Active X for Citrix 4.5

I am currently using java for my web based applications on Citrix.  I would like to use active x instead of java.  Does anyone know how i would go about doing this?

You can usually select the client type from the Web Interface.  You go into settings (to the right of Applications) and find the client selection type.  Not all systems are set up for this so let me know if you can't find the option.

The options should look like this btw:
Local Client (uses the installed PN client)
Embedded (uses the ActiveX client)

I do not have the option for settings on the web interface.  Is there something i can do on the server side that makes everything use active x instead of java?

Nothing that I know of since it is an option on their end.

I am on the server side setting it up for others.  I have gotten the active x to work.  But it only works for users who have the citrix client installed on their PC.  Anyone know of how I can make it work for everyone even if they don't have the Citrix client?

You can use the Client Deployment feature to do that but it will still reqiure some intervention on the behalf of the end user; it can't be easier though.  All they need to do is accept an ActiveX popup under the menu bar.  The newer WI sites do this whole Client Detection bit which redirects the user to a dedicated screen for the sole purpose of client detection and deployment.  
You want to configure your client deployment so that only the embedded client is an option (since you don't want java or the local client).  Personally, I like to enable the Active X embedded client and the local client.  I don't like my sessions embedded in a window.
