Need to publish application from another server

We have an application on our application server. I need to publish this application on our CITRIX server so when a client opens an ICA session they will be able to access the application. How can i do this without installing this application on the CITRIX server and then publishing it? Can i do this with map drive on the CITRIX and then publishing it?

Yes, you can map the network drive and then publish it, then it's also important that the user also have mapped the same drive that you use. Else you can also publish to an UNC path, then you also hav to check that users have trusted that fileserver so run message wont appear.

5.Choose Application and type the UNC path in Command Line, in working direktory choose folder where application lays. Like this
Command: \\filserver1\application\app.exe   and Working Directory \\filserver1\application
6.Choose Icon that will fit to the application. It will recommend you the defailt icon.

It the application not have to be installed then yes. For an example you can run firefox remotly from another computer without installing on the Citrix server. Very many old programs wil work this way.
