XenApp 7.6 – Steps to Add a Store in Receiver via GPO

To add or specify a store(s) via GPO:

  1. As an administrator, open the Group Policy Editor by either running gpedit.msc locally from the Start menu when applying policies to a single computer, or by using the Group Policy Management Console when applying domain policies.

    Note: If you already imported the ica client template into the Group Policy Editor, you can leave out steps 2 to 5.

  2. In the left pane of the Group Policy Editor, select the Administrative Templates folder.
  3. From the Action menu, choose Add/Remove Templates.
  4. Choose Add and browse to the Configuration folder for Receiver (for 32-bit machines, usually C:Program FilesCitrixICA ClientConfiguration, for 64-bit machines usually C:Program Files (x86)CitrixICA ClientConfiguration) and select icaclient.adm.
  5. Select Open to add the template and then Close to return to the Group Policy Editor.
  6. Under the Computer Configuration node, go to Administrative Templates > Classic Administrative Templates (ADM) > Citrix Components > Citrix Receiver > StoreFront, and select StoreFront Accounts List.
  7. Edit the settings. Use the information in the next step to add or specifiy the accounts.
  8. Enter a list of StoreFront accounts. For each entry, enter the following information, delimited by a semi-colon:
    • Store name. The name that the user sees for this store.
    • Store URL. The url for the store.
    • Store enabled state. Set to On or Off.
    • Store description. The description that the user sees for this store.

    Example: SalesStore;https://sales.example.com/Citrix/Store/discovery;On;Store for Sales staff

Note: Refer to Citrix eDocs for additional information.

There may also be refences to a previous URL in the registry . So before setting the URL in the policy it is necessary to check the registry.

Delete these locations


ComputerHKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareCitrixReceiverSRStorexxxxx ComputerHKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareCitrixDazzleSitesxxxxxx Computer HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareCitrixReceiverCtxAccount

If you are logged with a different account, then the URL is visible in HKEY_USERS


ComputerHKEY_USERSS-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxSoftwareCitrixReceiverSRStore ComputerHKEY_USERSS-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxSoftwareCitrixReceiverCtxAccount

Then run this command “C:Program Files (x86)CitrixICA ClientselfservicePluginCleanUp.exe” -cleanUse

This should remove any references to the old URL . You can then specify the new HTTPS URL with the policy setting.
