Download link for Citrix Receiver on the Web Interface

Download link for Citrix Receiver on the Web Interface

You might find yourself in a situation where you would like not to activate the client detection feature on the Citrix web interface, but you still like your clients to be able to download Citrix receiver from your web interface.

First we disable client detection on the web interface:


Then to add a download link, we select Web Site Appearance and select Content – we will add the download link to the footer on all pages.

In the Content window select Add and English as language. Select Footer Text and enter a dummy text.


Now close the Citrix Web Interface Management, this is important because the management interface might overwrite your changes to the weinterface.conf we are going to work with.

Open the webinterface.conf file in the conf folder of your site, the default location is c:inetpubwwwrootCitrixXenAppconf in the end of this file you will find our dummy text.


Change the dummy text to the required download link.

<a href=”http://ctxweb/Citrix/XenApp/Clients/CitrixReceiver.exe” target=”_blank”>Download Receiver for Windows</a>


The target=”_blank” will open it in a new window or tab.

And then remember to copy the desired Receiver version to your clients folder and backup your new Webinterface.conf file.

Now we have the download link in the button of the screen.
