How many people are used to right clicking the plugin agent icon in the system tray to get a list of all your published applications?  I would assume many.  

Citrix removed this design when Citrix Receiver came out.  Online Plugin is now a "Legacy Client".  However, it is actually still used inside Citrix Receiver.  However, it can't be downloaded standalone.

Now when you right click on the Citrix Receiver icon you can't get your list of applications anymore.  

IT is all about change to make things better, but I don't see how changing the way to make your users find their applications making things better!

So I did some digging and found you can sort of only install Online Plugin still.  When installing receiver, use the following command line and voila.  You can right-click your plugin icon and get all your published apps again!

I could not find this method in any offical Citrix documentation.  I did find a KB article that mentioned the new design and that Citrix wants people to publish to start menu or desktop.

Therefore, I don't know if this method will still be able to be used in the long term.  Let's hope so.


CitrixReceiverEnterprise.exe ADDLOCAL="ICA_Client,SSON,USB,DesktopViewer,Flash,PN_Agent,Vd3d" ENABLE_SSON="Yes"



I did this with the current version of the Receiver which is 3.0 which was released 8/24/11.
