SSL connections using Access Gateway Enterprise as the ICA proxy through the Web Interface fail, an SSL Error 85 occurs, and applications fail to launch. The issue occurs because the SSLSDK does not support the Certificate Policy Constraints extension in X509 certificates. This fix adds support for the X509 extension Certificate Policies. To enable this fix, you must set the following registry key:
The following, redundant security message appears when performing a restricted user privilege (per-user) installation of the online plug-in from a Web Interface site:
"To make it easier to access your resources in future, add this Web site to the Trusted sites zone."
With Excelhook enabled, reconnecting to a disconnected, minimized Excel 2010 spreadsheet session creates a ghost window in the top left corner of the screen.
To enable this fix, you must set the following registry key:
In a session with SpeedScreen Latency Reduction enabled, Marlett, Wingding, or similar types of illegible fonts can be displayed in text input fields before the specified font appears.
After restarting a client device, the Wfica32.exe and Concentr.exe processes start up under the SYSTEM account, causing session launches to fail.
COM port redirection can become slower the longer an endpoint is running.
A large spool file can cause the Citrix Print Viewer (cpviewer.exe) to exit unexpectedly while printing to a network printer.
Launching a seamless application published on XenApp 6 or XenApp 6.5 places the mouse pointer at the center of the screen.
When the Windows logon takes a long time due to, for example, Active Directory authentication, a full-screen published desktop does not display a status indicator to provide status feedback. This can be confusing to users. This fix modifies the behavior of the status indicator so that the indicator remains visible until the authentication completes.
In certain configurations, the CTRL + Space key combination fails to switch between IME language types.
When refreshing applications, applications published since the previous application refresh are appended to the bottom of the list rather than sorted alphabetically.
Microsoft Lync 2010 calls can experience a loss of audio several minutes into the call and the following error message appears:
"Speaker not working."
When sending multiple Adobe Acrobat print jobs to a session printer, random pages or entire print jobs can be lost.
The Pass-through option is not available as Receiver logon method. As a result, users are prompted for credentials.
The wfica.exe process can experience an access violation causing the plug-in to exit unexpectedly.
This fix addresses intermittent data corruption in the ICA Client Object during virtual channel writes.
Special Folder Redirection does not work for redirecting "Desktop" folders.
The wfica32.exe process can exit unexpectedly when using an auto-configured proxy connection.
Maximizing a session with Local App Access enabled causes the Preferences dialog box available from the Desktop Viewer to be placed behind the session window. As a result, the dialog box is inaccessible.
Exiting the Receiver can fail to terminate the wfcrun32.exe process in a timely manner. If you launch the Receiver again before wfcrun32.exe terminates, attempts to launch applications from the Receiver fail.
This fix addresses an issue that prevents Desktop Viewer from launching in pass-through sessions and that in the process keeps the client from launching as well.
This fix provides an improved user experience with Internet Explorer 9 and Citrix Receiver.
An initialization failure can prevent applications from launching and the following error message appears:
"Citrix Receiver could not launch the requested published application."
The Citrix Fast Connect command, pnagent.exe /reconnect /Qlaunch <Farm1:Desktop>, allows users to reconnect to an existing disconnected session from other client devices. However, if no disconnected sessions exist for the user, the following message appears when using the command:
"There are no sessions available for reconnection."
This feature enhancement allows you to suppress the message when no disconnected sessions exist. To do this, you must create the following registry key:
- On 32-bit Windows:
