Lync 2013 VDI Alt Tab Issue

Posted by Teruin laurent sur décembre 4, 2013


If you use Citrix VDI with Xendesktop version 7.0 you probably discover that the Alt-tab combination do not work correctly.

The behavior is when you use the Alt tab combination key when your VM is full screen displayed. The Combination is interpreted locally by the Windows Embedded client despite the Virtual machine operating system

The alt tab combination works when your VM is displayed not in full screen because you need to click in the VM windows to select it.
To resolve this issue you have to modify this registry key

Value Before

HKLM\Software\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Modules\DVCAdapter
Key name: DvcPlugins
Value: CitrixDVCPlug-in, PNPRedirection

Value after, who solve the issue

HKLM\Software\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Modules\DVCAdapter
Key name: DvcPlugins
Value: PNPRedirection

We are still investigating the side effects regarding this update but the AltTab issue is resolved 😉
