Citrix / Xenapp client problem

I have two Citrix servers one running Presentation server 4 and the other Citrix metaframe 1.8

The problem has started with the New Citrix / Xenapp client.
How can I get it to allow a simple remote desktop connection as with the previous version. When I try and add a new ICA connection  it will not allow me to enter it into the server name field. With the previous version it was just possible to cut and past it in but not with the latest one. However, even with that I get a message What is the address of the server hosting your published resources even thou the connection works fine.  
I looked thou the documentation and there does not seem to be a clear way to do this.

If your using program neighboorhood, I used to get around having to update all my static ICA server connections after each client upgrade by copying my appsrv.ini (C:\Documents and Settings\dborger\Application Data\ICAClient) out before the upgrade and then back in after.

Also, there was an option during the client install to Enable Custom ICa Connections. If that was not checked you would not have that option.

Hi dborger
Thank you for the .ini file trick. I found the last Citrix client that had installed correctly and copied over the files. So far it has worked with no problems.

Many Thanks.
