  • The Citrix HDX HTML5 Video Redirection Service (WebSocketService.exe) might exit unexpectedly and the video is not redirected on the HTML5 page. [LC8825]

  • When a published application that is running on a VDA for Desktop OS is using a generic path such as %ProgramFiles% or %ProgramFiles(x86)%, a new duplicated application window might open while reconnecting the session. [LC9741]

Printing

  • The Citrix Print Manager service (cpsvc.exe) might exit unexpectedly. [LC8804]

  • The default printer might not be set for non .net applications. Microsoft Windows Server 2016 fails to update the value under the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\Device when the default printer is the Citrix mapped printer. [LC8984]

  • The default printer might be incorrectly set in a session. The issue occurs when the default printer switches to any other random printer. [LC8999]

  • When reconnecting to a session, the printers that are mapped into a session might load slowly while using legacy printer names. [LC9079]

  • In certain Microsoft Excel files, when you navigate to Excel > Print, and then select any auto-create client printer using the Citrix Universal Printer EMF driver, the characters in the print preview image might appear smaller. [LC9700]

  • The Citrix Print Manager service (cpsvc.exe) might exit unexpectedly. [LC9796]

Session/Connection

  • After upgrading the VDA from Version 7.12 to Version 7.13, the badge readers might stop working. [LC7667]

  • The web camera might become unresponsive inside a user session. The issue occurs when you perform any of these actions:

    • When using certain third-party applications to select a webcam in a user session, the webcam video frames become unresponsive.
    • When using the GraphEdit tool to start a virtual webcam and selecting the Use clock option in the menu.
    • When analyzing the Citrix Diagnostics Facility (CDF) traces, you see that only one video sample is delivered when the delivery pipeline between the VDA and Citrix Receiver for Windows is established. [LC8382]
  • Disabling Citrix Hooks might fail to take effect when several executables are added to ExcludedImageNames under the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\CtxHook. [LC8614]

  • A spurious XenApp session might be created on a VDA for Server OS when a Remote Desktop session disconnects and reconnects. [LC8706]

  • Inconsistent mouse movement might occur in a multi-monitor environment using H configuration. You start a Microsoft Skype for Business session and start sharing the screen with the other user. The Citrix graphic driver receives an incorrect mouse location from the operating system.

    To enable the fix, set the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICA, Name: DisableAppendMouse, Value: DWORD, Type: 00000001

    However, when you use the HDX session after setting the registry key, certain features that programmatically set the mouse pointer location might not work as expected. The features are:

    • Mouse Snap To feature.
    • The capability to synchronize mouse location between users with GotoMeeting screen sharing.
    • The capability to synchronize mouse location between users with Skype for Business screen sharing. [LC8976]
  • In certain scenarios, VDAs for Server OS might reregister automatically with Event ID 1048. For example, when you start two applications with similar names – Lotus Notes and Lotus Notes Standard and close the second application that you have started, it removes the entry of the first application from the registry. When this information is sent to the Delivery Controller through a notification, then that notification is rejected and results in reregistration. [LC9223]

  • The HDX RealTime Connector might exit unexpectedly. The video preview window closes or the video preview window shows a black box for a brief time and then closes. The issue occurs when there is no HDX RealTime Media Engine installed on the endpoint. [LC9282]

  • You start Microsoft Excel 2007 in a published desktop, open a macro enabled .xslm file, and resize the file in windowed mode on the Desktop Viewer. The session might become unresponsive. The issue occurs when using the keyboard shortcut Alt+Enter. [LC9379]

  • The Citrix Audio Service might exit unexpectedly and then restart again. When you reconnect to the same session from the second end point (thin client), the new devices are not mapped correctly to the session. [LC9381]

  • If you select the Clear or Delete clipboard function in a published application that is running on a VDA for Server OS, the VDA clipboard clears but the text remains on the endpoint clipboard. [LC9434]

  • The published application sessions might disconnect and user sessions might not log off correctly from the VDAs. When the issue occurs, you might not be able to reconnect and cannot disconnect from Citrix Studio. To remedy this situation, set the sessions to Hidden using the PowerShell command or restart the VDA. [LC9444]

  • When using the VDA for Server OS 7.15.1000, there can be an abnormal number of CPU instructions passing through the Winlogon.exe process that are originating from twi3.dll. [LC9450]

  • With the Client drive redirection policy disabled, when you start an application for the second time from the user device, the application might take a long time to start. [LC9477]

  • A web based application is opened using Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox browser. When you open certain tabs in the application, the entire desktop might become unresponsive. [LC9508]

  • The Server Total instance performance counter might be missing from the ICA Session counters. [LC9537]

  • File type association with Local App Access enabled might not work when the files are on the distributed file system (DFS) drive. [LC9538]

  • With Unicode keyboard layout mapping enabled, the published applications cannot be logged off. [LC9590]

  • When you switch between the keyboard layouts, a pop-up window might appear. Set the following registry key to suppress the pop-up window:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\IcaIme, Name: HideNotificationWindow, Type: DWORD, Value: 1 [LC9592]

  • A published application might close intermittently immediately after you start the application due to an unexpected failure. The issue occurs when the information about active processes is retrieved. [LC9661]

  • In multiple domains or multi-forest environments, you might not be able to start the second application when the local groups are configured for limited visibility. [LC9665]

