Important Notes

  • Caution: Several items in this hotfix rollup pack require you to edit the registry. Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Citrix cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
  • Skype might not recognize the camera, in which case the video portion of the Skype call is missing. To avoid this, make sure the camera is connected before launching Skype. If necessary, sign out of Skype and then sign back into Skype. In some cases, it might be necessary to disconnect and reconnect the camera before signing back into Skype.

Known Installation/Uninstallation Issues

  • For information about the order of deployment to servers in a farm and other helpful best practices guidelines, see Knowledge Center articleCTX120842 (Best Practices for Citrix XenApp Hotfix Rollup Pack Installation and Deployment).
  • Installing this hotfix rollup pack partially invalidates several hotfixes. This happens because not all fixes in these hotfixes are included in the hotfix rollup pack. Obtain or request the corresponding replacement hotfixes for any invalidated fixes you require. List of invalidated hotfixes
  • On some Citrix XenApp servers, silent installation of hotfix rollup packs can fail and installation with UI can display the following error message: “Operation could not be completed (error 0×00000002).” If you are affected by this issue, see Knowledge Center articleCTX133014 for more information.
  • If you intend to use the Universal Print Server feature, Citrix recommends that you install the Universal Print Server Client before installing this hotfix rollup pack. Otherwise – if you install the Universal Print Server Client after this hotfix rollup pack – a Windows Security dialog appears while you install the Universal Print Server Client.  If this happens, click “Install this driver software anyway” to finish the installation.
  • While uninstalling this hotfix rollup pack from servers with the Universal Print Server Client installed, you may be prompted for the XenApp 6.5 base installer file (mps.msi), available on the XenApp 6.5 original source media. Also, after uninstalling this hotfix rollup pack, you must uninstall and then reinstall the Universal Print Server Client in order for the client to function properly.

New Fixes and Enhancements in This Hotfix Rollup Pack

Application Streaming

  1. When launching an application that is streamed to server and no ICA session exists, the IMA Service creates an extraneous two RAD*.tmp temporary files (for a total of three) at C:\ProgramData. One of the files is passed to RadeRun and subsequently deleted by RadeRun. The other two files remain and accumulate over time. Only the one requisite file is created when launching a streamed to server application into an existing ICA session.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_app_streaming>[#LA0991]

End User Experience Monitoring

  1. The End User Experience Monitoring (EUEM) process notification thread might exit unexpectedly due to an “Access Denied” error (observable using CDFControl/CDFTrace). As a result, “Published Application Launch” events are not collected.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_euem>[#LA1619]
  2. As part of end-user experience monitoring, login script duration values are reported under Profile Load Server Duration rather than underLogin Script Execution Server Duration.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_euem>[#LA1099]
  3. The End User Experience Monitoring (EUEM) service intermittently fails to record published application launch data, causing the reports that display such data not generate properly.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_euem>[#LA3127]

HDX MediaStream Windows Media Redirection

  1. The Event log might not be generated for the HDX MediaStream Windows Media Redirection feature.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_hdx_mediastream_wmr>[#LA3983]

HDX RealTime

  1. After installing Hotfix Rollup Pack 1, HDX RealTime Webcam Video Compression might fail to work with certain applications. The following error message appears while attempting to capture a picture or video:”Failed to acquire image from the device.”[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_hdx_realtime>[#LA2637]

IMA Service

  1. The IMA Service might exit unexpectedly on provisioned XenApp servers.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_ima_service>[#LA2093]
  2. XML application resolution fails when the user and group information is not returned in the <AccessList> element.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_ima_service>[#LA3833]

Installing, Uninstalling, Upgrading

  1. On systems with Fix #LA1349 installed, the CITRIX-XML-SERVICE NetScaler built-in-monitor might incorrectly report that the server is not available for load balancing.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_installing_uninstalling_upgrading>[#LA3446]

Keyboard

  1. This fix address the following issues:
    • When using the Receiver for Mac, hiding and restoring the mouse pointer repeatedly in a MicrosoftLive meeting inside the virtual desktop session, the endpoint might become unresponsive.
    • When using Receiver for Windows, hiding and restoring the mouse pointer repeatedly in a GoToMeeting meeting inside the virtual desktop session, the endpoint might become unresponsive.

