After standing up a new Citrix site from scratch, we found Citrix Receiver/Workspace apps configured on client workstations configured with SSO couldn’t launch applications.
After a few hours of checking event logs and enabling every Receiver/Workspace logging feature, I only found very generic errors. The most “relevant” error found in the Receiver/Workspace app log was:
Monday, January 13, 2020/4:24:30 PM ICA launch failed from delivery service at https://storefront.url/Citrix/Store/resources/v2/WERbunchofjunkBJQdfdBf4tUHdbWUgSGdbHRoIE1h/launch/ica; reason: GeneralAppLaunchError Monday, January 13, 2020/4:24:30 PM Got Comms Error Monday, January 13, 2020/4:24:30 PM Request failed: General error
Searching this error lead me to https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX133982
The Citrix article explains how to prepare a site for Pass-Through Authentication. Surprisingly, this parameter could be modified via the GUI in XenApp 6.5, but not newer.
Step two provides a PowerShell command which you can run on a site Delivery Controller:
asnp Citrix* Set-BrokerSite -TrustRequestsSentToTheXmlServicePort $True
To validate the parameter took, run:
Validate TrustRequestsSentToTheXmlServicePort is set to True, then refresh Receiver/Workspace app and relaunch your application.
One reply on “Citrix “Cannot start app. Please contact your help desk.””
