How do I setup our client PC's to connect the Citrix farm desktop at startup

Last Modified: 2012-06-21

We've recently installed a Citrix Presnetation Server 5.0 farm (XenApp).  We have program neighborhood running well with shortcuts appearing in the start menu etc.

However, we have some applications which can only be used from the server desktop as they plug into other apps.  To get round this, we'd like to setup the PC's to automatically launch the desktop from the Citrix farm at login.  The only problem is we have no idea if this is possible or how to do it.

I've search Expert-Exchange and the internet but cannot find anything specific, only mention of setting up hot desks which I'm not sure will give us the desired solution.

If anyone can offer a solution, we'd really appreciate it.
