It has been a while since I last posted something here. And in my previous post in the ICA-PowerShell series, I mentioned doing another post about simulating keyboard and mouse. To sum up, part 1 was about the ICO Object basics, part 2 was about controlling the ICA session appearance and in part 3 I talked about using the ICO Object’s events.
Enabling Simulation API
The ability to control the mouse and keyboard in an ICA session is not enabled by default. For this to work, you will need to enable the Simulation API. This is done by adding a registry key to the machine you will be using:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\ICA Client\CCM] "AllowSimulationAPI"=dword:00000001
The “CCM” subkey doesn’t exist by default, so you should create it. If you’re using a 32bit platform for testing, the registry key should look like this:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICA Client\CCM] "AllowSimulationAPI"=dword:00000001
