causes Windows behavior to change both locally and remotely.

FYI, I am logged in locally and remotely as an administrator, and the GoToAssist program is running as a service.

Running GoToAssist Expert.  As far as I can tell, with the latest versions.

My team has had reoccurring issue with usb peripherals, ( keyboard, mouse, web cams) stop working.  Event logs ID 219 indicates several "Kernel-PnP" events  in which  drivers fail to load.  

Root hubs in device manager states  driver failed to load for hardware because previous instance of the driver is still in memory (code  38)    

the issue  does not reoccur once Citrix receiver is uninstalled.
so has anyone seen this issue and knows definitively why would Citrix receiver cause a fault.

Hello experts,

We have just re-installed Citrix server and clients are getting the following error:

Unable to launch your application.  Contact your help desk with the following information: Cannot connect to the Citrix XenApp server.  There is no Citrix XenApp server configured on the specified address.

Need help troubleshooting the Citrix XenApp.  We are using 4.5 and running windows server 2003 (old and plan to upgrade soon)

Help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Using XenApp 6.5 r07 / Citrix Client 4.7
Running Windows 7 on the laptop with a Lenovo docking station
2 - 1920 x 1080 monitors connected to the docking station.
When I open a Citrix app (Putty, Notepad) the window cannot be resized (no arrow indicators on window corners) and when I attempt to move the window it moves one half an inch. Can't move to another monitor. No tool tips will display for applications within a Remote desktop connection.
If I remove the laptop from the docking station, moving / resizing / tool tips work.
If I only have one monitor plugged into laptop directly, it works.
Citrix admin says Citrix server Display memory limit / ICA Graphics is set to max at 131072KB.

I have checked all blogs and Cittix support and cannot find the resolution for this.

Hello,

We have a Windows 2012 RDS environment.  

We installed Acrobat Reader DC and also MS Office to the RDS servers.  

If we want the applications on the RDS server to be able to print to PDF, what are the requirements?  

Thanks.

We currently have a self service portal allowing users to reset their passwords, and unlock their accounts based on authentication methods.  We are a heavy citrix environment.  I was wondering if there was anyway for me to add citrix sessions resets into it via code.  Its all web based right now, so it would have to connect to a citrix server and execute a command to 'log' the person off or 'reset' their session.  Any ideas?

Issue:
We have a user that has a XenDesktop VDA with PvD. Adobe Cloud with Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. is installed in the PvD.

The user gets a filled up scratch disk every few weeks.
scratch disk full
Troubleshooting already done:
When searching through all hidden files on the C and P drives, I can't find the "photoshop temp" files mentioned by Adobe. Based on file size, it looks like the scratch disk files are mounted in the hidden V drive (userdata.vhd) of the P drive.

Going to Purge in the Edit menu of Photoshop comes up with greyed out options.

The scratch disk location in Photoshop is the C and P drive.

I know that we could reset the PvD, but that would remove all of the installed Adobe programs which would be a huge time waster.

Questions:
- How can I easily remove the scratch disk files without resetting the PvD?
- Can I provide steps to the end user so they can clear out their own scratch disk?

We have many users experiencing intermitten crashes and lag with Microsoft office 2013 products.  We have 8 citrix servers and roughly 130 users.  Each citrix server is windows 2008 r2 and runs xenappp 6.5.  Just looking for some new ideas, we have been working at this awhile.

To connect to our EMR, the user is required to download a Citrix ica file. When opening this application in IE11, a prompt is presented asking whether to open or save the ica. I have added the site to trusted sites, intranet sites and tried to change settings for never asking for the specific download. I have not been able to rectify this issue. Any suggestions?

Hi techs,
I have a XenServer on which I have upgrade to 7.2. After machine reboot, Local Storage downgraded from 2TB to 235GB. Previously, I used XS 7.0, and on the machine are 2 LV /dev/sda and /dev/sdb. Both were parts of the Volume Group, /dev/sda3 and /dev/sdb.
the pvscan command shows something very odd:
[root@vps02 ~]# pvscan
  PV /dev/sda3   VG VG_XenStorage-7ce922d3-bbe5-b2e4-e356-1b2680f56bdb   lvm2 [237.86 GiB / 237.86 GiB free]
  PV /dev/sdb                                                            lvm2 [1.64 TiB]
  Total: 2 [1.87 TiB] / in use: 1 [237.86 GiB] / in no VG: 1 [1.64 TiB]

