Install Citrix Receiver the ‘easy’ way…


There is comprehensive documentation on installing the Receiver here: http://support.citrix.com/proddocs/topic/receiver-windows-40/receiver-windows-cfg-command-line-40.html 

There are THREE options, 1 manually via command line, 2 Via StoreFront server, 3 Email the configuration of the StoreFront (to then download it)

1. This is the command line to enable all the options.

c:\CitrixReceiver.exe /silent /includeSSON ADDLOCAL="ReceiverInside,ICA_Client,SSON,AM,SELFSERVICE,DesktopViewer,Flash,Vd3d,usb"

2. On the StoreFront server edit the client installation XML file to configure the installation options.

Contents of file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><Services version="1.0" xmlns="http://www.citrix.com/ServiceRecord"><Service type="store"><SRID>3643525964</SRID><Name>sp</Name><Address>https://storefront.dave.colv.in/Citrix/sp/discovery</Address></Service></Services>

Save the file

3. Double click to test it and then you can email the config

Open it with IE

Bonus item (does not work on W8/W8.1):

If you want the receiver to look more like the PNA add the command line “/STARTMENUDIR=\Dave.Colv.in\” to the receiver install so the full line is:

CitrixReceiver.exe /includeSSON ADDLOCAL="ReceiverInside,ICA_Client,SSON,AM,SELFSERVICE,DesktopViewer,Flash,Vd3d,usb" “/STARTMENUDIR=\Daves.Colv.in\”  /Store0="sp;https://storefront.colv.in/Citrix/desktops/discovery"
