  1. Hi Floris

    Thanks for all the stuff you share.

    I’ve been looking through your posts and have rewritten your programmatic ICA connections script to log into all the Citrix servers reported by a get-xaserver followed by hitting OK for the legal disclaimer and eventually logging the session off.

    What I would really like to do is extend this to report back if the session is actually in a usable state – the script is useful to log into (in one case) 141 servers and forms a visual check but ideally something fully automated that could provide what is in effect a scripted synthetic logon and report back that the servers are not only accepting connections but that they are usable would be immensely helpful.

    The OnLogon event triggers a little too soon in the process to be useful for this unfortunately and none of the other events look like they would fit.
    Any ideas of if this is even possible?

    1. Hi Tony,

      thanks for the feedback.

      If the OnLogon event is too soon in the logon process, it will be a bit difficult using ICA Client Object only. What you could do is trigger a script which writes a file to a shared location after logon (implement a logon script or RunOnce registry key). Make your script read if there’s a file written to the share within 5 minutes and you’ll know if the session logged on correctly.

      If you want help, drop me an email at fvdploeg@outlook.com.

      kind regards,

  2. Did send an email to the link mentioned above.
    I am trying to come up with a way to launch a link inside a client’s Citrix session that will start a new Citrix client session.
    This would allow each custom applicaiton to be run in its own window, sizeable, and be independent. Your excellent articles make me hopeful you might have some ideas.
    Best Regards
