Citrix Presentation Server Client

What is Citrix Presentation Server Client?

Citrix Presentation Server Client is a thin client product that allows users to connect to their corporate applications. It can host applications on central servers and allow users to interact with them remotely or stream and deliver them to user devices for local execution. In Citrix the core application hosting technology utilizes Citrix Systems' proprietary presentation layer protocol or thin client protocol called Independent Computing Architecture (ICA).


The most common release is 10.00.52110, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named cpviewer.exe. The setup package generally installs about 122 files and is usually about 14.43 MB (15,133,664 bytes).
