Error: “This version of Citrix Receiver does not support selected encryption” When Launching XenApp Application

This issue has been resolved. The fix was first introduced with a special release of Receiver 3.4 CU2. This update had also been included with the 4.x version release of Receiver for Windows on June 26, 2013.

There is also a fix for this issue in HDX RealTime Optimization Pack 1.4.200. This update has also been included with 1.5 and all later versions of HDX RealTime Optimization Pack.

Solution 1

Note: If you are still experiencing this error, you may have a corrupt Receiver installation. Try the following steps, if a fresh installation is required:

  1. Download and Run – CTX137494 – Receiver Clean-Up Utility
  2. Verify in Control Panel > Programs and Features or Add/Remove Programs to confirm that the Citrix Receiver software is no longer present.
  3. Restart your computer.
  4. Download and install the latest Citrix Receiver.

Note: If the issue persists, restart your computer and try again.

Solution 2

If solution 1 did not resolve the issue and you are using Receiver 4.2 or newer, then try increasing the timeout by adding the following key:

Caution! Refer to the Disclaimer at the end of this article before using Registry Editor.

On 32-bit Windows:

Location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARECitrixICA Client

Name: VdLoadUnLoadTimeOut

Type: REG_DWORD

Data: Any value in seconds (Decimal)

On 64-bit Windows:

Location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432nodeCitrixICA Client

Name: VdLoadUnLoadTimeOut

Type: REG_DWORD

Data: Any value in seconds (Decimal)

Note: Registry key values are typically listed in decimal format, unless specified otherwise.

Same VdLoadUnloadTimeout registry setting is used in two places with two different default values:

  • By WfcRun32.exe, when it has seen an error from the engine, and needs to kill the WfIca32.exe process. It waits for this registry setting with a default of 1 second before terminating the process.
  • By WfIca32.exe, when it is loading virtual drivers. It waits for this registry setting with a default of 5 seconds for the Virtual driver to load.


If you set the registry setting, then both processes will use the value that you set (in seconds). There is no upper limit.

Lower limits are forced. If the value is less than 1 for WfcRun32.exe, it will be forced to 1. If the value is less than 5 for WfIca32.exe, it will be forced to 5.


Solution 3

Misconfigured registry value if there:

If registry key exists set it to default value =True

Note:

when we uninstall receiver check if all Citrix related keys under HKLMSOFTWAREWow6432Node keys are removed properly.
