What version of Citrix Receiver should be installed on a Surface Pro?

Surface Pro 128 - I need a Citrix Receiver for business use to reach a virtual desktop.'

Should I look at the Citrix Downloads for Windows Mobile. Windows 7 or Windows 8?

I do not believe that shopping in the Store is the appropriate answer when the job requires me to go to Citrix to get an install.


Thank you,


John S.
