Citrix Receiver is the client component for XenDesktop and XenApp. Full access to complete workstations via XenDesktop is only granted to devices on which the Citrix receiver is installed. Citrix is an application that allows the virtualization of servers, workstations and applications. Recently, however, many reports have been received that prevent users from opening online applications through the web portal.

You get this error when you try to launch vDesktop or Cloud applications: the feature you want to use is on a network resource that is not available. Click OK to try again, or type another path to a folder with the’ICAWebWrapper.msi’ installation package in the field below.

The problem is that the online plug-in cannot be installed because ICAWebWrapper.msi is missing.

So where can we find this MSI file?

It’s much easier than I expected.

Open a command prompt as an administrator and go to the folder where you saved CitrixReceiver.exe and type the following to extract all msi files to a folder named Extract.

For receiver 4.x and later versions:

CitrixReceiver.exe /extract[Destination_name_of_the_extract_folder, for example C:\temp]

After extracting the MSI files, you can then use Browse in the pop-up window and select the ICAWebWrapper.msi file. Click OK in the pop-up to install the plug-in online.
