Google Chrome Automate "Detect Receiver"


Dylan Anker

Question

Hello,

 

We are using HP Thin Clients with Google Chrome to connect to our Citrix environment.

Is there a way to get past the "Detect Receiver" window when entering our Storefront URL? or is there a way to automate that process?

 

We're updating the Thin Clients through a management console scripted.. so we can't use any user input. Also the Thin Clients have a Write Filter that is enabled. This means that everything done locally by the user will be forgotten after a restart.

 

When we choose "Detect Receiver" and "Already Installed" it works like a charm. Does it store these settings somewhere locally (registry or file)? If so, we could capture those settings and deploy them to all Thin Clients when updating them..

 

We already tried to set "pluginAssistant" to false (did nothing) and "protocolhandlers" to false ("Detect Receiver" is gone.. but won't use local receiver anymore, just HTML).

 

Citrix Storefront: 3.14

Citrix XenApp: 7.17

Receiver Thin Client: 4.12

Chrome version: 80

 

Thanks in Advance.

Hello, It's a limitation. For browsers other than IE, Receiver still needs user inputs for detection purposes so you can't skip it. 

I think you can consider forcing users to use Receiver for HTML5 if possible.
