Fixed Issues List: 1.00

Version DateChange Description
1.00 September, 2009 Initial release

The following issues have been fixed since the previous release of this product:

Client Device Issues

  1. The client session stops responding when copying a file from a local drive to a server drive.

    [#191535]

  2. Mapped client COM ports might not function properly in the session.

    [#193276]

  3. If you are using Microsoft Vista and have a minimized session window, after changing any display setting, the window will not maximize to its original size or position.

    [#196141]

  4. You cannot browse the NDS tree pressing the Context button on client devices where both the NDS client and Version 11.0 of the plug-in are installed.

    [#203739]

  5. When a client is connected to multiple sessions, the USB device list pop-up dialog box is not displayed.

    [#205633]

  6. Some USB devices, including the Bloomberg keyboard with biometric fingerprint scans, do not redirect consistently.

    [#206430]

Content Redirection

  1. Client to server content redirection fails when client proxy settings are enabled in Internet Explorer.

    [#186248]

  2. Server to client content redirection fails over HTTPS protocol when an invalid certificate is encountered. This fix adds support for the following server-side registry key that allows clients to ignore invalid certificates and proceed to the redirected link. To enable the fix in its entirety, you must also set deploy a server-side hotfix that contains Fix #192003.

    [#192003]

  3. If content redirection is configured to open Microsoft Excel and Word file types within their respective applications on the server, those file types can be absent from the list of types when the user right-clicks and selects New on the Desktop.

    [#194973]

  4. Client to server content redirection does not work for file paths that exceed 255 characters.

    [#207237]

Installing, Uninstalling, Upgrading
  1. After upgrading from Version 9.230 to Version 11.0 of the plug-in, single sign-on does not work with the plug-in.

    [#207607]

Keyboard
  1. Users cannot type in a full-screen session after pressing Windows logo key + L.

    [#185360]

  2. Users cannot type in a full-screen session after pressing Windows logo key + U.

    [#190268]

  3. In Version 11.0 of the plug-in, pressing the F1 key fails to bring up context-sensitive Help for applications running in the session.

    [#197744]

  4. Pressing the F1 function key to invoke Help in a published application can cause the session to break. Depending on the way the ICA listener is configured, the session then disconnects or resets.

    [#205061]

  5. Over low bandwidth connections, the toggle state of the Num Lock key in the client session might not match the state on the server. To enable this fix, you must set the following client-side registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Citrix\ClientSettings
    Name: EnableQSL
    Type: REG_DWORD
    Data: 1

    [#208643]

  6. In Version 11.0 of the plug-in, when the session option Apply Windows key combinations is set to In Full Screen Desktops only, Windows key combinations are executed on the local client device rather than inside the session.

    [#208817]

Logon/Authentication

  1. Even if only a single client certificate is installed, you are prompted to select a client certificate to use. With this fix, Internet Explorer’s zone-specific setting "Don't prompt for client certificate selection when no certificates or only one certificate exists" is honored if set.

    [#169460]

  2. You cannot use SSON on a Novell NDS system configured with ZENworks Desktop Management Agent and Dynamic Local User (DLU) if you have the same user name for different Organizational Units or contexts.

    [#187949]

  3. A race condition can cause the ssonsvr.exe process to prevent the user's profile from loading at logon.

    [#192527]

  4. As of Version 10.150 of the plug-in, single sign-on, if enabled, ignores /username parameters passed from the command line.

    [#195981]

  5. Blackberry Pearl devices fail to remote properly to Virtual Desktop Agents running on Windows XP SP3. Even though the device appears as remoted in the toolbar, it is not visible in the session. The following error message appears in some cases:

    "The device %1 failed to attach."

    [#201041]

  6. Version 11.0 of the XenApp plug-in does not allow connections using an alternative UPN suffix.

    [#203818]

  7. In certain configurations, after upgrading to Version 11.0 of the plug-in, the Change Password dialog box does not appear following the message that states that the user's password has expired and must be changed.

    [#203868]

  8. This fix corrects the following issue with the pass-through client installed on a server: Single sign-on might fail within a pass-through session; instead, the user is asked for credentials to log on. The issue occurs when using a logon script that delays the logon by more than two minutes, which triggers a time-out condition on the host. The time-out can be extended by setting the following registry key on the patched server:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\Install
    Name: ssonticketttl
    Type: REG_DWORD
    Data: <time-out, in seconds>

    [#204644]

  9. When a user's domain password expires, Version 11.0 of the plug-in displays the message, "You are required to change password at the next logon" instead of prompting the user to change the password.

