I have just upgraded Citrix Receiver from version 3.0 to 3.1 and I found it only allows connections to HTTPS addresses, currently I am working on test servers so adding a certificate seemed a bit over the top.

The account URL must use the https:// prefix. This prefix assures a secure connection


There does not seem to be a way to allow HTTP in the GUI or the ADM but it can be done in the registry.

  • Open Regedit
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\Dazzle on a 32-bit machine or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\Dazzle on a 64-bit machine
  • Under Dazzle modify the data of AllowAddStore to be A


  • Exit Citrix Receiver and restart it.
