Microsoft OneDrive (Open in App)

We are experiencing issues with the new feature "open in app" in OneDrive / SharePoint.
Microsoft 365 Roadmap | Microsoft 365
Open a OneDrive or SharePoint file in the desktop app instead of the browser - Microsoft Support
While I can use this function without any problem on my pc, it doesnt work on a Citrix Desktop instance.
This doesn´t mean it doesn´t work at all in Citrix, because we have users where it´s working fine.

The problem happens when trying to save a file back to SharePoint. Normally it´s just saved back to the original file location (via OneDrive Sync Client) when you click save. But in this case a save under popup opens in Acrobat reader.
Acrobat reader is set as default app in Windows and it opening the file in desktop app from a SharePoint Online browser window works. But saving back fails.


Any help on this?
