    I have Googled, googled and googled even more and lots of threads on different sites on this subject, but unable to figure out a final outcome.
    Some one, please help, this is driving me nuts.
    I cannot get Citrix Receiver to work on my Asus Eee Pad Transformer running Android version 3.2.1 (it does work on my Windows PC and on my IPad).

    the set up:
    - I downloaded and installed the security certificate from my supplier. This is done through security settings, install certificates from storage and the device confirms the correct installation of the certificate.

    - I configured the Citrix receiver app with all the correct settings like server, username, password and domain.

    - I can open a session and I do see the same available apps as when connecting through Windows or iPad. However, when clicking on an application to open it (remote desktop in my case) I get an error message "invalid server certificate". I can choose to ignore this and connect anyway. It wil than try to connect but doesnt go passed the "please wait" screen and the little round cursor keeps turning eternally.

    - Than I tried by changing my account in the citrix app to be "Web Interface", because this is how I connect when using Windows. Via https://citrix.-supplier-.com. Same result. I can get in, see my apps, but when opening 'invalid server certificate' and nothing happens

    - After consulting many forums and sites I tried web access (just like on PC) through Firefox. After going to https://citrix.-supplier-.com the devices automatically opens up the citrix app and dowloads a file called 'launch.ica'. On PC it does this as well and I click on 'open' to start working, however Android does not seem to recognize this 'launc.ica' file and I cannot open it. The device goes back from Citrix app to Firefox with a blank screen.

    This bothers me a lot. I love this device, but the main reason I bought it was to use Citrix receiver to access my remote desktop. Stupidly I did not check thoroughly enough, I just assumed that since the Citrix app existed for Android and it works on iPad it would just work....

    How do I get this to work?!?

    Our company is just now beta testing a virtual environment. Using this tool I get the same exact issues on the TF101. I am hoping that it will be resolved with ICS update. I believe it is still on track for some time in the middle of Feb. I hope......

    Has this been resolved? I have been in the market for a new Tablet and the exact issue persists as described at the beginning. Can log in using a SmartCard (one time pin), can See virtual Desktop instance, can see XenApps. but the desktop starts to launch, then just bombs out back to the App list.

    I can work on a WIndows 7 machine, an iPad, my Galaxy S2 (Android 4.0.x). But it fails on: Nexus 7, Asus Transformer Infinity, Galaxy Tab 10.1...all Android 4.1.x.

    Any advice anywhere?
