I have a notebook with a fully patched Vista Ultimate and there was a Citrix ica-client installed for access on our citrix-server(s).

Once the client couldn't access the server – it took so much time (> 5 min) and everything froze. I did an uninstall und cleaned up the registry.

But now it's not possible to reinstall a xenapp-client even the newest directly from

  • What could be the reason?
  • How to fix this issue?

PS: At the moment I start a vm with an XP and the citrix-access runs like a charm, but that only could be a work-a-round.

I think i'm missing this: "Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86) ". I will give it a try. – Ice Feb 8 '10 at 17:56

Thanks for the hint, it must have been the "Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86)" which was missing.

It works now as expected.
