Run custom VB Application (.exe)  over a web browser

How to run a custom VB application (.exe) over a web browser.  For example, a product like Microsoft TSWeb Client.  I don't want to use Microsoft's TS Web Client, I need strong print mapping abilities.  I tried to use Citirx Presentation Server, but it requires the client to download the streaming client.  Plus it doesn't keep the app within the browser, it makes it look like the APP is installed locally - seemless.  

I would need a solution that will put my .exe on a web browser, keep it on there, and be able to print.  Is my only solution Microsoft TSWeb Client? Is there maybe another product that Citrix has that would help.  I remember long ago, Citrix had a similar product like TS Web Client, I just can't seem to remember the name.

    The Streaming Client for Citrix is a new feature... but the standard Win32 bit client for Presentation server is still available.  

    Do you not want the client to have to install anything?  If so you can use the Java client (of course assumes the client has java installed).  Or if all of your clients will be running windows you can use the Native client.  This is just an active x prompt.

    Yes, all our users will be using windows; 100% sure Internet Explorer.  How can I make Citrix work using Active x or Java? Will that map the printer and drives?  This weekend I played with MS TSWEB, and I found ways to make this work, the only thing I found it doesn't do via the browser is map the drive.  Printers it did perfectly fine...
