VDA for single-session OS

Installing, Uninstalling, Upgrading

  • When you upgrade a VDA, the MaxVideoMemoryBytes registry key might revert to the default value. [CVADHELP-13629]

Printing

  • When you attempt to launch an application, the Citrix Print Manager Service (CpSvc.exe) might exit unexpectedly. [CVADHELP-13945]

  • PDF printers automatically created might not be deleted. The issue occurs if they are created under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE instead of HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG. [CVADHELP-14280]

Session/Connection

  • VDAs might experience a fatal exception on ctxdvcs.sys and display a blue screen. [CVADHELP-13000]

  • When you reconnect to an active session on another machine, redirected printers and client drives might be missing. The issue occurs when you move from one machine to another without locking or disconnecting the active user session. [CVADHELP-13035]

  • When you configure the High DPI setting to use the native resolution instead of high DPI, DPI scaling between the VDA and the user device might not match. The issue occurs during the initial connection. [CVADHELP-13205]

  • With the time zone policy set to Use local time of the client, the time zone might be redirected incorrectly when you launch a session through Citrix Workspace app for HTML5.

Smart Cards

  • After you configure smart card authentication on Windows 10, smart card pass-through authentication might fail if you launch a desktop in a user session. The issue occurs when you launch a desktop from a thin client. [CVADHELP-11757]

System Exceptions

  • USB redirection can cause VDAs to experience a fatal exception, displaying a blue screen with bug check code SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (7e). Also, global lock for USB redirection might not be released, thus blocking other redirections. [CVADHELP-9237]

System Exceptions

  • USB redirection can cause VDAs to experience a fatal exception, displaying a blue screen with bug check code SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (7e). Also, global lock for USB redirection might not be released, thus blocking other redirections. [CVADHELP-9237]
