Error installing Citrix Workspace App in the Platform layer

Nick Panaccio


Anyone ever come across this error message before while upgrading or installing Citrix Workspace App? I'm trying to install CWA 2006, upgrading from Receiver 4.9.6001, in my Platform layer, but it's failing every time. I tried installing the latest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable, but that didn't work, either. I've tried both CWA 2002 and 2006 with the same results. Installing it on a clean Platform layer works fine, though I really, really don't want to have to go that route if at all possible.

Normally, I'd just go the new layer route, but since we're all working from home, I don't have access to the microphones whose drivers I need to include in the image, so that isn't an option for me. I did attempt to run RCU, uninstall VC++, uninstall .NET, and then reinstall them all to no avail. I then created a Platform layer revision based on an earlier OS layer, and it worked. The layer that broke it was a Windows Update revision, so I'm not sure what went wrong there. I seem to be okay now, though.
