To clear the streamed application cache on user devices

Dec 17, 2015
Use the RadeCache command-line utility to clear the streamed application cache on user devices. For example, free space in the application cache or start with an empty cache while troubleshooting streaming issues. The RadeCache utility is included in the CitrixStreamingProfiler.exe and is installed automatically on the user device in Program Files > Citrix.
Note: Before using the RadeCache command, make sure that the application programs and processes are terminated on the user device. For large applications such as Microsoft Office, this can take up to 10 minutes.
  1. On the computer where you want to clear the cache, type the following at a command prompt:

    radecache [-i] [-if] [-ir] [-u] [-uf] [–ur]

    [/flush:GUID]

    radecache [/flushall]

    radecache

    radecache [/?]

    where GUID is the unique GUID for the application streamed to user devices. GUIDs must not include spaces.

  2. Set your options as needed, including the following parameters:
    • /? displays the syntax for the utility and information about the options of the utility
    • -i clears the registry and files in the install root
    • -if clears only files in the install root
    • -ir clears only the registry in the install root
    • -u clears the registry and files in the user root
    • -uf clears only the files in the user root
    • -ur clears only the registry in the user root
    • /flush:GUID clears the registry and files in both the install root and user root for the streamed application, and, for an application for pooled XenDesktop environments, unmounts the VHD
    • /flushall clears the registry and files in both the install root and user root for all streamed applications, and, for applications for pooled XenDesktop environments, unmounts the VHD
  3. Repeat for other applications, as needed.
This method affects only the local user device.
