Local App Access User Experience
Security Issues User Interface
Session/Connection  

Local App Access

  • After disconnecting from a Local App Access (LAA) desktop and connecting to a full-screen non-LAA desktop, the client side taskbar might show up above the full-screen non-LAA desktop.

    [#LC5966]

Security Issues

  • The setting "RemoveICAFile" might not be honored.

    [#LC5840]

Session/Connection

  • USB redirection might not work for fingerprint devices using a USB 3.0 port that supports “Selective Suspend” with power state D2 before redirection. The devices might fail to wake up during redirection, which can cause the redirection to fail. To enable the fix, set the following registry keys:

    • On 32-bit Windows:
      • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICA Client\GenericUSB
        Name: WakeupSelSusPid
        Type: DWORD
        Value: pid of the device
      • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICA Client\GenericUSB
        Name: WakeupSelSusDisable
        Type: DWORD
        Value: 0 to enable and 1 to disable this feature
      • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICA Client\GenericUSB
        Name: WakeupSelSusVid
        Type: DWORD
        Value: vid of the device
    • On 64-bit Windows:
      • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\ICA Client\GenericUSB
        Name: WakeupSelSusPid
        Type: DWORD
        Value: pid of the device
      • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\ICA Client\GenericUSB
        Name: WakeupSelSusDisable
        Type: DWORD
        Value: 0 to enable and 1 to disable this feature
      • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\ICA Client\GenericUSB
        Name: WakeupSelSusVid
        Type: DWORD
        Value: vid of the device
         

    [#LC5132]

  • File type association might not work when logging on using a roaming user profile and opening an published application.

    [#LC5184]

  • Communication between an ICA session and the WarpDrive application might fail.

    [#LC5718]

  • When you update the "Display name" or "Application name" in AppCenter or Citrix Studio, the original desktop shortcut might be orphaned or broken instead of getting modified, and a new desktop shortcut with the updated application name is created.

    [#LC5757]

  • If a session is recovered with Session Reliability and Local App Access is enabled, the Desktop Viewer toolbar might no longer be visible.

    [#LC5883]

  • With Application Prelaunch enabled, subsequent refreshes might cause a prelaunch session to get recreated while the previous prelaunch session terminates after timeout.

    [#LC5924]

  • The CPU usage of the wfica.exe process might be very high in a double hop-scenario and cause VDAs to become slow or unresponsive. The issue occurs when you launch desktop sessions from multiple user devices to a VDA for Server OS while you start other published applications through Citrix Receiver for Windows in desktop sessions.

    To enable the fix, set the following registry keys:

    • On 32-bit Windows:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Modules\WFClient
      Name: SlowHPCPolling
      Type: REG_SZ
      Value: 2-500
    • On 64-bit Windows:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Modules\WFClient
      Name: SlowHPCPolling
      Type: REG_SZ
      Value: 2-500
       

    [#LC5968]

  • Using the CleanUp.exe process with the silent switch on does not reload Citrix Receiver properly.

    [#LC6039]

  • Attempts to start a user session immediately after terminating an ICA session might fail if the following registry key is added:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICA Client
    Name: VdLoadUnLoadTimeOut
    Type: REG_DWORD
    Data: Any value in seconds (Decimal)

    [#LC6122]

  • After updating to the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Build 14393), single mouse clicks register as double clicks within an ICA session.

    [#LC6127]

  • When using the desktop lock appliance, the desktop might not launch and the following error message appears: "HDX engine is not running. Contact Administrator."

    [#LC6332]

  • When a user is running multiple sessions with Local App Access/HDX seamless apps enabled, applications and desktops might get shuffled intermittently. With this fix, Local App Access/HDX seamless apps can be enabled in only one session and is disabled for other, concurrent sessions of the same user.

    [#LC6408]

  • Attempts to launch an application from StoreFront might fail after restarting the computer.

    [#LC6413]

  • Citrix Receiver for Windows 4.5 and 4.6 might fail to perform the scan function with the following error message:

    "Your operation is canceled."

    [#LC6468]

  • The keyboard and mouse might intermittently disconnect when switching between a wired network LAN and WiFi.

    [#LC6594]

User Experience

  • When launching a published desktop session in seamless mode by connecting a remote desktop to a user device, the keyboard shortcut dialog tip window might not appear.

    [#LC6483]

User Interface

  • File type association might fail to work with file names that contain non-ASCII characters such as Japanese, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese.

    [#LC3105]

  • After upgrading Citrix Receiver to version 4.3, certain application icons might not appear.

    [#LC6371]

Additional Fixes in Version 4.7   

  • When you close Citrix Receiver for Windows, applications launched in a double-hop scenario might not be disconnected after restarting Citrix Receiver for Windows.

    [#626970]

  • After upgrading Citrix Receiver to the latest version, custom settings for Auto-client Reconnect/Session Reliability are not retained; instead, the default settings are restored.

    [#659754]

Note: This version of Citrix Receiver for Windows also includes all fixes included in Versions 4.6, 4.54.44.34.2, 4.1, and 4.0.
