Citrix SSL Relay Configuration / APPCRASH sslrelayconfig.exe

In some environments, the Citrix SSL Relay Configuration will crash with the following message at startup:


After a little, research I found a Citrix support article that describes my problem:

http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX112483

But from my opinion this is not a Resolution of the real problem – this seems more likely a workaround to me. So I did some further inspections what the root cause of this APPCRASH could be. The Citrix article stated something about a missing friendly name – and viola one of my installed computer certificates had no friendly name.

This is really easy to change and therefore I just entered a friendly name to the certificate within its properties:

Unfortunately, the same error is still present – APPCRASH in sslrelay.exe. So I needed to dive a little deeper. After some further investigations, I realized that the missing Subject causes also problem:

Because all Certificates were issued by our corporate public key infrastructure so we just modified the corresponding template with the following settings on our CA server:

And finally Citrix SSL-Relay Configuration is starting without an error!
