Deploying Citrix Receiver with SCCM 2012R2

01/14/2015 24983 views

Looking for how to build a Citrix Receiver 4.1 or 4.2 application for SCCM 2012.  We are doing a very basic install, no SSO, no storefront, XenApp 6.5 servers, Win XP and Win7 workstations.  All applications are delivered as a published application accessed through web interface, (no streaming).

I'm not sure what the command line needs to be or the detection method.

I can extract all the files from the EXE wrapper but there are so many MSI files and additional EXE files in there that it's pretty confusing.  What I've found via Google so far doesn't appear as if it will be much help to me.

Don't extract it, just run the supplied exe.
If you run the exe with /? it will give you the supported CMDlines. Something like this:

Supported parameters:
/help               - Displays this usage information
/uninstall          - Removes an existing installation
/silent             - Suppresses all dialogs
/noreboot           - Suppresses all reboots and reboot dialogs
/preview            - Displays preview of changes without altering the machine
/extract <folder>   - Extract self-extracting package to an existing folder

MSI property values are supported and must be separated by spaces, e.g.:
   PROPERTY="Value" PROPERTY2="Value2"

Example silent command-line using all defaults:
   CitrixOnlinePluginFull.exe /silent

Example command-line specifying multiple options:
   CitrixOnlinePluginFull.exe /silent ADDLOCAL="ICA_Client,PN_Agent,SSON,Flash,USB,DesktopViewer" SERVER_LOCATION="my.server" ENABLE_SSON="No" INSTALLDIR="C:\myfolder" ENABLE_DYNAMIC_CLIENT_NAME="No" CLIENT_NAME="my_overrided_name" DEFAULT_NDSCONTEXT="Context1,Context2"

Good luck

I also found this PowerShell Script but I know Citrix also has a good support page on the subject.
Just my browser does load it at the moment.

Go with silent install/uninstall

This is the BAT file that I created this week to replace current Receiver versions with v4.2.100. Note: I renamed the downloaded Receiver exe so that I could easily know which version the file is.  The RCU did an excellent job; it was able to remove every client except ICA version 8 and ICA v10 web.

REM **  UNinstall any prior versions of Receiver
REM **  ReceiverLogs folder is created in the location where the utility is run and tracks all uninstall actions and results.
ReceiverCleanupUtility.exe /silent

REM **  Install the latest client
CitrixReceiver_v4_2_100.exe /silent STORE0="Store;https://mycitrix.umc.edu/Citrix/ummcWeb/discovery;Store"
