The Citrix Receiver Clean-Up Utility has been my biggest friend for a while. It helps you to recover broken Citrix Receiver installations on Microsoft Windows. Before I knew it, I sometimes even reinstalled Windows to get Citrix Receiver back to work. Good old days.
But after many years a trustful friendship came to an end. Citrix included the functionality of the Receiver Clean-Up Utility into the Citrix Receiver Setup a while ago.
If you use a CitrixReceiver.exe Setup which is >4.4 then there is a new command line argument, which acts like Receiver Clean-Up Utility:
This is explained in detail in the Citrix eDocs:
Of course you can still use the
/silent switch together with
/rcu and don’t forget
/includeSSON if you want to use Single-Sign-On in your environment:
CitrixReceiver.exe /ruc /silent /includeSSON
The Citrix knowledge base article about Receiver Clean-Up Utility CTX137494 has been update accordingly and still holds the old documentation. But the recommend way, is to use the
/rcu switch from the Receiver Setup.
