Citrix XenApp 6.5 Flash 11.3 / 11.4 redirection

I see alot of searches from Google coming to my blog referring to the issues with Flash 11.3 and 11.4 hotfixes released by Citrix [#LA2283] & [#LA2565].

Quick recap of the issues fixed:

  1. With Adobe Flash Player ActiveX 11.3 installed on the endpoint device, Flash content cannot be redirected to be rendered on the client; instead, the content is rendered on the server.To enable this fix in its entirety, you must install both a client hotfix that contains Fix #LA2283, and
    • For XenApp: an HDX Flash hotfix that contains Fix #LA2283
    • For XenDesktop: a Virtual Desktop Agent hotfix that contains Fix #LA2283

  2. With Adobe Flash Player ActiveX 11.4 installed on the endpoint device, Flash content cannot be redirected to be rendered on the client; instead, the content is rendered on the server.To enable this fix in its entirety, you must install both a client hotfix that contains Fix #LA2565, and
    • For XenApp: an HDX Flash hotfix that contains Fix #LA2565
    • For XenDesktop: a Virtual Desktop Agent hotfix that contains Fix #LA2565

    [From OnlinePlug-in_12.3.200][#LA2565]

These issues are related to the Citrix Online Plugin version 12.3 and do not affect the latest Receiver 3.x versions.

This fix is applied on 2 sides to fix these issues. On the one side you need to install the fix for the Client (online plugin) and on the server side you need to install the HDX MediaStream hotfix.
