I feel I have a very unique situation with MacBook Air 11' laptops.

I publish a XenApp 7.8 desktop to my users. Citrix Receiver 4.4 is installed on the published desktop with SSON on to take care of automatically creating desktop shortcuts for seamless and local applications. If a user attempts to open a seamless application through Receiver or Receiver for Web, the user receives an error message stating that Citrix Receiver HDX Engine has stopped working.

Faulting application name: WFICA32.EXE, version:, time stamp: 0x566a3568
Faulting module name: vd3dn.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x566a30b7
Fault offset: 0x00001021
Faulting application start time: 0x01d1d94f13df07ae
Faulting application path: C:PROGRA~2CITRIXICACLI~1WFICA32.EXE
Faulting module path: C:PROGRA~2CITRIXICACLI~1vd3dn.dll
Faulting package full name:

Other Mac laptops, Windows desktops and laptops, and Wyse thin clients are unaffected and don't receive this message.

If I use Smooth Roaming to move an established published desktop connection with the seamless app open from a working computer to a MacBook Air 11', the seamless app immediately 'crashes' and the error message is displayed.

This very specific issue started to occur immediately after upgrading the Citrix VDA from 7.7 to 7.8 on the seamless application server. Newer Receiver and VDA versions do not fix the issue. The only way to make it work again is to revert the VDA back to 7.7 on the server hosting the seamless apps.

Problem Cause

Because the Mac devices does not have a registry like Windows devices, a license must be issued to the client devices name. If the device does not have a name, it cannot be issued a license. It attempts to assign a license to a null value, and the session drops.
