Installed LTSR 1912 on a test system and Citrix files for Windows won't launch

Dennis Parker


Title basically says it all....I get an error with a link to

https://github.com/Microsoft/dotnet/blob/master/releases/net471/KnownIssues/510901-BCL Apps targeting .NET-4.6.1 that use .NET Standard libraries might be broken when running on .NET 4.7.1.md


Couldn't download Citrix files for Windows 1912 due to Citrix web site issues tonight, but anybody else seen this and does the new version work?


Edit: It was late and I was tired...

The VDA is on Windows Server 2016. 

I checked registry keys and it says .NET 4.7.1 is installed.

I installed latest patches for everything I could find after posting this and still have the issue.

I was able to download Citrix Files 1912 from Citrix website and installed on the servers and still have the issue. 

Going to be opening a ticket with Citrix here soon. If I come up with anything, I will post in the comments.

I did not open a ticket with Citrix support, but I got it working.


Following the information in the link provided, I started removing entries from the CitrixFiles.exe.config file until it seemed to be working. Then I got kind of lucky and restored back to the original and removed the last entry I had removed and it still seems to be working.


The lines that I removed:


    <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
        <assemblyIdentity name="System.ValueTuple" publicKeyToken="cc7b13ffcd2ddd51" culture="neutral" />
        <bindingRedirect oldVersion="" newVersion="" />
