Oftentimes be on a screenshare using webex and the desktop toolbar would “get in the way” at the top. As I don’t need it nearly all the time simplest (but it is a dirty method) approach I took to removing was simply to rename its exe CDViewer.exe – located under c:\program files (x86)\citrix
Does the job 🙂
Easy enough this one. If you won’t to get rid of the language bar in your citrix environments. Go into your registry and edit the following key:
Value Name: SeamlessFlags
Value Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 0×40000 (Hex format)
Working on testing app-v packages using Flexera AdminStudio test machine facility (quite nifty actually) and by default was picking up errors using the App-v launcher relating to the app-v client service not being started. Manually starting the service didn’t bring any joy (another error with a -214 code).
Fix for this was simple enough in the end, seems even more than ever powershell needs to be invoked for more and more activities and this is no different. To enable simply go into powershell and type enable-appv like so and it will start up and set the service to automatic and your good to go
Came across an issue removing some really old citrix clients (version 7.x) in a locked-down environment that was running (ahem) windows vista machines. Had issues upgrading the receivers on the machines.
As these machines had ICA clients using a version that was packaged using installshield they used an EXE file. The method to remove these files was somewhat different than the later MSI method. To remove successfully:
isuninst –f C:\PROGRA~1\Citrix\ICACLI~1\Uninst.isu –c C:\PROGRA~1\Citrix\ICACLI~1\uninstpn.dll –a.
Recently in the lab updated the HTML5 receiver (version 2.3) on my storefront servers. After which hit issues with my connection going “in and out”.
Turns out my patching wasn’t up to scratch. XenApp 6.5 environment and moving hotfix rollup pack 7 (per CTX129229) resolved the issue.
What was instructive was enabling HTML5 logging per https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX217352
What did help me gather from it was it was session reliability-related. Sure enough when I switched it off all worked. Ultimately though did want to leave enabled so updating to latest HRP resolved but the HTML5 logging was very useful on this occasion as reasonably negligible so a good takeway
Recently was looking to utilize the vDisk replicator utility (see: https://www.citrix.com/blogs/2017/04/12/vdisk-replicator-tool/) which had a requirement for the PVS powershell snap-in. After a few times did manage to get the snap-in to work but have to be careful to get the syntax correct which was in the end:
C:\Program Files\Citrix\Provisioning Services Console>C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\installutil.exe Citrix.PVS.SnapIn.dll
After that was up and running with my replicator
