Citrix Isolation Environment file update

dunnoh asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-08
Hey Guys!
This is something that has been an annoyance for quite some time and I expected Citrix to patch it but since they aren't doing it maybe it's something I'm doing wrong.

We are using an access application that creates temporary local tables with AIE.  We need to modify the original access file every so often.  As you probably know, the Citrix AIE creates a folder in %userprofile%\Application Data\Citrix\AIE with the environment name.  Now whenever we update the file, I have to manually go and delete the AIE folder in each profile using the application (locally on the server, and the roaming profile) so that they get the update.  Somehow, AIE doesn't detect that the file has changed and keeps using the version in its "cache".

Is there a patch that I can't find, or maybe a switch when running AIErun, or an option somewhere that I didn't see that would help me with this?
