NFR key for Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365

Veeam is happy to provide a free NFR license (for 1 year, up to 10 users). This license allows for the non‑production use of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 in your home lab without any feature limitations.

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).

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?

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,

Just downloaded the Xendesktop and I'm going through the installation on my newly spun up Windows Server 2016 core OS.  I'm getting an error always on IIS during the xendesktop setup.  Keeps saying "'dism' component failed to install with error 0x00000032." see screen shot.  IIS is installed on the 2016 server.  

Any clues on how to move forward?

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

I have users who log into another domain using Citrix, but they log in with their standard domain credentials using a trust. I am trying to use GPP to Map drives, however it will not map the drives to the users. I have added the users to a domain local security group from the other domain which has a two way forest trust. According to everything I find online this is how it should be done but it's not working. I add users from the domain they're logging into to the OU and it maps the drive fine. Did MS change how this is handled? can I no longer do it this way. I'm only finding threads that date back to 2013 at the latest on this and everyone seems to have gotten it to work by doing what I described. Any clues on what would be causing it? if I do a GPresult I see no GPOs being applied to those users in the security groups.

The domain I'm attempting this on is all Windows server 2012r2 and consists of 1 DC and 1 RDS

We recently upgraded to HP's T630 thin clients which use Windows 10 IoT along with the Unified Write Filter.  Usually the same person is using our thin clients but sometimes other people use them in our Customer Service Department where we deploy many thin clients.  For some reason every time a user logs on it rebuilds their profile and I have to refresh the Citrix Receiver icon to rebuilt their icons.  I even told the write filter to allow C:\users.  This worked on our old HP t620 thin clients which used Windows 8.1 but no longer works on Windows 10.  Any ideas?  I can't just turn off the write filter, let the user log in so it builds and keeps their profile, then turn the write filter back on because users swap thin clients way too often.   Thank you.

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.

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.

So.. we could not upgrade the vCenter from 5.5 to 6.5 so we needed to do a new install of vCenter  6.5 and name as well, they both are running simulataneously.

I talked to Citrix and the stated I can just update the hosting  configuration with new name and put new certs in and call it a day before i began the process

That was not the case and when I modified the current connection it would not take credentials and called Citrix and then they stated not possible and needed to create the entire thing over . I've googled and found conflicting reports. i did a test connection and used same credentials and it worked.

Has anyone changed an existing hosting configuration with new vCenter name successfully?

Are all these polices in use if they are in the list?

See attachment.  I know there is a registry entry to fix this, but I can't find it.  I've done it before.
Clicking "yes' is not the solution, because the error is per user, not computer.

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?
