Windows 7: Scheduled Tasks on Unlock: Start Citrix-Receiver fails

Scheduled Tasks on Unlock: Start Citrix-Receiver fails

Hello there

1 have 2 scheduled tasks on my WES7 Thin Clients:

1) On Lock: Execute the following batch:
TASKKILL /F /IM "pnamain.exe"
TASKKILL /F /IM "Receiver.exe
This kills the open Citrix session and shuts down all citrix programs.

2) On Unlock: Reconnect the Citrix Session and open all programs via this batch:

start "" "C:\Program Files\Citrix\ICA Client\pnamain.exe" /connect
start "" "C:\Program Files\Citrix\ICA Client\Receiver\Receiver.exe"
If i execute the 2 batch-files manually, everything works perfect. If they are run via the scheduled tasks, the locking works perfectly, but the unlocking behaves as following:

  • pnamain.exe is started
  • Receiver.exe is NOT started
  • EDIT: The task is marked as 'finished without problems'
I tried to execute this task with different settings... same problem all the time The Task is executed with the Admin-Account, so this should not be the problem.

Who might have a helping idea?

Thanks a lot and cheers from Switzerland,

Hi and welcome to Seven Forums!

You could ask Citrix support, maybe Receiver can't be run from Scheduled Tasks.
