I need a VB Script to do the below:

Write the following to the file name appsrv.ini within the below directory:

Compress=Off

EncryptionLevelSession=EncRC5-0

C:\Program Files\Citrix\ICA Client\

I would like for it to add those entries to the ini during a startup script I will create.

It also needs to create the following registry entry:

HKLM\Software\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Canonicalization\TCP/IP

Add new REG_SZ

String Value  Name:Compress

Data:Compress

Try this...
Const iniName = "appsrv.ini"
Const iniLocation = "C:\Program Files\Citrix\ICA Client\"
Const ForAppending = 8   
Const HKLM = &H80000002
 
'Create/update file
Dim objFSO : Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim objFile
If Not objFSO.FolderExists(iniLocation) Then wscript.quit
If objFSO.FileExists (iniLocation & iniName) Then
  Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(iniLocation & iniName, ForAppending)
Else
  Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(iniLocation & iniName)
End If
 
objFile.WriteLine "Compress=Off"
objFile.WriteLine "EncryptionLevelSession=EncRC5-0"
objFile.Close
Set objFile = Nothing
 
'Create registry entry
Dim oReg : Set oReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\.\root\default:StdRegProv")
strKeyPath = "Software\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Canonicalization\TCP/IP"
strValueName = "Compress"
strValue = "Compress"
oReg.SetStringValue HKLM,strKeyPath,strValueName,strValue
 
Set oReg = Nothing

Can you configure it to resume on error and then exit without output to the client computer?

What happens if it does not see that directory or has an issue reading the registry?

If the folder doesn't exist, it quits:

If Not objFSO.FolderExists(iniLocation) Then wscript.quit

The following will continue on registry update error...
Const iniName = "appsrv.ini"
Const iniLocation = "C:\Program Files\Citrix\ICA Client\"
Const ForAppending = 8   
Const HKLM = &H80000002
 
'Create/update file
Dim objFSO : Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim objFile
If Not objFSO.FolderExists(iniLocation) Then wscript.quit
If objFSO.FileExists (iniLocation & iniName) Then
  Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(iniLocation & iniName, ForAppending)
Else
  Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(iniLocation & iniName)
End If
 
objFile.WriteLine "Compress=Off"
objFile.WriteLine "EncryptionLevelSession=EncRC5-0"
objFile.Close
Set objFile = Nothing
 
'Create registry entry
On Error Resume Next
Dim oReg : Set oReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\.\root\default:StdRegProv")
strKeyPath = "Software\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Canonicalization\TCP/IP"
strValueName = "Compress"
strValue = "Compress"
oReg.SetStringValue HKLM,strKeyPath,strValueName,strValue
 
Set oReg = Nothing
