Run and .exe on a pen drive from citrix

Hi Guys,

 I have encrypted a USb pen drive using Pointsec Protector. This installs an .exe onto the pen drive that the user will then run and insert a password etc. In our citrix enviroment we allow users to map network drives etc. I can see the drive and the .exe from Citrix, but it will not allow me to run the .exe and thus unlocking the pen drive. The following error comes up :

Windows cannot acces the the specified device,path or file. You may not have the approirate permissions  to access the item

I have tried Run as and this comes up with :

The SPecifed path does not exist
Check the path and then try again

The pen drive and the .exe works FINE outside of citrix.

Anyone got any ideas please ?

Thank you in advance

assuming it is a permission problem..log on to citrix as an administrator, then try it..rather than just 'run as' from a standard user

do you have a policy on citrix blocking users running .exe's?

Has anyone successfully implemented Checkpoint media encryption on XenApp 6 servers streamed via PVS?