    [#204996]

Printing

  1. Incorrect fonts might appear in printouts. Font substitution occurs when fonts installed on the client device fail to be included in the spool file. To enable this fix, you must also deploy the corresponding server-side Fix #179220.

    [#179220]

  2. After applying Fix #179220, the print spooler might stop responding. To enable this fix, you must also deploy the corresponding server-side Fix #192617.

    [#192617]

  3. Depending on the selected paper type, print previews and printouts using the Citrix Universal Printer are improperly scaled and aligned. This results in page margins and font placements that are different from those of the original document. This is the client-side component of a fix that resolves the issue. To resolve the issue in its entirety, you must also install server-side Fix #198079.

    [#198079]

  4. After applying Fix #179220, the size of PDF print spooler files grows unexpectedly large; some font substitutions might also occur. To enable this fix, you must also deploy the corresponding server-side Fix #201114.

    [#201114]

  5. On occasion, the PCL2BMP.exe process becomes unresponsive, causing print jobs in the client print queue to be stalled.

    [#202052]

  6. Plug-ins might become unresponsive for 60-90 seconds while attempting to validate inaccessible print servers or orphaned printers.

    [#204377]

  7. Plug-ins might become unresponsive for 60-90 seconds while attempting to validate inaccessible print servers or orphaned printers.

    [#206382]

  8. Novell printers fail to autocreate on systems with Fixes #204377 and/or #206382 installed.

    [#212197]

SDK

  1. When using the ICA Simulation API SDK, the vertical and horizontal resolution settings are not honored when connecting to a desktop session.

    [#200232]

  2. Versions 9.230 and later of the client do not honor HTTP browser settings using the ICA Client Object when connecting to certain server configurations.

    [#209427]

Seamless Windows

  1. This is the client-side component of a fix that addresses the following issue. To resolve the issue in its entirety, must also install server-side Fix #185005:

    After disconnecting from a published seamless toolbar, the area of the desktop originally occupied by the toolbar is not refreshed. After reconnecting to the same published seamless toolbar, the toolbar occupies an area adjacent to the original location. The original location is still not refreshed.

    [#185005]

  2. If you add an application to the exclusion list in a multiple monitor environment, the application covers the Windows Taskbar when maximized in seamless mode. This is the client-side fix that corrects the issue. To resolve the issue in its entirety, you must also deploy a server hotfix that contains Fix #190421.

    [#190421]

  3. On rare occasions, published applications cover the client Windows Taskbar after unlocking the client or resuming from a screen saver.

    [#192486]

  4. In multi-monitor environments, a fixed-size published desktop might not maximize to the proper size or to the correct monitor.

    [#192764]

  5. Selecting the Windows Taskbar icon of a published application and then pressing Alt+F4 to terminate the application might fail.

    [#193561]

  6. The Start menu in a published desktop might be truncated when the XP theme is enabled on the server.

    [#194313]

  7. Desktop icons and maximized local application windows are not resized to the correct work area when launching a published toolbar.

    [#196539]

  8. When an Enhanced ScreenTip appears in 2007 Microsoft Office suite Service Pack 1 applications, blank buttons appear in the taskbar and blank entries in Program Neighborhood Connection Center.

    [#197453]

  9. The color depth of a desktop published over a WAN connection is reduced to 8 bit when the session window is first maximized.

    [#198426]

  10. Running Microsoft NetMeeting in multiple monitor environments causes a desktop session to span all monitors.

    [#198603]

  11. After locking and unlocking a multiple monitor client device, a published desktop is restored only to monitor 1.

    [#202861]

  12. After locking and unlocking a client device logged on to a published desktop, a border appears around the desktop.

    [#202895]

  13. In seamless connections, the Change Password dialog box might appear behind other another window.

    [#206330]

  14. Child windows of some applications position to where their lower boundaries dip below the Windows Taskbar. This is the client-side component of the fix. The resolve the issue in its entirety, you must also install a server-side hotfix that contains Fix #206851.

    [#206851]

  15. In multiple monitor environments, after minimizing a full screen session, utilizing the local Windows Taskbar, and then maximizing the session, the session window border, usually invisible, becomes visible.

    [#208697]

  16. If you press the F11 function key in Internet Explorer in a single monitor configuration, Internet Explorer appears behind the Windows Taskbar rather than going into full-screen mode.

