Citrix and IE Plug-ins

I am running a small citrix farm consisting of 9 xenapp 5 servers. They are pretty much identical across the farm.


1. Login to domain terminal
2. Open citrix web console and login
3. Launch application
4. Once the application is selected from the Citrix Intranet WebPage it launches IE on one of the Citrix servers in the farm, which creates a session for the actual aplication.


Each time IE is launched on the citrix server from a domain authenticated user on a terminal it installs the adobe plugin. This happens every time IE is launched and it happens on every server. No matter how many times they launch IE it goes through the quick plugin install for adobe. It is almost as if it cannot write to Application Data on the Citrix server, but each user is a Power User of the Citrix Server. Any reason it would continue to try and install the adobe plug-in. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried installing the Adobe Plugin in install mode for your users?

Open a command prompt
change user /install
Now launch IE, let it do the install of the Adobe Client - or manually reinstall Adobe Reader in this mode to force the IE plug-in to reinstall.
change user /execute
Test with your user account to see if it is not installed for a normal user.

This worked great! I rolled out all these servers at once, so I guess i'm bound to miss one thing.