Open in new window

And xe pbd-list command:
[root@vps02 ~]# xe pbd-list
uuid ( RO)                  : 4674d6e8-63a3-4fd9-d6e6-b10f55b4c2ba

    currently-attached ( RO): true

Open in new window

All the VMs on this host are diskless, the LocalStorage (in XenCenter) shows no VHD.

in log I found several SR_BACKEND_FAILURE which I don't explain myself why they have occurred ( I attached a log file )
I need to know if I can re-plug the second LVM (/dev/sdb) back in VG without loosing content.
Thank you

I know Citrix has some support for Powershell and have read some of the SDK documentation. Most of it is from the server perspective. I want a Powershell script to run on the client and at the client only that will terminate server connections but leave Citrix Receiver running.

If there is another scripting language that does this easily, that would be helpful.
It has to terminate the connections but leave Citrix Receiver open. The problem we have is not fixed by closing Receiver only by terminating the connections.
Suggestions from the server perspectives or recommended changes to server environment are not useful. Have to terminate the connections from client and all adjustments must be made from client

Hi Citrix experts!

We're running Windows 7 on our local workstations and Citrix 6.5 on two Citrix servers of our hosting company. Workstations have installed Citrix Receiver 13.3.0.55 and are working in mode 'Passthrough authentication'. Normally, when they start their workstations and log on to the network, all Citrix apps defined for desktop appear within 5 to 10 secs. But sometimes, some users don't get their icons - only local icons (like trash or local browser etc.) are shown. Sometimes it helps to reboot, and after 3 or 4 reboots all missing icons appear, but sometimes it doesn't.
During the entire process the workstation can be pinged successfully, so network connectivity is given. They also can print to network printers within their local network.
But: As soon as I try to access their TeamViewer (we have v9 installed), all icons appear! I don't need to connect to the workstation, nor do I need to enter the password. So TeamViewer seem to trigger or activate something which wasn't active before.
Not every workstation has this problem, but I couldn't get anything common for all the problem PCs. Different network adapters, different chip sets and so on. And: If one computer has that problem, other identical computers don't need to have it, too.

Maybe this could be interesting: On our locations where the problems appear, users don't have direct access to the internet (hardware firewall denies anything except MS updates for security purposes). They just have …

I'm using Microsoft Application Virtualization 5 to package an application which relies on Citrix receiver. I'm able to package the application just fine, but Citrix receiver does not seem to work when packaged.

I'm looking for solutions. Maybe if my application shortcut could call the local install of Citrix receiver. That would work. But it does not by default. Can this be updated in the registry? Shortcut?

Or maybe someone knows how to successfully package Citrix receiver.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello there -

We just installed Office 2016 via 365 on a couple dozen of our shared, non-persistent Citrix VDIs.  We followed the 'shared mode' activation steps, that part is all good.  But, every morning, every one of our users has to login to 365 to activate Office.  It's pretty annoying.  We're using DirSync right now instead of ADFS for reasons I won't bother to enunciate here, but we'll hopefully be using ADFS like normal in two months time.

So far I have:

1. Enabled the 'legacy' 2013 style sign on screen, which has the 'Keep me logged in' box.  Prior to having that option, users were having to activate Office every time they logged in, even in the same day.

2. Ensured that C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Licensing is syncing in and out of the users profile.  This is where the pair of token text files are stored.  Currently, they are copied out to our UPM share on log off and copied back to the users' VDI locally during log on.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hello,
I have 1 client PC, connected to 2 remote hosts via Citrix/RDP.
Remote hosts can connect to local folders of client, but cannot connect to other host's folders.
So copying files from one host to another, currently, can be done only via client PC, which is a pain..
Is there any way or tool to do such copying?
Thank you

I am getting "boned back up" on citrix and vmware. I used to be a bad ass on citrix back in the day. I have a kick ass msi laptop with 16 gig of ram that I am running VMWare workstation on and I am just building a Dell 610R with 32 gig of ram with VMWware ESXi server 6.5. i . I have citrix 7.11 already running on the msi but I am expecting difficulty getting the cert from the vmware server to import as I already tried building this in workstation vm and I had issues with the certs. I really would rather work with some older version of vmware but that seems hard to get.

Anyhow my question is how do you guys think I should carve up the hardware resources? I have AD running already on the MSI and I plan to build out citirix desktops to test PVS and MCS on the DELL. I may build another controller as well on the dell and delivery controller.

I don't mind starting all over so just let me know what you think.

Thanks !
