How to allow Citrix Workspace Receiver ICA launch from Kiosk Mode

Occasional Contributor

Intune Windows 10 Multi App Kiosk mode does not allow to execute ICA file downloaded to access Citrix Apps.  ICA files are  not visible in the downloads folder, files are blocked as per the screenshot ! Citrix Workspace, Explorer, Chrome, Edge browsers are allowed in policy. Any suggestions to enable Citrix access from Kiosk ? Seems like a bug in Intune !

@pratikdave did you get this resolved? I am working on the same thing now

Can confirm we have the same issue. Not using the Kiosk works when logged in as a global Azure admin, but won't work when using a regular user account. Seems to be rights-related. It's not .ica that won't download, it's any file really. I tested with .docx and .xlsx but it 'Couldn't download' either. A .txt file will, though...

Good Day. We have the same issue, we are trying to allow Citrix to run when Kiosk Mode is applied to a workstation.
Has a Solution been found as we have logged calls with MS and they cant advise.

Hi we have this working now.


Let me know and I will help you. I actually have both versions working now Workspace App and via web ICA. 


rs6 rule now allows no restriction for the file explorer 


there is also a reg setting you can set on the client for the downloads folder





@p4ntb0y Sounds good, i'm not sure if we can use rs6 options as we do not fully confire these clients with application packages etc. I'm still curious how this played out for you, your help is welcome for sure.



rs6 rule? Sorry i didnt get it, would you please share the fix ? Thanks heaps in advance.



We neither understand what is "rs6" rule, please keep us posted if you find anything. Experiencing exactly the same issue.
