I have a bit of an issue after an upgrade to 4.5. I have installed rollup R04 on my server.

I have some published application, specifically one that runs in a 640X840 session size. What happends is the window slowly will grow in size until it fills the screen up. so if i have a 800X600 screen on my terminal, and my published app starts up in a window, the window will slowly grow to 800X600, not sure what is going on with this.

It looks like the publsihed application has been set up to run full screen.. Look at the published applications properties if this is the case.. You should also be able to set up a size you'd like it to be..

Yeah it is setup at 640X480, i have tried multiple settings. this has happend since the upgrade to 4.5 from 4.0. We have been running on 4.0 for a couple of years without issue. I dont' think it is a setting problem but more of a hotfix issue.

Pff, never had any of these issues before.. SO your screen is at 640 * 480 when you start up the application then??

It could aff course also be a Citrix general setting that overrides the application setting..

Yeah it is the oddest thing. I have terminals that the screen resolution is set to 800X600. I have a published app that is set to 640x480. WHen i launch the published app, every second or so it grows just a tad bit and will eventually fill up 800X600. Friday i wil be testing this with another application to see if it is will the application itself. It happens all all terminals so i know it is in issue with the upgrade.

The terminals havent't been upgraded in any way??
Still it looks like some sort of setting in your Citrix server itself..

no the terminals have not changed. We have around 60 or so terminals. about 20 of those are terminals that are specific to this application. We have been running good without problem for a couple of years. We starting getting complaints of this problem recently and the only thing that has changes was the upgrade. The other thing thats odd is the the screen will show up in different places, it is supposed to show up the middle but sometimes it shows up in the top left. Top left is the angle the screen grows to.

Today i'll be trying different things

1st Another app is high on the list after i change it to 640-480
2nd Fixed window size if i am able to replicate the issue
3nd burn it all and have them go back to paper

It looks like i resolved the issue, the fix was to upgrade the ICA clients on the terminals to the latest version. For some reason the old version of ICA caused this.