    [From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_keyboard>[#LA2825]

Licensing

  1. The number of Concurrent User (CCU) licenses in use can become inaccurate and erroneously appear higher than the actual number of active client connections. When this happens, users might receive an error message when attempting to connect and be denied connection.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_licensing>[#LA2622]

Local App Access

  1. When connected to a published desktop with Local App Access enabled, attempts to launch a published application using an instance of Receiver for Windows that is installed on the published desktop fail.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_local_app_access>[#LA3729]

Logon/Authentication

  1. Attempts to reconnect to a disconnected session fail for users in farms that span multiple forests using one-way trust. The issue occurs for users who log on to the Web Interface using their FQDN as follows:User name: username

    Password: password

    Domain: domainname.local- or -

    User name: domainname.local\username

    Password: password

    Domain: (grayed out)

    [From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_logon_authentication>[#LA1398]

  7. The Citrix Print Manager Service (CpSvc.exe) process might exit unexpectedly while session printers are being created shortly after logon.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_printing>[#LA2342]
  8. Changing the default printer within a published desktop or application might fail with the following error message:”Operation could not be completed (error 0×00000709). Double click the printer name and make sure that the printer is connected to the network.”[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_printing>[#LA3041]
  9. When reconnecting to a disconnected session, the Citrix Universal Printer might no longer be set as the default printer.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_printing>[#LA3117]
  10. On systems with Fix #LA1362 installed, the Spool Service (cpprov.dll) can leak memory.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_printing>[#LA3679]
  11. On systems with Fix #LA2063 installed, retained printers created in the session can be missing from the session after logging off and back on.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_printing>[#LA3839]
  12. The Citrix Print Service (Cpsvc.exe) can exit unexpectedly. The issue occurs as a result of a null pointer exception in an initialization routine.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_printing>[#LA3747]
  13. When reconnecting to a disconnected session from client device B, session printers created in the previous session from device A appear in the reconnected session, even though they are not configured in the policy for client device B.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_printing>[#LA3532]
  14. When reconnecting to a disconnected session from a different client device, autocreated printers from the previous instance of the session are not deleted; instead, they are available alongside any printers mapped from the second client device.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_printing>[#LA3837]
  15. An access violation can cause the splwow64.exe process to exit unexpectedly.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_printing>[#LA3689]

Server/Farm Administration

  1. The Health Monitoring and Recovery (HMR) Service can incorrectly report various tests as failing.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_server_farm_administration>[#LA1584]
  2. With XML Service DNS address resolution enabled, applications might fail to launch from servers whose name start with 0 (zero).[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_server_farm_administration>[#LA1349]

    • Citrix Group Policy Engine
    • Citrix MFCOM Service
    • Citrix XTE Server

    [From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_server_farm_administration>[#LA2377]

  4. This enhancement to the dscheck.exe utility adds support for the following commands for identifying Common Application entries that have invalid icons and deleting the entries from the datastore. A common application entry is considered to have an invalid icon if the entry has a non-zero UID that is not present in the “Icons” context of the datastore:
    • dscheck /Full Apps /?

      dscheck displays usage help text including help text for the new /IconCheck option.
    • dscheck /Full Apps /IconCheck

      dscheck scans all Common Application entries in the data store and prints error messages for any entries that have invalid icons.
    • dscheck /Full Apps /IconCheck <AppName> 

      dscheck scans the Common Application entry matching the specified “friendly” application name and prints error messages if the entry has an invalid icon.
    • dscheck /Full Apps /IconCheck /Clean

      Same as dscheck /Full Apps /IconCheck except that dscheck deletes all Common Application entries that have invalid icons.
    • dscheck /Full Apps /IconCheck /Clean <AppName> 

      Same as dscheck /Full Apps /IconCheck /Clean <AppName> except that dscheck deletes the matching Common Application entry if it has an invalid icon.

