Citrix XenApp Web Plugin

What is Citrix XenApp Web Plugin?

Use the "Online plug-in – web" to access hosted applications and desktops using Windows Internet Explorer or Firefox browsers. The Citrix XenApp Web Plugin allows users of any Windows operating system to connect to Virtual Desktop applications. It is designed to work with the Virtual Desktop Web Interface, which allows you to launch applications and define settings. Using this arrangement is the easiest way to connect to Virtual Desktop applications since all of your application icons are automatically generated and all of your printers and drives are automatically mapped to the Virtual Desktop session. When you browse to the Virtual Desktop Web Interface on a Windows PC, it will automatically detect whether you have the XenApp Web Plugin installed. If it does not detect that the web plugin is present, it will provide a link where it may be downloaded. This article outlines the steps involved in browsing to the Virtual Desktop Web Interface and installing the XenApp Web Plugin.


The most common release is, 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. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. 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 setup package generally installs about 7 files and is usually about 5.92 MB (6,210,048 bytes).