    [#210355]

Session/Connection

  1. When using the Workspace Control feature to reconnect to multiple applications from the Web Interface, Internet Explorer might become unresponsive for several minutes and not all sessions are reconnected.

    [#181830]

  2. When using a pass-through client, two separate sessions are created rather than just one. For example, connecting to a published desktop (first session) and within that session using a client installed on the published desktop creates a second, separate session.

    [#189392]

  3. While connecting to a session, the error message "Failed to Set Event Logging" might appear. The issue occurs when the LogFileWin32= value is not present in the appsrv.ini file and the user does not have access to the default file path with which LogFileWin32= is added back into the appsrv.ini file.

    [#189756]

  4. Application enumeration fails for the Novell client on Windows 2000 desktops when using single sign-on with Windows credentials.

    [#190351]

  5. When using the Workspace Control feature, users see additional applications running in the Windows Taskbar when moving the session from one client device to another.

    [#191140]

  6. Certain applications might stop responding and become unresponsive when you click "Close Group" in the local Windows Taskbar. This is the client-side component of a fix that resolves the issue. To resolve the issue in its entirety, you must also install a server-side hotfix that contains Fix #191953.

    [#191953]

  7. Session sharing fails for certain users.

    [#195328]

  8. Persistent cache parameters do not work properly if environment variables are present in the cache path.

    [#195508]

  9. When running a published application, the user cannot launch a second published application because wfcrun32.exe cannot read a command-line parameter.

    [#196307]

  10. An application launched from a desktop or Start menu shortcut within a published desktop does not take focus upon launching.

    [#196628]

  11. The plug-in does not attempt to revert to the primary server URL once it completes a successful failover to a backup URL.

    [#197536]

  12. After locking and unlocking a client device logged on to a published desktop, instances of Microsoft Access running in the session might cause a number of error messages to appear onscreen.

    [#200505]

  13. Version 11.0 of the plug-in ignores Internet Explorer proxy settings when connecting through the Secure Gateway, the Access Gateway, or the Web Interface.

    [#202632]

  14. Under certain circumstances, the Citrix XTE Service does not properly disconnect a Terminal Services session. Specifically, the issue occurs when the network connection between the XTE Service and the client is interrupted and servers stop sending ICA KeepAlives to check the network connection status.

    [#205132]

  15. Version 11.0 of the plug-in fails to connect to the server when using WPAD proxy settings and the WPAD settings contain an errant proxy server.

    [#205784]

  16. Session sharing fails with Version 11.0 of Program Neighborhood when connecting to a server running Citrix XenApp™ 4.0, with Feature Pack 1, for UNIX.

    [#206017]

  17. After resizing, minimizing, and then restoring a session window with an application configured to launch in a fixed window, the session window appears transparent, without session content.

    [#206364]

  18. Sessions can fail to launch when launched immediately after a laptop comes out of sleep mode; the following error message appears in some cases:

    "This version of the client does not support selected encryption. Please contact your administrator."

    [#206713]

  19. After a failover to a backup URL occurs, applications fail to launch from the primary URL until you refresh your applications.

    [#206882]

  20. When resizing a published desktop configured to launch in a fixed window and moving a local window across the session window, a remnant trail of the local window covers the session window.

    [#208540]

SpeedScreen

  1. With SpeedScreen Latency Reduction Manager enabled and network latency consistently high, the mouse cursor continues to display as an hourglass and does not revert to the regular cursor.

    [#185797]

  2. Full screen video does not resize automatically when you change the desktop session resolution.

    [#205105]

System Exceptions

  1. Version 10.200 of the client might exit unexpectedly while running IBS ASW software.

    [#191241]

  2. The plug-in becomes unresponsive when you log off of a session.

    [#205080]

  3. A device rule policy that is configured incorrectly at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICA Client\GenericUSB\DeviceRules can cause the client to experience a fatal exception, displaying a blue screen when a client-side USB device is remoted to the desktop session.

    [#205576]

  4. When running three or more virtual desktop sessions, each with remoted USB devices, from the same endpoint, the Desktop Receiver can become unresponsive.

    [#207146]

TWAIN Redirection

  1. Certain barcode scanners generate incorrect keyboard input because the scanner does not include scan codes in KB messages that are null. To enable this fix, you must set the following registry key on the client device:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICA Client
    Name: AddScanCodes
    Type: REG_DWORD
    Data: 1

    [#193868]

User Interface

  1. As of Version 10.100 of the online plug-in, the right-click menu option to delete memorized server URLs is not implemented on the Server tab of the Properties sheet.

