I have a citrix farm that I publish an application from. Most users are getting the seamless published application while a few users are getting a full seamless desktop. Security in AD is correct. Security on the pub app is correct.
I have copied profiles from working users to the non-working users and still the same results.

Need to figure out why some users are doing this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Full desktop with start menu and all. If is only specific users. Using PN and it can happen from the same workstation. It looks to be tied to the user but no group policies setup, no permision or setup differences between working users and non working users. Windows 2008 domain and windows 2003 citrix servers.

Can you publish the application again? or publish another test version and see if it still happens?

check the user account  and verify that "Start the following program at logon" is not ticked under the 'Environment' tab in AD. Even if the  program location was blank, it may be enough to keep the citrix app from loading

can you verify that tha published app is actually installed on the servers that it's set to run on? perhaps try limiting the server list as a test.

If you are using roaming profiles can you verify the rights to the profile repository for the users with the issue compared to the users without?

The problem occurs when the TS profile path is set using the AD Users & Computers console of Win2K8.
If you use the AD Users & Computers console of Win2K3 or a VBScript to set the TS profile path, published applications are launched as expected.

When the Win2K8 console has been used to modify a user object, the object becomes corrupted. In fact, only the attribute named "UserParameters" is corrupted. This attribute contains the TS parameters, like profile, timeout...
