Trouble configuring networked published application

I'm pretty new to Citrix and while I've been able to publish a bunch of programs there is one that's giving me a lot of problem.

The app is installed on a network server and all clients run a client install for access to the program. So I've ran the client install and setup the published application just like every other one I've done in the past and while the program starts fine on the citrix server it doesn't start through the web interface as a published application. I get my login script and it goes through the citrix negotiation but the program never starts.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Publish the program using the UNC path to the executable, and use %Systemroot%\system32 or whatever as working directory.
If you're using a mapped drive to start this, that drive has to be mapped in a logon script for the user logging on; mapped drives are user specific, it doesn't help if yiu've mapped this while testing it.

oBdA,

I've used UNC paths in both the path and working directory.

//dc01/app/csa/csa.exe - target
//dc01/app/csa - working directory

I've also tried using drive letters instead since when users login they get the usual drive mappings like they would when login in at their desktops in the office.

Just in case: you need backslashes, not forward slashes: \\dc01\app\csa\csa.exe
The working directory can *not* be a UNC path (should have said "use %Systemroot%\system32 or whatever other *local* folder you like", I guess).
The users have enough permissions to run this from the network location?

oBdA,

There shouldn't be an issue with UNC paths in the working directory.

Finally got word back from the software vender. Seems they had no information about it in their knowledgebase but I had to manually add an exclusion for the executables in the registry because my office uses multiple monitors.

Thanks for giving me some ideas though.