    [#191526]

  2. If an application fails to launch during a reconnect (whether on startup or after pressing Reconnect), the plug-in icon in the notification area incorrectly displays "Not connected."

    [#197225]

  3. Offline applications fail to enumerate when explicitly refreshing connection without a network connection.

    [#197254]

  4. Offline applications fail to enumerate for offline-streaming users.

    [#197494]

  5. Version 11.0 of the plug-in does not show Start menu and desktop shortcuts when using Novel Zenworks Desktop Management Agent 65 SP1a.

    [#201220]

  6. Start menu and desktop shortcuts fail to be created for users whose profile path is set with a lowercase drive letter.

    [#206607]

  7. When using a folder redirection GPO pointing to a UNC path, custom shortcut folder fail to be created; instead, shortcuts are created and placed on the desktop.

    [#207976]

  8. In multiple monitor configurations, the client Windows Taskbar is visible in full-screen sessions if the taskbar is located on the secondary monitor.

    [#208294]

Miscellaneous

  1. Version 11.x of the plug-in does not honor Internet Explorer proxy settings, if configured. Instead, the client attempts to access the host site directly to download the .ica file.

    [#184383]

  2. If you are using an ICA file embedded in a HTML page, there might be a ten second delay before the session initialization process begins.

    [#192104]

  3. Pressing the F1 function key within a Conferencing Manager session disconnects the session instead of invoking Help for the application running in the session; the following error message appears:

    "Error: An error occurred while processing your request. Try again. If you continue to receive this message, contact your administrator."

    [#196438]

  4. After a period of network inactivity, Program Neighborhood Agent disconnects from the server and any associated desktop icons disappear from the screen. This fix introduces a ping that prevents the issue. To enable the fix, you must set the following client-side registry keys. If both keys are set, HKEY_CURRENT_USER overrides HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE:

    On 32-bit Windows:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\PNAgent
    Name: NoPingOnNetworkStatusCheck
    Type: REG_DWORD
    Data: 0

    - or -

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Citrix\PNAgent
    Name: NoPingOnNetworkStatusCheck
    Type: REG_DWORD
    Data: 0

    On 64-bit Windows:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\PNAgent
    Name: NoPingOnNetworkStatusCheck
    Type: REG_DWORD
    Data: 0

    - or -

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Citrix\PNAgent
    Name: NoPingOnNetworkStatusCheck
    Type: REG_DWORD
    Data: 0

    [#192709]

  5. PNAxxxxxxx.rad files in the APPDATA\PNAgent\ResourceCache folder do not get cleaned up but accumulate. The files are written when you launch a streamed application and when you click "Application Refresh" if the application is marked for caching at logon time.

    [#196609]

  6. If you specify "LogFileWin32=wfcwin32.log" instead of a full path in appsrv.ini, the file wfcwin32.log is created in %Program Files%Citrix\ICA Client or %systemroot%\system32, instead of using the relative path and creating it in a folder in your user profile. This can cause errors if you do not have write access to these folders.

    [#196677]

  7. After network outages, active sessions might not get reconnected. The issue occurs when there are disconnected sessions at the time the network outage begins; in that case, the plug-in fails to reconnect to previously disconnected sessions when the network connection is restored.

    [#198198]

  8. Using Apple’s Safari Web browser on a Windows device where the plug-in is installed can cause Safari to exit unexpectedly.

    [#202777]

  9. Extended parameter passing from the Access Management Console fails and environment variables fail to be expanded.

    [#203899]

  10. When a XenApp Services site takes applications from multiple farms, an incorrect "offline user" setting takes effect.

    [#204497]

  11. When a XenApp Services site takes applications from multiple farms, applications cannot be launched offline.

    [#204504]

  12. Userenv.log files used to perform user profile monitoring grow excessively large due to entries written as a result of client activity. Specifically, an entry is written every three seconds, when the ConnectedTimer expires. This fix lets you reduce the number of entries written by extending the ConnectedTimer time-out up to 120 seconds. To do this, you must set the following registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\PNAgent
    Name: ConnectedTimer
    Type: REG_DWORD
    Data: <time-out, in seconds; valid range: 3 to 120>

    [#204685]

  13. Offline applications fail to stream when multiple farms are specified in the Web Interface and the client device is disconnected from the network.

    [#206124]

  14. If the plug-in is installed with single sign-on enabled and a local system language other than English, the plug-in runs under the System account rather than the user account.

    [#207006]

  15. Client-to-server packet priority tags are set incorrectly.
