Changing location of ICA client install path

We have just implemented a new citrix server.  On our old one if you did not have the ICA client you could click on a link that directed you to a location on the citrix server that installed the client. The link was http://citrix1/citrix/ICAWEB/en/ica32/ica32t.exe
On the new server it sends you to www.citrix.com/downloads.  I want to change this to point to the install file located at Http://citrix/citrix/metaframe/en/ica32/ica32t.exe

edit the WebInterface.conf file in this directory:

C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\MetaFrame\conf\


go to the end of the file and look for this:

# WelcomeMessage_<lang-code>=[Customized welcome message in the specified language]
Win16Client=Default
Win32Client=Default

change it to this:

# WelcomeMessage_<lang-code>=[Customized welcome message in the specified language]
Win16Client=Default
Win32Client=Click here for the Client&/Citrix/MetaFrame/ICAWEB/en/ica32/ica32t.exe


*notice the addition of the ICAWEB Directory.. this is generally where you put the client files.

this file has been modified to show webinterface.conf.default.  There was no webinterface.conf.  I modified the file and tried removing the .default and had no luck.  It still sent me to www.citrix.com/downloads

This is Presentation Server 4.0 if that makes a difference

ok ordinarily you will see both WebInterface.conf and WebInterface.conf.default in that directory, but the WebInterface.conf is the one you need.  Did you stop & start your website in IIS after making the change?  Also this link will probably only appear if you DON'T have the client installed (depending on how it is set up in the console).

Here's the documentation from citrix on that if restarting your website in IIS didn't fix the problem:

one other thing that I just thought of is that you may have a centralized config file stored in another location (on another citrix server).  If this is the case you would need to edit that "master" config file in order for changes to take place.
