This 4.53 MB download lets you access your Windows VDI session from your Surface, tablet or slate device or computer running Windows 8 or Windows RT.

This potentially enables new scenarios for IT to support BYOD scenarios in today’s world where the line between work and home devices begin to blur. Users can work on any Windows device they choose, regardless of whether it runs Windows 8 or Windows RT and still be able to connect securely to their corporate managed Windows desktop session, which is governed by their organization’s IT policies. On the device itself, they can install and run their favorite apps, and store personal pictures, media and files.

The Citrix receiver is also available for non-Microsoft platforms, enabling access to Windows desktops from heterogeneous platforms such as IOS, Android, etc.

Also noteworthy is the fact that the Remote Desktop client from Microsoft is also available with Windows 8 and Windows RT, allowing you to connect similarly to desktop sessions without Citrix.

    Unfortunately Citrix Receiver (v1.0.0.60 RT) for Windows 8 RT, that is available now in the Microsoft Store, doesn’t actually work.

    Even the most recent iteration of Citrix receiver definitely does not work with Windows RT—very disappointing from 2 systems I have worked with for years.
