Overview

Citrix Workspace app for Windows provides access to a user’s resources using Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops. These resources include SaaS, web and legacy applications and desktops. Citrix Workspace app provides access from the desktop, start menu, Citrix Workspace user interface and web browsers.

On a side note, it is possible to access resources on a Windows device using the Citrix Workspace app for HTML5, without installing the Citrix Workspace app for Windows. However, there is a significant feature disparity between both clients. For a complete overview of all features supported in each of the available Workspace app versions see the Citrix Workspace app feature matrix.

Installation

The latest version of Citrix Workspace app for Windows can be downloaded here. Citrix Workspace app can be installed on both your Windows clients and on your Citrix workers (your VDAs).

Although technically possible, there is no need to extract the files included in the CitrixWorkspaceApp.exe. It is highly recommended to install Citrix Workspace app using the executable directly.

It is possible to rename the installation file CitrixWorkspaceApp.exe to CitrixWorkspaceAppWeb.exe. Renaming this file removes the Add Account button from the last dialog window at the end of the installation. It also prevents the Add Account window (First Time Use, FTU) from appearing at first login. This mode is more suitable if only access through web store is planned.

In case you would like to install Citrix Workspace app without administrative privileges be aware of the following:

Command Line Arguments

Citrix Workspace app comes with many installation parameters. For a complete overview of all available parameters see the product documentation.

For a successful rollout make sure to understand each of the parameters and that they are aligned with your organization’s requirements. For example:

Are users allowed to use Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops without having to re-authenticate again? If yes, make sure to include the parameters /includeSSON to install the single sign-on component and /ENABLE_SSON=Yes to enable the single sign-on component.

You can also use the Citrix Workspace app Commandline Tool to help you to build the exact command line syntax (CTX227370).

When upgrading to Citrix Workspace app from an older and unsupported version (for example Citrix Receiver 3.4) make sure to use the parameter /rcu or /forceinstall (Citrix Workspace app 1909 and later).

Keep in mind that some components, for example enabling single sign-on, require a reboot of the local machine.

Here is an example of the command line syntax: CitrixWorkspaceApp.exe /silent /includeSSON /FORCE_LAA=1

Installation Path

The default installation path for machine-based installations is C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\ICA Client.

Citrix Workspace app writes multiple log files to the %TEMP% directory in the subfolder CTXReceiverInstallLogs-%Date%-%Time%. The following log files are created:

The exact location of the temp folder depends on the user executing the installation. For example, the temp folder of the local system account (used by Microsoft SCCM for example) is C:\Windows\Temp. The logfile path cannot be changed. It is possible to copy the log files to a different directory after the installation of Citrix Workspace app has finished.

Configuration

In an Active Directory infrastructure, Citrix Workspace app can be centrally configured using Microsoft group policies. This requires that the administrative templates (the ADMX and ADML files) for Citrix Workspace app are copied to your Group Policy Central Store.

ADMX files contain the actual settings. ADML files are the language files that contain the text displayed in the Group Policy Management Console.

The administrative template files are included in the installation directory of Citrix Workspace app:

They can also be downloaded from the Citrix website in the section Downloads for admins (deployment tools).

Copy the ADMX and ADML files to the Group Policy Central Store:

For testing purposes, you can copy the administrative templates to a local machine (C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions) and use the local group policy editor (gpedit.msc) to view and manage the settings.

Citrix Workspace app comes with both per-machine and per-user settings. There are many settings available, for example:

When launching a session, the user may be presented with a dialog window asking for permissions concerning device access (for example for local drives, webcams or microphones). By default, the Desktop Viewer client device restrictions are based on the Internet region. This behavior can be changed by creating and configuring the Client Selective Trust registry keys. As an administrator, you can define the access level by modifying the registry. There are four access levels:

The Client Selective Trust registry keys and values are not created automatically. They can be created and configured either using Group Policy or directly in the registry. The following article provides detailed information about how to configure Client Selective Trust registry settings: CTX133565.

In the article, a ZIP file can be downloaded containing both Group Policy files (ADM, ADMX and AMDL) and REG files. When using Group Policy to configure your clients the recommended approach is to use the ADMX and ADML files.

