    Upgrading from Unsupported Version

    Citrix Workspace will automatically uninstall your old version and delete all your settings, which you can restore later. Otherwise you will have to delete everything manually. Click OK to continue.
  • Starting an application using a shortcut might fail if you have upgraded from Citrix Receiver for Windows to Citrix Workspace app 1912 LTSR for Windows. The following error message might appear:
    Your apps are not available at this time. Please try again in a few minutes or contact your help desk with this information: cannot contact store.


  • The Print Screen key might not capture screenshots when Citrix Workspace app for Windows with App Protection enabled starts in the background. [RFWIN-25835]
  • Starting a published application through a PNAgent site on StoreFront using Citrix Workspace app for Windows might fail with the following error message:

    Cannot start app. Please contact your help desk.
  • Launching sessions from Delivery Groups with an access policy rule specifying the client IP address might fail if the client has multiple NICs.
    Rule: Set-BrokerAccessPolicyRule -Name <rulename> -includedClientIPs <Client ip address>
