Server to client content redirection fails on Windows 2008 R2 with IE9


Host to Client Redirection (also known as Server to Client Content Redirection) does not work on Windows 2008 R2 with Internet Explorer 9 installed. Valid URLs that must be redirected to the client open on the server side instead of the client side.


Microsoft introduced a new value for redirection

HKEY_USERS”UserSID”SoftwareMicrosoftWindowsShellAssociationsUrlAssociationshttpUserChoiceProgid and this is set to IE.HTTP instead of HTTP which would make HTTP Redirection work correctly.

This new value is taking priority over what Citrix normally uses for HTTP Redirection: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/http/Shell/Open/Command/ “C:Program FilesCitrixsystem32iexplore.exe” %1.

Note: The same redirection issue occurs for other protocols such as HTTPS.

Internet Explorer Fix it available now – sucurity update scheduled for Friday

Earlier this week, an issue impacting Internet Explorer affected a small number of customers.  The potential exists, however, that more customers could be affected.  As a result, today we have released a Fix it that is available to address that issue.  This is an easy, one-click solution that will help protect your computer right away.  It will not affect your ability to browse the web, and it does not require a reboot of your computer.

Then, on this Friday, Sept. 21, we will release a cumulative update for Internet Explorer through Windows Update and our other standard distribution channels.  We recommend that you install this update as soon as it is available. If you have automatic updates enabled on our PC, you won’t need to take any action – it will automatically be updated on your machine.  This will not only reinforce the issue that the Fix It addressed, but cover other issues as well.

Today’s Advance Notification Service (ANS) provides additional details about the update we are releasing on Friday – MS12-063. We are planning to release this bulletin as close to 10 a.m. PDT as possible. This cumulative update for Internet Explorer has an aggregate severity rating of Critical. It addresses the publicly disclosed issue described in Security Advisory 2757760 as well as four other Critical-class remote code execution issues.
