Citrix Receiver (1903) random WFICA32.EXE crash

Daniel Messer


After deinstalling Citrix Receiver 4.12 and installing Citrix Workspace App 1903 we encounter random Citrix session disconnects. (Different sessions from different Storefronts.) A similar  behaviour showed up with Citrix Receiver 4.9 but was finally fixed. Now it seems to be back.


Wfica32.exe was crashing when doing different stuff within the Citrix session like: Pasting content from the clipboard to notepad, running (starting) a powershell script in Powershell Studio 2018, general clicking etc.


Example Workstation:

OS: Windows 10 Professional (1809 Build 17763.379)

Laptop: HP Eliteboox x360 1030 G2


Windows Eventlog entry (german):

I made process dumps with Sysinternals procdump at one occasion.


(Password: wfica32.exe)


Windbg shows following information:

Is this a known bug? I can't find anything. Anyone seen this lately? Thanks for your help!

Also seeing WFICA32.EXE / Citrix HDX Crashing on using Citrix Receiver (1903) with our Win 7 Embedded Thin Clients. Happening when VNC'ing for remote support, also seen when using applications within Citrix, but as yet unable to establish what programs. Did you every get anywhere?


I see that Version: (1904.1) is now released, but we've not tested that yet to see if the problem is replicated - will try deploy to a terminal & see how we get on.

Unfortunately I still have the crashes with 1904.1. We don't use VNC. Almost any action can trigger the appcrash.

As nobody else in my office seems to have this issue and we heard no customer complaints it must be an isolated issue. I probably have to reinstall my laptop or something.
