Symptoms and environment include:

  • Placeholders for the various Citrix applications are there, but the icon/image is not showing up. It will either have a blackĀ X or a blank square box.
  • The placeholders still have the application description and applications still run as expected.
  • You are running a version of Citrix Receiver software older than Citrix Receiver 4.9 LTSR.
