Citrix Protocol Transition Service won’t start after Storefront Upgrade

After recently upgrading Citrix Storefront from Version 3.2 to 3.16 , after a reboot the Citrix Protocol Transition Service won’t start the event log showed the below error

The fix is to open Notepad add Administrator , then Navigate to

C:\Program Files\Citrix\Receiver StoreFront\Services\ProtocolTransitionService

Open Citrix.DeliveryServices.ProtocolTransition.ServiceHost.exe.config

Change the following line

<section name=”container” type=”Castle.Windsor.Configuration.AppDomain.CastleSectionHandler, Castle.Windsor,

Version=3.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=407dd0808d44fbdc” />

to the right version

e.g

<section name=”container” type=”Castle.Windsor.Configuration.AppDomain.CastleSectionHandler, Castle.Windsor,

Version=3.16.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=407dd0808d44fbdc” />

The service should start after this OK!
