How to Connect to the Citrix Application Server

The first time you use a given computer to work with the Citrix Application Server, you may need to install a bit of software. If the computer you’re using is a CBE-provided lab/studio/library loaner machine, you can skip to step 6.

  1. Open a browser and go to .
  2. If you are on a CBE-provided lab/studio/library loaner machine, you may skip to logging in (step 6).
  3. If you are on a non-CBE computer, you will need to install the Citrix Receiver.  Click the “Detect Receiver” button. Then check the box “I agree…”, and click “Download”. Launch the downloaded installer and follow the instructions. When the installation is complete, click the “Finished” button in the Citrix Receiver installer window.
  4. Restart your computer.
  5. Open a browser and go to  If the Install message appears again, click “Already Installed”.
  6. Log in using your UW NetID and password.
  7. Note:  Sometimes Citrix gets confused about whether its receiver has been installed.  If you have already installed the Citrix Receiver, click “Already Installed” to bypass the initial window.
  8. If you are using Chrome, you may notice that a Citrix application doesn’t launch, and instead downloads an “ica” file.  Simply right-click the file at the bottom of the browser window and choose “Always open this type of file”.  Relaunch the Citrix application and it should open directly from then on.
  9. For more detailed instructions, see CBE-citrix-instructions .
