- Reboot the workstation and attempt to log in again.
- Uninstall and reinstall the latest version of the Citrix client (see below for details).
Uninstalling the Citrix Client:
First, ensure that Citrix is not running in the background:
- Open the Task Manager.
- Browse to the Processes tab.
- Right-click and select to End Process for any instances of the following processes: concentr.exe, wfcrun32.exe, and Receiver.exe
Having done this, proceed to uninstall Citrix: In the Control Panel, click Add or Remove Programs.
- Select the Citrix instance in the list of programs (Online Plug-in, Receiver, Presentation Server Web Client for Win32).
- Select uninstall or double-click the program.
- Delete the C:\Program Files\Citrix directory if it exists
- Open the CitrixReceiver.dmg file.
- Select Uninstall Citrix Receiver.
- Follow the prompts to uninstall.
Reinstalling the Citrix Plug-in:
- Download and install the Citrix client.
- Close all internet browsers and reboot the workstation.
- Login to Blackbaud Hosting Services.
- Launch Blackbaud application by clicking the application icon.
Once the Citrix Plug-in has been installed, access the hosted portal again from a fresh browser window. If your data is stored on the Boston or Orange County data centers, please run the Client Detection Wizard as instructed below before attempting to launch your Blackbaud Application.
- Log into your Application Hosting Portal for Boston or Orange County.
- At the top of the screen click Settings.
- Click Run Client Detection.
- You should now receive a notice near the top of the screen stating: "The preferred client is already available on your computer." or "An appropriate client is already available on your computer" if you already have Citrix installed on the workstation. Please note, however, if you are using Google Chrome you may always receive this Install prompt when visiting the hosting site. Google Chrome is not a compatible browser and it may have trouble recognizing that Citrix is installed on the machine.
If the .ica Citrix loader file becomes incorrectly associated with the wrong application, follow these steps to correctly associate it:
1. Citrix Connection Manager is wfcrun32.exe. To find its location, search the computer (Start button, then search box against the Local drive) and find the folder it is sitting in. Make note of this path.
2. In Control Panel > Default Programs > Set Associations, highlight ".ica". If the "Current Default" column shows something other than "Citrix Connection Manager", then click the "Change program..." button:
3. If the Citrix Connection Manager app is not listed in "Recommended Programs" (see screenshot below), then it needs to be associated manually, by locating the executable. Click "Browse":
4. Enter the path in Step #1. Highlight and select the wfcrun32.exe file and click "Open". Then click OK to get out of the Associations dialog box.
That file type will now be associated with Citrix going forward.
