Hey All,

Is it possible to setup Citrix GoToMyPC on a virtual machine. We are using VMWare Server 2.0 and the virtual machine is running XP Pro.

After we go through the GoToMyPC setup as normal the icon appears on the desktop, the program has been added to the program files but the GoToMyPC icon doesn't appear in the system tray like it normally does and the computer account doesn't appear when we log onto the Citrix web site where our other accounts are listed.

Anyone have a fix for this?

    Make sure the VM has access to the internet and it should work.  I have setup logmein, gotomypc, etc.. without any issues.

    I can connect to the Internet no problem. That is how we actually get the install files for GoToMyPC anyways. I am thinking about just rebuilding a new VM and trying to re-install again. Maybe something got screwed up in the registry.