It is also possible to use the REG file to create and configure the Client Selective Trust registry keys and values. Use the file ReceiverCSTRegUpx64.reg for 64-bit operating systems or the file ReceiverCSTRegUpx86.reg for 32-bit operating systems. When using the REG file, keep in mind that users can change the device access settings. If you want to prevent the user from changing the preferences, set the value (Default) in the following registry key to false:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Citrix\ICA Client\Client Selective Trust\oidPredefinedSecurityPolicySettings\InstantiatedSecurityPolicyEditable

Sometimes, administrative templates from other products are required to configure the behavior of Citrix Workspace app.

Warning: the following configurations might allow malicious websites to launch a session silently to their malicious VDAs without any prompts.

For example, when the prompt Open Citrix Workspace Launcher is displayed in Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge on Chromium each time a user launches a StoreFront resource, configure the following settings:

Optimization and security

Working with virtual applications and desktops on remote systems means two things:

For this reason, various optimization features have been introduced.

Citrix HDX RealTime Optimization Pack

One of these features concerns the Citrix HDX RealTime Optimization Pack for Microsoft Skype for Business. The RealTime Optimization Pack consists of two components:

The HDX RealTime Media Engine performs media processing directly on the user device. It offloads the server for maximum scalability, minimizing network bandwidth consumption, and ensuring optimal audio-video quality.

The HDX RealTime Media Engine can only be installed when the Citrix Workspace app is already present.

Download the latest version of the Citrix RealTime Optimization Pack here.

For more information on the Citrix HDX RealTime Optimization Pack for Microsoft Skype for Business see the product documentation.

Optimization for Microsoft Teams

Concerning Microsoft Teams, no further optimization is required. All available optimization features are included by default in Citrix Workspace app and the Virtual Delivery Agent (VDA) in the following versions:

For more information see the product documentation.

Browser Content Redirection

The feature Browser content redirection prevents the rendering of whitelisted webpages on the VDA side. Instead, the webpages are rendered on the local endpoint.

For more information on how to configure Browser Content Redirection see the product documentation.

Citrix Desktop Lock

Some users in your organization may not need to interact with the local desktop of their PC; they may only need their virtual desktop. Citrix Desktop Lock can lock down physical PCs and effectively puts these machines into kiosk mode. When the PC is started, the user is presented with their virtual desktop instead of the desktop of the local OS.

Citrix Desktop Lock is a separate component and is not included in Citrix Workspace app. Citrix Workspace app must be installed before Citrix Desktop Lock can be installed. SSON must be enabled when installing Citrix Workspace app and a store must be configured, either during installation or using a Group Policy. Citrix Desktop Lock works on domain-joined machines.

Download the latest version of Citrix Desktop Lock here.

For more information about installing and configuring Citrix Desktop Lock see the product documentation.

App protection

Citrix Workspace app version 1912 introduced the new security feature app protection. This is an add-on feature for Citrix Workspace app that provides enhanced security when using Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops published resources. To be more specific. App protection provides anti-keylogging and anti-screen-capturing capabilities in a Citrix HDX session.

For silent installations, make sure to include the switch /includeappprotection when installing Citrix Workspace app (product documentation).

For more information about app protection see the product documentation.

Automation

Larger organizations may want to automate the installation and configuration of Citrix Workspace app on their Windows endpoint devices. There are various ways how to go about this.

Several deployment scripts (*.bat files) can be downloaded from the following URL in the section Downloads for admins.

Before they can be deployed, these batch files first need to be customized to suit your organization’s environment.

Another option is to use a custom PowerShell script such as this one:

You agree to indemnify and defend Citrix against any and all claims arising from your use, modification or distribution of the code.

Script Example

Save the script as a *.ps1 file and execute the script as follows:

Make sure to run the PowerShell script as an administrator. By default, the PowerShell script expects the installer (CitrixWorkspaceApp.exe), and optionally the registry file containing the Client Selective Trust registry keys and values, to be in the same directory as the script itself. Change the installation path and script name to your requirements.

Also, the script removes any existing machine-specific group policy settings by deleting the following two registry keys:

The script also imports the Client Selective Trust registry file, but this is optional. If no *.reg file is found the script will not end in an error.

You can execute scripts in an Active Directory Group Policy or using Electronic Software Distribution software (ESD), for example Microsoft SCCM.

Adoption

After initial installation and configuration, one of the most critical deployment phases is end-users training and onboarding. Citrix has prepared a list of Citrix Workspace end-user adoption resources that includes everything you need to help your end users to start using Citrix Workspace. You can find everything including a sample deployment timeline, email templates, flyers and adoption kits in tools section.

