Using Receiver Enterprise 3.4 inside a XenDesktop VM

The install string:

Citrixreceiverenterprise.exe /includeSSON ADDLOCAL=”ReceiverInside,ICA_Client,SSON,PN_Agent,USB,Flash” ENABLE_SSON=”Yes” LEGACYFTAICONS=”True” ENABLEPRELAUNCH=”True” SERVER_LOCATION=”https://server.domain.com” ENABLE_DYNAMIC_CLIENT_NAME=”Yes”

 

Easy, right?  Everyone has done something similar before.  But then, you can’t get the drives (like mapped network drives) to pass-thru into your XenApp server apps.  Why bother?  If there are mapped network drives inside the XD VM, users could simply double-click on a file in their home directory, and using redirection, it will auto-launch the associated application and then pass that file through.  Sweet, right?  Sure.  But, if you use the Enterprise client, it doesn’t work by default.  Fix it like this:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Modules\ClientDrive
Value name:  NativeDriveMapping
Type: REG_SZ
Value:  True  (It is FALSE by default)

Problem solved, enjoy!
