Can't launch applications - SSL Error 61

Launching a HarborCloud application returns SSL Error 61

You try to launch an application in HarborCloud, but are unable to do so and receive the following error:

Cannot connect to the Citrix XenApp server. SSL Error 61: You have not chosen to trust "GoDaddy Root Certificate Authority - G2", the issuer of the server's security certificate.

You have already tried to reinstall the Citrix Receiver as well as restart your computer but to no avail. Other computers seem fine and only your computer seems to be affected.

SSL Error 61 is caused by a missing site certificate

The general idea is that the GoDaddy Root Certificate necessary to fully access our HarborCloud site is not installed on your computer. These kinds of certificates are typically pre-installed on most modern machines or added as part of regular Windows Updates; however, if your machine is behind on updates or has had its operating system reinstalled or otherwise atypically adjusted, then the certificate may not be installed.

To resolve this error, you will just need to install our site certificate manually on your local computer.
