ICA File Structure

Citrix ICA client files are text files that contain configuration information for the applications accessed through the Citrix client.

Tip: When you load an ICA file using the Recording Options, VuGen saves the file together with your script, eliminating the need to copy the ICA file to each load generator machine.

ICA Files must have an .ica extension and must conform to the following format:

[WFClient]
Version=
TcpBrowserAddress=
 
[ApplicationServers]
AppName1=
 
[AppName1]
Address=
InitialProgram=#
ClientAudio=
AudioBandwidthLimit=
Compress=
DesiredHRES=
DesiredVRES=
DesiredColor=
TransportDriver=
WinStationDriver=
Username=
Domain=
ClearPassword=

The following example shows a sample ICA file for using Microsoft Word on a remote machine through the Citrix client:

[WFClient]
Version=2
TcpBrowserAddress=235.119.93.56
 
[ApplicationServers]
Word=
 
[Word]
Address=Word
InitialProgram=#Word
ClientAudio=On
AudioBandwidthLimit=2
Compress=On
DesiredHRES=800
DesiredVRES=600
DesiredColor=2
TransportDriver=TCP/IP
WinStationDriver=ICA 3.0