Uninstallation

Uninstalling Citrix Workspace app for Windows can be accomplished with the following command line: CitrixWorkspaceApp.exe /silent /uninstall

For more information see the product documentation

About this release

What’s new in 2103.1

Enhancement to keyboard layout configuration

The keyboard layout configuration now includes a Don’t sync option. The option is available for both the Group Policy Object (GPO) policy and the GUI configurations.

When you select the Don’t sync option, the server keyboard layout is used in the session and the client keyboard layout is not synced to the server keyboard layout.

Option to disable storing of authentication tokens

Authentication tokens are encrypted and stored on the local disk so that you don’t need to reenter your credentials when your system or session restarts.

With this release, Citrix Workspace app introduces an option to disable the storing of authentication tokens on the local disk. For enhanced security, we now provide a Group Policy Object (GPO) policy to configure the authentication token storage.

This configuration is applicable only in cloud deployments.

Microsoft Teams enhancements

DirectWShow is now the default renderer.

To change the default renderer, do the following:

Update the following value: «UseDirectShowRendererAsPrimary»=dword:00000000

Other possible values:

What’s new in 2102

Proxy authentication support

Previously, on client machines configured for proxy authentication, if the proxy credentials were not stored in Windows Credential Manager, you could not authenticate to Citrix Workspace app.

Now, on client machines configured for proxy authentication, if the proxy credentials are not stored in Windows Credential Manager, an authentication prompt appears, asking you to enter the proxy credentials. Citrix Workspace app then saves the proxy server credentials in Windows Credential Manager. This results in a seamless login experience because you do not need to manually save your credentials in Windows Credential Manager before accessing Citrix Workspace app.

Microsoft Teams enhancements

What’s new in 2012.1

This release addresses issues that help to improve overall performance and stability.

What’s new in 2012

Support for Italian language

Citrix Workspace app for Windows is now available in the Italian language.

Log collection

Log collection simplifies the process of collecting logs for Citrix Workspace app. The logs help Citrix to troubleshoot, and, in cases of complicated issues, facilitate support.

You can now collect logs using the GUI.

For more information, see Log collection.

Support for the domain pass-through authentication on Citrix Workspace

This release introduces support for the domain pass-through authentication on Citrix Workspace, along with the existing support for StoreFront.

Silent authentication for Citrix Workspace

Citrix Workspace app introduces a Group Policy Object (GPO) policy to enable silent authentication for Citrix Workspace. This policy enables Citrix Workspace app to log in to Citrix Workspace automatically at system startup. Use this policy only when domain pass-through (single sign-on) is configured for Citrix Workspace on domain-joined devices.

Enhancement to app protection configuration

Previously, the authentication manager and the Self-Service plug-in dialogs were protected by default.

This release introduces a Group Policy Object (GPO) policy that lets you configure the anti-keylogging and anti-screen-capturing functionalities separately for both the authentication manager and Self-Service plug-in interfaces.

This GPO policy is not applicable for ICA and SaaS sessions. ICA and SaaS sessions continue to be controlled using the Delivery Controller and Citrix Gateway Service.

Microsoft Teams enhancements

What’s new in 2010

This release addresses several issues that help to improve overall performance and stability.

What’s new in 2009.6

Support for FIDO2 authentication

FIDO2 authentication lets users take advantage of the local endpoint FIDO2 components. Users can now authenticate using FIDO2 security keys or integrated biometrics. Devices must have Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 and Windows Hello. For more information, see FIDO2: WebAuthn & CTAP.

Microsoft Teams enhancements

What’s new in 2009

This release addresses issues that help to improve overall performance and stability.

What’s new in 2008

Group Policy Object (GPO) administrative template configuration for keyboard layout and language bar

In addition to the existing GUI method, you can now configure keyboard layout and language bar using the Group Policy Object (GPO) administrative template.

CryptoKit update

Citrix Workspace app now supports Version 14.2.1 of the CryptoKit.

Language support

Citrix Workspace app for Windows is now available in the Portuguese (Brazil) language.

Authentication enhancement

To provide a seamless experience, the authentication dialog now appears inside Citrix Workspace app. The Store details appear on the logon screen. Authentication tokens are encrypted and stored so that you don’t need to reenter the credentials in case of a system reboot or session restart.

This authentication enhancement is applicable only in cloud deployments.