      Same as dscheck /Full Apps /IconCheck /Clean except that dscheck suppresses the prompt for permission to modify the database.
    • dscheck /Full Apps /IconCheck /Clean /Silent <AppName>

      Same as dscheck /Full Apps /IconCheck /Clean <AppName> except that dscheck suppresses the prompt for permission to modify the database.

    [From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_server_farm_administration>[#LA1425]

  5. Assigning a load evaluator from the Server node in the AppCenter might fail with the following error message:”Apply load evaluator failed – an error occurred. Try performing the task again. If the problem persists, contact support.”[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_server_farm_administration>[#LA2861]
  6. With a session linger policy enabled, when launching an application through a process chain with a loader process such as a vbs script, the application name might go blank in AppCenter when the loader process exits.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_server_farm_administration>[#LA3487]
  7. The usage of certain custom icons for published applications can stop application enumeration and the following error message appears when attempting to log on to Web Interface: “The system could not log you on. Ensure that you entered your details correctly and try again. If you are still unable to log on, contact your system administrator as your credentials may be invalid or there may be a problem with the authentication system.”To address this issue in its entirety, you must install both a XenApp hotfix and a XenApp Management Experience hotfix that contains Fix #LA3476.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_server_farm_administration>[#LA3476]
  8. When you add two or more applications to the Memory optimization application exclusion list of a Citrix Computer policy (… > Server Settings > Memory/CPU > Memory optimization application exclusion list), not all applications might be set correctly in the following registry key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Citrix\SFO\ProcessExclusionListFor example, if you add two processes – “notepad.exe” as the first process and “wordpad.exe” – to the Memory optimization application exclusion list, “notepad.exe” has the corresponding registry entry, but “wordpad.exe” does not.

    [From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_server_farm_administration>[#LA3917]

  9. On systems with Fix #LA1943 installed, users can launch a second instance of an application from a preexisting RDP session even if the application instance limit is set to “1.”[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_server_farm_administration>[#LA4102]
  10. A server can display a session load of 1 even though no session is logged on to the server. The issue occurs because the code to update the session table is not taking into account that a console session can be connected without being active. With this fix, a console session is not reported as active unless it is logged on.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_server_farm_administration>[#LA4075]
  11. When a “Degrade resolution first” policy setting forces a lesser resolution for a session than what the application is published for, the properties for the session as shown in AppCenter might not reflect the lesser session resolution forced by the policy; instead, the properties display the resolution configured for the published application. The issue occurs with sessions running on servers where Fix #LA2269 is installed.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_server_farm_administration>[#LA4111]

Session/Connection

  1. In certain scenarios, clicking a URL in Microsoft Outlook within a published desktop session fails to launch Internet Explorer while Google Chrome browser is running in the same session.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_session_connection>[#LA0937]

    Type: REG_DWORD

    Data: 1[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_session_connection>[#LA1855]
  5. When attempting to reconnect to a disconnected session that is locked, users might be prompted to reauthenticate. To enable this fix, you must set the following registry key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\WFShell

    Name: LockOnReconnect

    Type: REG_DWORD

    Data: <0=ON (default); any other value=OFF>For related information, see Knowledge Center article CTX138189.

