Client Deployment WebInterface 5.4.0 / XenApp 6.5

This article describes how-to setup client deployment directly from the Web Interface (5.4.0). When the Web Interface is installed directly from the XenApp installation, there is no question/part where the clients are installed from the DVD.

First we copy the clients from the folder: “Citrix Receiver and Plug-ins” on the installation source to the following location: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\Web Interface\5.4.0\Client



Then navigate to: “C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\XenApp\conf” and open (with notepad) WebInterface.conf


Search for the following section:


Uncomment the client which you want to deploy. If you want to deploy everything then it looks like this:


But the “Citrix Online Plugin” is replaced bij the Receiver. So the CitrixIcaWin32 line must be changed to:


And then the config file look like this:


Save it, restart the Web Interface (iisreset or restart server Knipogende emoticon)

Open “Client Deployment” in the Web Interface management console.


Select: “Perform client detection at logon” (and/or Offer upgrades for clients)


Select: “Deploy a native client


Now the following screen will appear when a user hasn’t got a client and want to access his applications:


Update: If the PNAgent isn’t required for your environment. The use the CitrixReciever.exe file. So the ClientIcaWin32 line would be:

  1. One more thing to add to this post. There is a section in the Webinterface.conf file which is redirecting the users without a client to The section is:
    “” # ClientDefaultURL= “”
    This has to addres the local web server not the web

  2. Goed bericht. Dit is het enige dat ik kon vinden wat mij uiteindelijk heeft geholpen.
    Ik had alleen wat moeite met de volgende regel: But the “Citrix Online Plugin” is replaced bij the Receiver. So the CitrixIcaWin32 line must be changed to:
    Het kwam op mij over alsof ik die regel moest ingeven wanneer ik de online plugin wilde terwijl het juist precies andersom was.

    Desalniettemin: Hartelijk dank!!
