Citrix Online Plugin 13

Citrix have recently released Citrix Online Plugin 13.1 on their website. This is only available as part of Citrix Receiver 3.2 here.

This makes it difficult to have the same experience which many are used to with older versions of the client especially in the enterprise arena with Program Neighborhood Agent.

To install the plugin in the same way as before you can use the following installation string.

CitrixReceiverEnterprise.exe ADDLOCAL="ICA_Client,SSON,USB,DesktopViewer,Flash,PN_Agent,Vd3d" ENABLE_SSON="Yes"

Below are all of the installation string options. You need to remove the option "ReceiverInside" section

CitrixReceiverEnterprise.exe /silent ADDLOCAL="ReceiverInside,ICA_Client,SSON
,USB,DesktopViewer,Flash,PN_Agent,Vd3d" SERVER_LOCATION="my.server" ENABLE_SSON=
"No" INSTALLDIR="C:\myfolder" ENABLE_DYNAMIC_CLIENT_NAME="No" CLIENT_NAME="my_ov
errided_name" DEFAULT_NDSCONTEXT="Context1,Context2"

And if you want Citrix Online Plugin 14 the process is similar with 3.3 onwards
As PNA has been removed from Receiver 3.3, go check out this link

Otherwise do the same install for Online Plugin 14

  2. You can extract ICA client installation from Citrix Receiver by 7-zip extracting the installation.

    1. Spot on, I used this mechanism initially and installed all of the MSIs manually. The cmdline above will install it in one package and makes sure that items such as SSON are not left off.

  3. Is there a known benefit to using the 13 client? We are currently on 12.3

    1. I suspect there will be various security hotfixes and some improvements etc. I remember reading that Citrix employed the co-author of PCanywhere to rewrite the client for version 13 to massively improve it. I haven't seen any major improvement personally though.
