Citrix Receiver for Windows 4.0.1 – Goodbye unnecessary logon prompts!

For those of you out there who are delivering XenApp/XenDesktop through StoreFront, you should definitely make sure to update your Receiver for Windows 4 clients to the latest 4.0.1 hotfix. While this update only contains one fix, it solves a very visible, miserable, and annoying problem.

If you’ve ever connected to a StoreFront Store via Receiver 4.0 through a remote site, you’ve probably seen this window pop up every 10 minutes or so:


Receiver 4.0.1 addresses this very annoying behavior by only prompting for credentials after the expiration timeout period if and when a resource is launched through Receiver.

I’m sure many of you already knew about this fix, but I thought I’d help to spread the word in hopes of sparing others from this frustration on Receiver 4.0 RTM.
