Download ICA client

Hi Experts,

I am running a test Citrix 4.5 Enterprise farm and had a couple of basic questions;

i) When I log onto the Web Interface, some clients don't have an ICA client installed and are therefore prompted to install one. But there is also a launch.ica that comes up which you have to either Save or Cancel. Should I be saving this, and to where? And what does this do? I assume this isn't the actual ICA client?

ii) Also, on the Web interface, it will tell me that I can install an ICA client from the WI server. Where on the server is this? And I can I update this? It is currently 10.100

iii) We run both 32 and 64 bit client OS's (Windows). Can the ICA client be run on both platforms? If not - how can I place a 64bit client onto the WI so users can download this as well?

iv) I assume local admin rights are not needed to install these clients? So far, on the testing machines, I've had local admin rights on all.

Hope someone can help!

i) that would happen if the user clicked on one of the Citrix applications without having the ICA client loaded. Once the client is loaded, they won't see that open/save popup any more
ii) the msi is located at  \Program Files\Citrix\Web Interface\4.5\Clients\ica32\. Follow these directions to update it:
iii) not sure about the 64 bit client - i'll look into it
iv) there is no need to have the user be a local admin
