Please assist me with removing the prompt (for users in Citrix Sessions) in the attachment.  This occurs for users when clicking a pdf attachment in an application.  The process, in turn, attempts to display the pdf in an Explorer window but first will prompt the user to respond to the dialog box seen in the attachment
.  THis is happening on the farm..all servers in the farm have the same version of adobe and file associations with adobe for pdf documents  It appears the default function as administrator is to OPEN the file.  With the client, even when attempting to use runas, the folder options have limited/no accessibility.  I have attahced views of what im seeing with the client side

You need to either install a PDF reader (I prefer Foxit Reader over Adobe, but that's all just personal preference) or tell the Citrix server to do local redirection of PDF files to your local desktop software, not allowing PDF files to open in their Citrix session at all.

First it doesn't appear that Adobe is associated with PDF correctly from the ICON displayed in the properties above and the download.  Do you just want it to open or do you want it to open with IE? Have you tried configuring via Edit-Preferences in Adobe?

Is uninstalling/reinstalling Adobe an option?

Is IE enhanced security installed on the server still? It's in windows components in add/remove programs.

No, IE enhanced security is not installed on any servers.  Anyone else have any suggestions?

Make sure that not only Citrix understands that Adobe is the default reader, but that Windows understands that Adobe is the default reader as well. There's a setting being missed somewhere if it's not opening up properly.

We ran into a similar issue and the issue turned out to be the "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" setting for IE, which had been enabled in GPO.
