Citrix Receiver spawning multiple SelfServicePlugin.exe processes

Re: Citrix Receiver 3.1 spawning multiple SelfService.exe processes

Update 7/12/2013: I am told that this issues has been fixed with the latest release of the receiver, Version 4.  It was released June 26, 2013

Current Info:
Download and install version 4.0 of the receiver. 
http://www.citrix.com/downloads/citrix-receiver.html

Previous Info:
Fix 1)
Download the Citrix Receiver and install it with the following command line:
CitrixReceiver.exe ADDLOCAL=ReceiverInside,ICA_Client,USB,DesktopViewer,Flash,Vd3d /silent

This will install everything BUT selfservice.exe

Fix 2)
Or if the installation file is called CitrixReceiverWeb.exe, enter the following command line:
CitrixReceiverWeb.exe ADDLOCAL=ReceiverInside,ICA_Client,USB,DesktopViewer,Flash

Hi Pat,

That stopped the multiple spawns however it also stopped me being able to start the Citrix receiver.

The spawns appear to stop once you have configured an account on the receiver, i.e. connected to a host.

Check out http://www.citrixforum.com/forums/discussion/10/citrix-receiver-on-windows-7-proliferating-selfserviceplugin/p1

In summary it is a Citrix issue and workaround is to rename SelfServicePlugin.exe.
