Citrix Published application needs access to the server C Drive


One of my Published applications relies on a third party component which is installed to c:\program files\common files, however the application and users dont have access to the C: drive.

How can allow access to parts of the citrix servers C: drive.

Many thanks.

Assuming you use Active Directory, just create an AD group with the users of that Published App, and then add that AD group to the ACL of the necessary folders on the C drive and give them whatever level of rights it needs.
Also, most people hide the C drive on Citrix boxes, but that does not prevent access, which is controlled by the ACLs.


Hermannator: Ok I have checked permissions and all set correctly still doesnt load the data into the component...