  • After upgrading XenApp and XenDesktop from version 7.6 to version 7.15 LTSR Cumulative Update 1, certain services might stop or exit unexpectedly, or become unresponsive intermittently during logon. [LC9679]

  • The VDAs might become unresponsive after installing XenApp and XenDesktop 7.15 LTSR Cumulative Update 2. [LC9701]

  • After you disable certain ciphers through the Microsoft registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Ciphers, the TLS might not be enabled. [LC9743]

  • You plug in a USB storage device during session logon and redirect with generic mode. The drive might still exist after you unplug the USB device. [LC9783]

  • The Kana language input key on the Japanese Input Method Editor (IME) might be automatically enabled when you log on to a VDA. [LC9932]

  • With this fix, the whitelist process mechanism is added to SCardHook. When the whitelist is defined in the registry, only processes that are included in the whitelist can use smart card redirection.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\SmartCard, Name: HookProcessWhitelist, Type: REG_SZ, Value: <process name> [LC9961]

  • The wfshell.exe process might exit unexpectedly. As a result, the published applications fail to start. [LD0102]

  • After you upgrade the VDA to Version 7.15 Cumulative Update 2 or upgrade from Version 7.15 Cumulative Update 1 to Cumulative Update 2, the configured values AnonymousUserIdleTime and MaxAnonymousUsers under the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Citrix might be removed. [LD0378]

Smart Cards

  • You set the registry value DisableLogonUISuppression to 0 under the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\Citrix Virtual Desktop Agent. When you start a published application, the VDA might require you to type the smart card pin. The message Please wait for the local session manager appears in Citrix Receiver for Windows and eventually times out because the DisableLogonUISuppression value 0 suppresses the LogonUI PIN prompt. As a result, the PIN prompt never appears.

    To enable the fix, set this registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\Citrix Virtual Desktop Agent, Name: DisableLogonUISuppressionForSmartCardPublishedApps, Type: DWORD, Value: 1 [LC9059]

System Exceptions

  • Servers might experience a fatal exception on picadm.sys and display a blue screen with bug check code 0x22 (FILE_SYSTEM). [LC7726]

  • With Enlightened Data Transport (EDT) enabled, servers might experience a fatal exception on tdica.sys and display a blue screen with bug check code SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (7e). [LC8794]

  • Servers might experience a fatal exception on picadm.sys and display a blue screen with bug check code 0x000000D1(DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL). [LC8830]

  • The VDA for Server OS might experience a fatal exception on wdica.sys and display a blue screen. [LC9695]

  • The wfshell.exe process might exit unexpectedly when attempting to start a published application. The issue occurs when the bidirectional content redirection policy is enabled, while no URLs are provided. [LC9705]

  • When you start an application, the wfshell.exe process might exit unexpectedly. The issue occurs because of the faulting module, icaendpoint.dll. [LC9737]

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 might experience a fatal exception and display a blue screen with bug check code SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (0x1000007E). The issue occurs when XenApp and XenDesktop 7.15 LTSR CU2 is installed on the Microsoft Windows Server. [LC9849]

  • Servers might experience a fatal exception on picavc.sys and display a blue screen with bug check code SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (7e). [LD0006]

User Experience

  • When you attempt to open a hyperlink from certain third-party applications (such as Aurion) that are running on a VDA for Server OS, an extra string %1 might be added at the beginning of the URL. [LC8952]

  • When you resize and attempt to move the published application from one monitor to another, a white border might appear around the application. [LC9570]

  • Configure a VDA to use the Unicode keyboard layout mapping and establish an HDX session from Citrix Receiver with local IME enabled. When you type any character and then select some or all the output characters in a published application, the new characters are inserted before the selected characters instead of replacing them. [LC9591]

User Interface

  • A legal notice appears at the start of the logon screen in a user session. With Local App Access enabled, when you click Ok on the logon screen to continue, the screen might show the legal notice for several seconds before proceeding with the logon. [LC9408]

  • When an application window in a seamless session becomes unresponsive, the taskbar icon of the application window might be removed and recreated. [LC9807]

  • When you attempt to start a published application, the Citrix Receiver for Windows screen might appear in the bottom right corner. [LC9817]

  • When you start a new application using the VM hosted apps while you attempt to reconnect to a disconnected session, all the applications that are present in the session are displayed. But, the most recently clicked application might not appear. [LD0189]

Virtual Desktop Components - Other

  • Citrix Director might report Multi-Stream ICA as inactive when using the UDP-based Data Transfer Protocol (UDT). The issue occurs when the HDX WMI provider is not updated to account for EDT or UDT sessions. [LC8960]

  • Attempts to unpublish and remove App-V packages from the VDA might fail. [LC9161]

  • The cache overflow in Machine Creation Services Storage Optimization (MCSIO) can result in poor performance of XenServer virtual machines. [LC9351]

  • The WMI queries that are running on the VDA might become unresponsive for an indefinite amount of time. [LC9510]

  • Attempts to run multiple instances of the same App-V application in the same session might fail. The issue occurs when the process that is running is different than the defined process in the manifest file. [LC9652]

  • When the Microsoft Edge browser is running on the VDA, multiple application entries might be seen under the Activity Manager in Citrix Director while you search for the user. [LC9673]