    [From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_session_connection>[#LA3642]

  6. The following policy settings can fail to be applied properly:
    • View window contents while dragging
    • Menu animation
    • Desktop wallpaper

    [From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_session_connection>[#LA3145]

  7. When using the client for Oracle Solaris, clicking Disconnect on the Web Interface logs you off of the Web Interface but can fail to disconnect the server session if the session runs on a XenApp 6.5 server. As a result, attempts to reconnect to that session from the Web Interface fail as well.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_session_connection>[#LA2763]
  8. Attempts to delete a file from a mapped client drive fail unless the user has Write permissions to the file. To enable this fix, you must set the following registry key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\picadm\Parameters

    Name: EnableReadonlyAccess

    Type: REG_DWORD

    Data: 0[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_session_connection>[#LA3563]
  9. Custom administrators receive an Access denied error message while running the get-xazone and get-xaworkergroup PowerShell commands.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_session_connection>[#LA3198]
  10. Sessions can become unresponsive on the servers during logon or logoff.[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_session_connection>[#LA3702]

  13. When two users are connected to the same instance of an Access database located on a mapped client drive, neither user can see updates made by the other user when refreshing the database.To enable the fix, you must set the following registry keys:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\picadm\Parameters

    Name: EnableCcReadCache

    Type: REG_WORD

    Data: 1 (enable; default); 0 (disable)

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\picadm\Parameters

    Name: EnableCcWriteCache

    Type: REG_WORD

    Data: 1 (enable; default); 0 (disable)

    [From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_session_connection>[#LA2830]

  14. Attempts to reconnect to a disconnected session can fail with the following error message if the application instance limit is set:”You have exceeded the concurrent connection limit. Please contact your system administrator.”If no application instance limit is set, a new session might be created instead of reconnecting to a disconnected session.

    [From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_session_connection>[#LA3522]

  15. This enhancement introduces a registry key that allows you to manually increase the performance of server-to-client file transfers.Note: This enhancement might cause performance degradations for users connecting with versions of Receiver for Windows older than Citrix Receiver for Windows 3.4 Cumulative Update 2. If you plan to implement this enhancement, you must also:
    • Install server Fix #LA1263 on the same server.
    • Upgrade to Citrix Receiver for Windows 3.4 Cumulative Update 2 or its replacement for all users accessing the server.
    • Set the following registry key on the same server and then restart the server:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\picadm\Parameters

  1. Two-factor USB token authentication for smart cards might fail with the following error message:”System could not log you on, requested key container does not exist on smart card.”[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_smart_cards>[#LA3620]
  2. Improperly terminated smart card transactions can leave orphaned sessions running on the server and cause new sessions to become unresponsive during logon. Several processes (winlogon.exe, csrss.exe, and logonui.exe) keep running in the orphaned sessions.To enable the fix, you must set the following registry keys:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\SmartCard

    Name: TransactionTimeoutEnable

    Type: REG_DWORD

    Value: 1 (enable)

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\SmartCard

    Name: TransactionTimeoutValue

    Type: REG_DWORD

    Value: <any value more than 5 seconds>

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\SmartCard

    Name: SendRecvTimeout

    Type: REG_DWORD

    Value: Minimum timeout value, in seconds; should be 30 seconds or more. Any lesser value defaults to 30 seconds. This value must be at least 10 seconds less than “TransactionTimeoutValue”.

    Type: REG_DWORD

    Data: 1[From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_smart_cards>[#LA2130]

SmoothRoaming

  1. Even with Workspace Control/SmoothRoaming enabled, users are sometimes presented with a locked desktop when trying to reconnect to a session. The issue occurs when making several reconnection attempts in rapid succession, specifically when trying to reconnect multiple times within the same 20 seconds. This behavior is as designed as the minimum wait time before a session can be disconnected is hard-coded at 20 seconds. Thus, making an additional reconnection attempt within 20 seconds of the previous attempt causes users to be presented with a locked desktop. This fix introduces support for the following registry key that allows you to configure the minimum wait time before a session can be disconnected:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Citrix\WFShell

    Name: SessionReconnectMinTimeInMilliSeconds

    Type: REG_DWORD

    Value: 20000 (default)For related information, see Knowledge Center article CTX138189.

    [From XA650W2K8R2X64R02]<cat_smoothroaming>[#LA2659]
