How to run the Citrix ICA client from a USB disk

How to run the Citrix ICA client from a USB disk

The Citrix ICA client can be migrated to a removable disk, so you can connect to Citrix servers without having to install a client locally. This can be paired with Dekart Logon for Citrix, which can also run from removable media. As a result, a bundle is obtained, offering you a secure way to connect to remote servers.

How does it work?

  1. Uninstall the Citrix ICA client from your system
  2. Install Citrix Program Neighborhood by running ica32.exe
  3. Edit C:\Program Files\Citrix\ICA Client\WFCLIENT.INI, by adding


  4. Save the file
  5. Run Citrix ICA Client, then close it (do nothing else).
  6. Verify the contents of C:\Program Files\Citrix\ICA Client\, a new folder should be there - INIFiles; it should contain the following files:
    • Appsrv.ini
    • Wfclient.ini
  7. Copy the Citrix folder (and its subdirectories) to the removable drive
  8. Install Dekart Logon for Citrix ICA Client (advanced mode) to the flash disk
  9. Uninstall Citrix ICA Client from the computer
  10. Run Dekart Logon for Citrix ICA Client from the flash disk (try creating a new connection in the KSD manager, to confirm that everything works as expected)

Can I use this client to connect via Citrix Secure Gateway?

Alex RaileanRennel, from the program's perspective the only thing that matters is that the server to which you connect is connected to using the Citrix ICA client. The client itself handles the rest.
