Virtual Desktop published application Edge chromium opens URL in local Edge browser

Björn Schläfli


Site: 1912 LTSR

Type: Virtual Desktops W10 20H2

Workspace App: 2105


Our users use W10 vDesktops with published applications for web browsing because these special desktops have no internet access. All Edge chromium related published apps from virtual apps started out of start menu don't launch a Citrix virtual apps session. Instead the url is opened in vDesktops local Edge browser. It's only affecting Edge. Published Google Chrome applications launch a Citrix seamless session, start Chrome with the configured url. It only happens on our Citrix virtual desktops. Fat Clients W10 20H2 which opens a published Edge Browser launch it seamless.

I've suspected Browser Content Redirection which is enabled by default and supported with CWA 2105, but the issue persists with CWA 1912 and 1912 doesn't support BCR. I've disabled BCR in a gpo, disabled the automatic installation of Edge Extension for Citrix BCR with the same result.

Anybody out there with a good idea for it?

On the Windows 10 vDesktop, there is Edge but there isn't Chrome I think.

You publish Edge with a url that needs to start. 


This could be vPrefer (https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX232210) or maybe you added the keyword prefer (https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX218060).


Hope this helps.

please let me know. 


Otherwise send a screenshot from the published apps configuration.