Enhancement to app protection

Previously, when you are trying to take a screenshot of a protected window, the entire screen, including the non-protected apps in the background, are blacked out.

Now, when you are taking a screenshot using a snipping tool, only the protected window is blacked out. You can take a screenshot of the area outside the protected window.

However, if you are using the PrtScr key to capture a screenshot on a Windows 10 device, you must minimize the protected window.

Additionally, this release addresses issues to improve the app protection feature.

Enhancement to Browser Content Redirection

What’s new in 2006.1

Support for Dual Tone Multi Frequency (DTMF) with Microsoft Teams

Support for Dual-Tone Multifrequency (DTMF) signaling interaction with telephony systems (for example, PSTN) and conference calls in Microsoft Teams. This feature is enabled by default.

Enhancement to Microsoft Teams screen sharing

With this release, the contents shared using Microsoft Teams are limited to the contents of the Desktop Viewer window. Areas outside the Desktop Viewer window are cropped, and the client’s local apps that overlap the Desktop Viewer appear blacked out.

For more information, see Screen sharing.

Update to Citrix Analytics Service

Citrix Workspace app is instrumented to securely transmit data to Citrix Analytics Service from ICA sessions that you launch from a browser.

For more information on how Citrix Analytics uses this information, see, Self-Service for Performance and Self-service search for Virtual Apps and Desktops.

What’s new in 2002

App protection

App protection policies work by filtering access to required functions of the underlying operating system (specific API calls required to capture screens or keyboard presses). This means that app protection policies provide protection even against custom and purpose-built hacker tools. However, as operating systems evolve, new ways of capturing screens and logging keys emerge. While we continue to identify and address them, we can’t guarantee full protection in specific configurations and deployments.

App protection is an add-on feature that provides enhanced security when using Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops. The feature restricts the ability of clients to be compromised by keylogging and screen capturing malware. App protection prevents exfiltration of confidential information such as user credentials and sensitive information that is displayed on the screen. The feature prevents users and attackers from taking screenshots and from using keyloggers to glean and exploit sensitive information.

Citrix recommends that you only use the native Citrix Workspace app to launch a protected session.

App protection is configured between StoreFront and the Controller using the Controller. For information about configuring app protection on the Controller, see App protection in Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops documentation. This configuration is then applied to Citrix Workspace app by including the app protection component using any of the following methods:

You can include the app protection component both during the Citrix Workspace app installation or on-demand installation.

For information about configuring app protection in Citrix Workspace app, see App protection.

Installer enhancement

In earlier releases, if an administrator tried to install Citrix Workspace app on a system that has a user-installed instance of the app, the installation was blocked.

With this release, the administrators can now override the user-installed instance of Citrix Workspace app and continue with the installation successfully.

Enhancement to Citrix Workspace Updates

In earlier releases, if Citrix Workspace app is installed by an administrator, a non-administrator might not update it.

With this release, a non-administrator can update Citrix Workspace app on an admin-installed instance. You can do that by right-clicking the Citrix Workspace app icon in the notification area and selecting Check for Updates.

The Check for Updates option is now available on both the user-installed and the admin-installed instances of Citrix Workspace app.

Support for outbound proxy

SmartControl allows administrators to define granular policies to configure and enforce user environment attributes for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops using Citrix Gateway. For instance, you might want to prohibit users from mapping drives to their remote desktops. This can be achieved using the SmartControl feature on Citrix Gateway.

However, the scenario changes when Citrix Workspace app and Citrix Gateway belong to separate enterprise accounts. In such scenarios, the client domain cannot apply the SmartControl feature because the gateway does not exist on the client domain. Instead, you can use the Outbound ICA Proxy. Outbound ICA Proxy lets you use the SmartControl feature even when Citrix Workspace app and Citrix Gateway are deployed in different organizations.

Citrix Workspace app supports session launches using the Citrix ADC LAN proxy. Either a single, static proxy can be configured or the proxy server can be selected at runtime using the outbound proxy plug-in.

You can configure outbound proxies using the following methods:

You can configure the outbound proxy using the Group Policy Object administrative template and the Registry editor.

For more information about outbound proxy, see Outbound ICA Proxy support in the Citrix Gateway documentation.

For more information about configuring the outbound proxy, see Outbound proxy.

Citrix Embedded Browser binaries

You can now exclude the Citrix Embedded Browser binaries so as to not use this feature.

