VDA Redirector melding Citrix IE

Problem:

I noticed in some environments that after installing XA650W2K8R2X64025 and HDXFlash200WX64001 for XenApp 6.5 The users are getting an popup in Internet Explorer about the VDAredirector.exe opening outside IE protected mode:

Citrix FTA, URL VDA Redirector - Security Warning

This program will open outside of Protected mode. Internet Explorer’s Protected mode helps protect your computer. If you do not trust this website, do not open this program.

Name: Citrix FTA, URL VDA Redirector Publisher: Citrix Systems, INC

Solution:

After selecting “Do not show me the warning for this program again” and clicking on “Allow” i searched the registry and found the following key :

[HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Low Rights\ElevationPolicy\{BFFC40A2-FFE2-4E6F-B179-3641561D4FCD}] “AppName”=”VDARedirector.exe” “AppPath”=”C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Citrix\\system32″ “Policy”=dword:00000003

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Low Rights\ElevationPolicy\{5C1359F1-E04E-4231-9E7E-955DE92A17E1}] “AppName”=”redirector.exe” “AppPath”=”C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Citrix\\ICA Client” “Policy”=dword:00000003

Import these settings using Group Policy or using a Workspace management solution like RES or AppSense.
