The newest Citrix Receiver for Windows 3.0 (188.8.131.5285) requires almost 150% more memory per user than Citrix ICA Client 11.2. So when optimizing you Citrix servers for the highest user density you should consider if you even need some of these new features if any.
Normally the Citrix client is installed on XenApp servers only to allow for ICA in ICA to internal back-end or Cloud hosted applications.

There’s currently also a bug with Citrix Receiver for Windows 3.0 and the Shadow Taskbar. This applies to both XenApp 5 and 6. The workaround for XenApp 6 is to copy the wshadow.exe from the XenApp 6.5 media, but on XenApp 5 there’s currently no hotfix available.
So keep safe and stick to the working Citrix ICA Client 11.2 and save some memory at the same time.
If your users are constantly getting a MSI repair when they visit a Citrix Web Interface site this is most due to the missing ConnectionCenter entry in Registry. Simply push this registry value through Microsoft Group Policy Preferences.

While you’re at it, make sure you delete any references in Run to Acrobat Assistant 8.0, Adobe Acrobat Speed Lanucher, Adobe ARM, BCSSync and so on. These will only steal unnessecarry memory from your system.
