How do I successfully complete a custom install of the Citrix ICA Client?

I just installed the Citrix Web Interface (ver 4.5) on a newly built Windows 2003 Server R2 SP2. The web interface works fine. I am trying to pre-package the Citrix ICA Client with the following command: msiexec.exe /a (my path to downloaded ica32pkg.msi) (see

The install comes up, I set all the desired components (web only), and then the install fails with:

I am not sure if the error is related to the Windows Installer or the Citrix Client. Does Anyone know how I could troubleshoot or perform the install successfully?

Thanks in advance,

Put the original ica32pkg.msi file into a short path without spaces like C:\temp\original, create the custom installation in a similar path, like C:\temp\custom.
You can then copy the custom msi package to wherever you like it, but the initial creation doesn't handle spaces in the path very well ...

That was it... Who knew that the Citrix instructions would lead me down the incorrect path.
