Login VSI Version: 4..1.5.115 Pro
Test system: Citrix XenDesktop, Storefront v3.1, No Netscaler
Operating system version target: Windows 7 SP1
Operating system version launcher(s): Windows 7 SP1
Office version target: Office 2013

values in <xxx> are values that have been removed for security.

the command line in the console is <VSIShare>\_VSI_Binaries\Connectors\SFConnect.exe /url https://<Storefront FQDN>/Citrix/MyCloudDev/ /user <user name> /password <password> /domain <domain> /protocol ExplicitForms /resource "Win7XDPOCGPU"
I get the following:

I also manually run the command line on the launcher from a normal windows command prompt and get the same errors.

I was have a problem with authentication but resolved this by using the /domain parameter. So i know i am authenticating.
Previous issue link

I am able to launch a desktop using the Citrix Reciever from the Launcher machine with the same creds.

Any help is appreciated.

Hello Tim,

Can you try removing the trailing slash from the storefront URL? Use
https://<Storefront FQDN>/Citrix/MyCloudDev
instead of
https://<Storefront FQDN>/Citrix/MyCloudDev/
