Citrix Metaframe XP - Shadowing not available from CMC

If you are running Citrix Metaframe XP and, when you right click on a user to shadow them, the shadow option is greyed out it’s possible the CMC isn’t able to find a local ICA client.

Check to see if the following registry key exists, this is the key the CMC checks to verify the existence of a local ICA client.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\WinFrameICA\shell\open\command "

I looked and no I didn't so

If this key does not exist then try reinstalling the ICA client from your installation media.

My name is Mitch Beaumont and I've been a technology professional since 1999.

I then joined IBM Global Services where I began specialising in customer projects which were based on and around Citrix technologies. Following a couple of very enjoyable years with IBM I relocated to London to work as a system operations engineer for a large law firm where I responsible for the day to day operations and development of the firms global Citrix infrastructure.
