- Deliver Receiver using Active Directory and sample startup scripts
You can use Active Directory Group Policy scripts to pre-deploy Receiver on systems based on your Active Directory organizational structure. Citrix recommends using the scripts rather than extracting the .msi files because the scripts allow for a single point for installation, upgrade, and uninstall, they consolidate the Citrix entries in Programs and Features, and make it easier to detect the version of Receiver that is deployed. Use the Scripts setting in the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) under Computer Configuration or User Configuration. For general information about startup scripts, refer to Microsoft documentation.
Citrix includes sample per-computer startup scripts to install and uninstall CitrixReceiverEnterprise.exe. The scripts are located on XenApp and XenDesktop media in the Citrix Receiver and Plug-ins\Windows\Receiver\Startup_Logon_Scripts folder.
When the scripts are executed during Startup or Shutdown of an Active Directory Group Policy, custom configuration files might be created in the Default User profile of a system. If not removed, these configuration files can prevent some users from accessing the Receiver logs directory. The Citrix sample scripts include functionality to properly remove these configuration files.
