For those who would like a quick “Google-able” article on how to deploy the new XenApp Web Plugin (formerly known as the web client) this is the article for you.

To do this, you basically follow the instructions from CTX114097, “Deploying the Web Client 10.1 for Windows through Web Interface 4.6” but with a few modifications.

First, download the XenApp Web Plugin from Citrix.

For Web Interface 4.6

  • Rename XenAppWeb.msi to Ica32Web.msi.
  • Copy Ica32Web.msi to \Program Files\Citrix\Web Interface\4.6.0\Clients\ica32. (Create the ica32 directory if it does not exist.)
  • From a command prompt run iisreset.

For Web Interface 5.0:

  • Copy XenAppWeb.msi to \Program Files\Citrix\Web Interface\5.0.1\Clients\ica32.
  • (A rename of the file is not necessary.)From a command prompt run iisreset.

Automatic Deployment and Installation of the Web Client

Web Interface 4.5 was the last version of Web Interface where automatic deployment and installation of the web client was an option. This is due to increased browser security in Internet Explorer and Vista making this capability too difficult. That said, you can only configure "automatic detection" in versions 4.6 and 5.0 as described above, versus "automatic deployment."

You should run Web Interface 4.6 instead 4.5 but if you must know how to configure automatic deployment, refer Citrix's article "How to Deploy the ICA Web Client Through Web Interface 4.5."

ensure you have the appropriate permissions set on that folder, so users don't get prompted for a username/password.  Add authenticated users - execute to the ica32 folder.
