Keyboard cursor jumps when connected to VDA through Netscaler HTML5 client

Recommended Posts



Catched strange behavior when connectiong to VDA (Remote Desktop Server - session-based) through Netscaler using HTML5 client.


In some fields when typing text coursor jumps to beginning of string and replaces 1st letter, this issue only appers with some letters, I found 'a', 'r', 'k'

Also I have 2 keyboard layouts at server US and RU.

When cursor is in "bad" field - I can't change language, even when change to RU manually in language bar it remains English.


For example I start "mstsc" application

- I can enter server name without any issues

- then credentials promtp for user/password - I cannot enter username correctly (described issue)

I tried to connect from 3 different PCs (Win10) - same behavior.


When connecting directly to Storefront with HTML5 client or using Citrix Workspace - no any issues, I facing it only when connecting through Netscaler HTML5 client (X1 theme).


I tried to add IgnoreRemoteKeyboardLayout option. but without success:

"reg add “HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout” /v IgnoreRemoteKeyboardLayout /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001 /f"


My Config:

Netscaler (ICA Proxy)(  ---  XenDesktop (Controller + Storefront)(7_1906)  ---  VDA (App Publishing) (Windows Server 2016)



Is anyone have idea how han I fix this?



Same behavior if I leave only EN layout. Affected only Credentials prompt window, cannot reproduce it in any other windows.
