We are testing out Citrix XenApp 7.17 and we use published desktop screens at my work.  We have a user that does not have very good eye sight and she says that she cannot see things correctly via Remote Desktop to the Windows 2102 R2 server.


When she is connected to the Windows 2008 R2 server, the RDP session and viewability is fine.  I do not know what to try on the new 2012 R2 terminal servers.  I have tried the following:


  • Swapping monitors

  • Adjust ClearType text
 From: https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-make-text-easier-to-read-in-windows/

  • Adjust Remote Desktop 'Experience' tab to be LAN (10 Mbps or higher)

I want to try an .ica connection but that is not ready yet, hopefully it will be ready soon.  I also want to try a higher resolution from the Wyse Think Client, maybe that will work?

What else can I do to assist the user's ability to view text better on a Remote Desktop session to a Windows 2102 R2 server.  I never got into gaming so I am not that familiar with the graphics tricks.  I do not know what else to do because I am afraid if I purchase another monitor then the problem will still be there.

Hi Team,

We use USB Buffalo DVD drives in our environment on our Wyse THIN OS 3040 devices. We also installed latest driver on citrix servers, still when we try to connect to citrix session it showing an error in device manager as STATUS _DEVICE_POWER_FAILURE(This device cannot start. Code10). Tried installing latest drivers but still problem remains same.

Is there something i am missing, or any other driver need to be installed? Can someone help me here.

Thanks in advance, your help is much appreciated.

I am having and issue with Citrix Receiver on one of the system I manage. I get the error message "This version of Citrix Receiver does not support the selected encryption. Please contact your administrator."  I found several topics suggesting corrupted registry entries and to use the clean-up utility.  I have done all that. I finally resorted to re-imaging the system and starting from scratch. This worked for about and hour until the user restarted the machine.  I have several other systems with the exact same setup that don't have this issue.  Where is this coming from? Has anyone resolved this issue?

What will I need to do and consider when changing our Microsoft licensing from a type "MAK" to "KMS" keys?

We are in the process of upgrading our Citrix environment and the new version of Citrix 7.17 requires/recommends that you use KMS style of Microsoft licenses.  We were always using MAK types of keys for everything; but, MAK types will not work well with this new Citrix server farm.  Every time there is a update of software then the new terminals (which are cloned from the Citrix Master server) the licensing breaks and we need to reactivate for ever user manually.

Anyway, I am working on this with a consultant; but, i am trying to get as prepared as much as possible.  My questions are:

1.  Having a Microsoft KMS licensing server on premises allows for the licensing to be managed locally.  Will we need to change the already existing Windows Servers to use a different Product key than what they have already been using?
       a.  Windows Server 2012  R2
       b.  Windows 2008 R2

2.  If yes, how can we change the product keys in the best way?
       a.  System - properties?
       b.  Use a command from DOS?

3.  Will we need to change the Microsoft Office licensing Keys (from MAK to KMS) on the devices that we are already using?
       a.  PC's, Laptops, etc.
       b.  Anything that has the company Microsoft office

4.  If yes, how can we change the product keys in the best way?


5.  Are there any other "gotcha' concerns to consider when …

citrix receiver could not log you onto the store

Hello,

We have users that access a Citrix server (2008 R2) through which they access files shares on a different Windows Server (2003).  Side note, these aging servers will be replaced soon.

The two servers are not on the same LAN.  They are connected via a 20MB VPN tunnel.  

The issue is that there are several PDF files that users need to open.  However, at random, the receive the following error when attempting to access the files:
Acrobat Reader: There was an error while reading a stream.

Perhaps the issue is due to latency.

Are there any ways to modify Adobe to handle these slower connections more efficiently?  Has anyone else experienced this issue?

Thanks in advance.

I have a powershell script that we are using to launch a short cut in our Citrix environment, the powershell runs on login to the device so that the user doesn't have to manually launch the application.

When the application exits, we need to run a separate application that does some other business related clean-up.

Currently we are using these two commands in our powershell script:
Invoke-Item -Path "$pathtoshortcut\citrix1.lnk"
Invoke-Item -Path "$pathtoshortcut\citrix2.lnk"

Open in new window


Using the above code the first citrix link executes followed immediately by the second and what I need is for the powershell script to wait until the user exits the application and THEN launch the second.

I've tried to utilize start-process in this manner:
start-process "$pathtoshortcut\citrix1.lnk" -wait
start-process "$pathtoshortcut\citrix2.lnk"

Open in new window


However, again everything launched immediately.

I've also tried
& "$pathtoshortcut\citrix1.lnk" | out-null    [i](This resulted in an error)[/i]
"$pathtoshortcut\citrix1.lnk" | out-null    [i](Nothing launched here)[/i]

Open in new window

Our current XenApp shared desktop (on XenApp 7.13) is running on Windows Server 2008 R2. Our HP T5565 thin clients create a desktop session, then when the user leaves their desk for 10 mins, the 'Turn off the display after 10 mins' setting on the HP device kicks in, and the screen powers down as normal. Then when they return and move the mouse, the screen wakes up. Great.

Now, I've recently built a Windows Server 2016 shared desktop (on XenApp 7.15), and we connect using the same thin client devices. When the users leaves the desk, the screen powers down as normal, however when they return and move their mouse, it's as if not all of the screen wakes up. Sometimes they get a solid screen of only grey (where you can still see the outline of the password box). This happens almost every time, but when it does, the grey is sometimes on the whole display and sometimes in patches. After entering the password to unlock the screen, sometimes it'll have half or a corner of the screen still grey, and you have to make an Explorer window full screen on top of the greyness to get rid of it.

Please see screenshot for an example of what I mean. In this example, they've just unlocked the screen and found their desktop looking like this.

If I remove the 'Turn off the display after 10 mins' setting then the problem will go away. However this is not an option for us due to the extra power drain.

Besides, it's not just a screen power down that causes this though. If an user does a …

All of a sudden I have user getting the idle time out message. He is not in an rdp session. He does have a Citrix session open, but he always has and this message just started. This is on a w-10 pc. I just seems to pop up on him while he is working and just started doing this today. I see no programs running that would cause this and he states it does not matter what program he is using for this to pop up.

I know this is a simple task, but Having some issues.  I have a XenApp 6.5 farm.  I want to launch Windows Explorer to a specific UNC.  I have used batch scripting to map a drive and launch Explorer.  I have tried just publishing the directory using Content.  However; all tests work local on the box, but when I test via published app, it never goes to the network location, just the local drive.  

Can someone please help.  As I'm going insane here.

Thanks in advance.
