Citrix Receiver for Windows 4.8

Compared to: Citrix Receiver for Windows 4.7  


  • When the "Preview on client" option is enabled, printing multiple items in a short interval can result in corrupted data printing while using EMF printer drivers.


  • When you change the default printer on the user device from printer A to printer B and then back to printer A, the change might not be reflected in the active user session until you disconnect and reconnect the session.



  • A system administrator can configure an application with an access policy rule using the "Set-BrokerAccessPolicyRule" command. In certain scenarios, after setting some conditions through that command, attempts to subscribe the application can fail when the store is configured for "Enable Classic Receiver Experience."


  • If a USB device is listed as an unknown device on the user device, the USB device might not be available for redirection. The issue occurs if the USB device is plugged in before the session starts.


  • A published application window might cover the complete screen when maximized using the Windows Aero Snap feature.


  • When you launch Skype for Business from Citrix Receiver for Windows and attempt to make a video call or capture a photo using the webcam on Microsoft Surface Pro 4 devices, the following error message might appear:

    "Can’t connect to this camera. Close any active conversations or other programs that are using your camera, and then try again."


  • With Single Sign-on enabled, attempts to subscribe to applications might fail if one out of two or more farms is unavailable, and the following error message appears:

    "Your apps are not available at this time. Please try again in a few minutes or contact your help desk with this information: Cannot contact [Server Name]."


  • Attempts to restart an HP tablet with Citrix Receiver for Windows and the Checkpoint USB driver installed and connected to a Thunderbolt USB-C docking station can cause the tablet to become unresponsive. Also, the tablet can experience a fatal exception, displaying a blue screen.


  • Attempts by users connecting through NetScaler Gateway to a Store through Citrix Receiver for Windows might fail, and the following error message appears:

    "Cannot connect to server"


  • The logon prompt might not appear when you attempt to refresh applications in Citrix Receiver for Windows after logging off.


  • After resuming an endpoint from Sleep or Hibernation mode, the auto client reconnect feature fails to work intermittently preventing sessions from reconnecting.


  • Auto reconnect on Windows logon might fail when you add the StoreFront address through the ADMX template.


  • Configuration of full-screen to windowed mode and the reverse (Shift+F12 by default) might not work as expected.


  • When opening a published desktop in full screen mode, Citrix Receiver for Windows might appear in full screen mode, but the desktop is displayed within a gray frame.


  • In a multi-monitor environment, when you resize two monitors from windowed mode to full-screen mode, only one monitor might appear to be running a session.


User Experience

  • After logging on to Windows, a Citrix Receiver authentication window appears, even if the user is signed out.


  • The application desktop toolbar (appbar) might no longer work if the operating system of the user device is Microsoft Windows 10, and the appbar is started through a published desktop. The application might start, but the appbar does not respond to subsequent actions.


  • When you start an application in seamless mode, a second progress bar might appear for a few seconds and then disappear after the first progress bar disappears.


  • When using a published version of the Microsoft Paint application with a touch-enabled device, an incorrect drawing might appear. The issue occurs when you move the window from the default position, causing the drawing to appear in an incorrect position.


User Interface

  • When applications are subscribed using the Self-Service plug-in and they have the "prefer" keyword configured on the Citrix Delivery Controller, shortcuts and category folders for applications might fail to refresh on the user device. The application shortcuts might not appear under the desktop or Start menu when they are moved or deleted. When the shortcut is moved to a different folder, the existing shortcut and folder are not removed.


  • With local app access enabled, the desktop viewer toolbar might no longer be visible when you dock or undock the device or switch networks.

    Note: On systems with Fix #LC6719 installed, the issue can occur with sessions with local app access enabled and running in the foreground, and in double-hop scenarios where the feature is enabled for both hops.


  • The Japanese characters that appear in the title and footer sections of the Citrix Receiver for Windows logon dialog box might display incorrectly and can be incomplete. The number of characters that are cut off from the actual length depends on the length of the server name.



  • The setting "RemoveICAFile" in the client-side Group policy settings or registry might not work when more than one application is closed.

    With this fix, there is a behavioral change when ica temp files are created and deleted. When you start multiple seamless applications, the ica temp file for the first application is created, then for subsequent applications, the ica temp files are created and deleted immediately. The ica temp file created for the first application launch is deleted when you close all applications.


Note: This version of Citrix Receiver for Windows also includes all fixes included in Versions 4.74.6,, 4.1, and 4.0.