This release introduces a command-line switch to exclude the Citrix Embedded Browser binaries. Run the /InstallEmbeddedBrowser=N switch from the Citrix Workspace app install location to discontinue the embedded browser feature.

You can exclude the Citrix Embedded Browser binaries only in the following cases:

If your version of Citrix Workspace app includes the Citrix Embedded Browser binaries and you are upgrading to Version 2002, the embedded browser binaries are automatically updated during the upgrade.

Enhancement to desktop sharing with Microsoft Teams

When you share your workspace using Microsoft Teams, Citrix Workspace app displays a red border that surrounds the area of the monitor that is currently being shared. You can share only the Desktop Viewer window, or any local window overlaid on top of it. When you minimize the Desktop Viewer window, screen sharing is paused.

Endpoint encoder performance estimator on Microsoft Teams

When the HdxTeams.exe process (the WebRTC media engine embedded in Citrix Workspace app that handles Microsoft Teams redirection) is launched, it estimates the best encoding resolution that the endpoint’s CPU can sustain without overloading. Possible values are 240p, 360p, 720p and 1080p.

The performance estimation process (also called webrtcapi.EndpointPerformance ) runs when HdxTeams.exe initializes. The macroblock code determines the best resolution that can be achieved with a particular endpoint. The highest possible resolution is then included during the codec negotiation between the peers, or between the peer and the conference server.

For information on configuring endpoint encoder, see Encoder performance estimator.

For information, see Optimization for Microsoft Teams in Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops documentation.

Enhancement to Citrix Analytics Service

With this release, Citrix Workspace app is instrumented to securely transmit the public IP address of the most recent network hop to Citrix Analytics Service. This data is collected per session launch. It helps Citrix Analytics Service to analyze whether poor performance issues are tied to specific geographic areas.

By default, the IP address logs are sent to Citrix Analytics Service. However, you can disable this option on the Citrix Workspace app using the Registry editor.

To disable IP address log transmissions, navigate to the following registry path and set the SendPublicIPAddress key to Off.

For more information on how Performance Analytics uses this information, see Self-Service for Performance.

What’s new in 1911

Workspace with intelligence

Support for automatically enrolling Windows 10 devices in Citrix Endpoint Management

The auto-enroll feature is in Technical Preview. Citrix recommends using technical preview features only in test environments.

Citrix Workspace app now allows Windows 10 devices to automatically enroll in Endpoint Management.

What’s new in 1909

New installer switch

Use this switch to clean up any existing configuration and registry entries of Citrix Workspace app on the system in the following scenarios:

/forceinstall switch is the replacement for /rcu switch.

For more information, see Common parameters in the Install section.

Fixed issues

Fixed issues in 2103.1

Logon/Authentication:

Even after you enable the keep me signed in and don’t ask again for 60 days policies, Microsoft Azure Multi-Factor Authentication might still prompt for authentication.

We recommend that users exit their stores rather than log off from their stores. If users log off from stores using webview authentication, they might be prompted for authentication again because Internet Explorer cookies are cleared in such scenarios. By default, the fix is enabled (cookies are stored). You can disable the fix by using the GPO option. If you disable the fix, the cookies are not stored and are cleared during logoff.

On Azure Active Directory (AD) joined devices, when Citrix Workspace app attempts to access a store and then passes through endpoint logon credentials, users might not be authorized to log on. Also, there is no option to log on with a different user account. [CVADHELP-14844]

Fixed issues in 2012.1

Automatic update of Citrix Workspace app from Version 2012 to a later version fails with the following error message:

“Could not load file or assemble Newtonsoft.Json”

The issue occurs only when automatic update is enabled on an admin-installed instance of the Citrix Workspace app.

As a workaround, download Citrix Workspace app Version 2012.1 or later from the Citrix Downloads page and install it manually.

Fixed issues in 2012

Installing, Uninstalling, Upgrading:

Session/Connection:

User Experience:

Attempts to launch a session might fail after you do a fresh installation of Citrix Workspace app for Windows or upgrade an existing installation to the latest. The session launch is stuck on the Preparing your desktop screen. The issue occurs when you configure Desktop Lock by using a Citrix Gateway URL.

A black screen appears for some time before Desktop Lock appears the first time you configure Citrix Workspace app for Windows by using a Citrix Gateway URL and Desktop Lock.
