After updating a Windows XP SP3 machine to Citrix Receiver v3.3, the user is unable to launch any published applications. The error they got is:

No value could be found for (Allowhotkey) that satisfies all lockdown requirements.

I struggled with this for quite a while, and I eventually found a solution which involves disabling Citrix Lockdown. I found several link-bait-sites, which were of no use, and a few posts recommending a uninstall and re-install, which did not help.

Eventually after a lot of searching and finding garbage, I found this post on the Citrix Forums by Simon Burbery. In it, he recommends changing all of the EnableLockdown values from 1 to 0.

  1. Export HKLM\Software\Citrix to a reg file
  2. Find any EnableLockdown values (there are a few) and change from 1 to 0
  3. Import the modified reg file
  4. Exit Receiver completely
  5. Launch Published App

I found about three of these values. I simply did a CTRL + F in regedit and changed the ones I found and restarted the receiver. I have yet to discover and side effects of this method yet.
