Citrix Secure Gateway - Changing default client type, and updating client versions

When you hit our CSG, there's a link that points to ica32pkg.msi
I believe there's a script that runs to determine your OS version and check whether or not you have a Citrix client installed before it presents you with the link. Is there a way to have it default to the online plug-in version of the client (as opposed to downloading and installing the presentation server client), and how do I go about updating the client files to the latest versions?

Yes, depending on your web interface version. poke around the Inetpub directory of the web interface. Keep in mind that depending on your config, the web interface might be on the SG server, or elsewhere. Look in the inetpub directory and find the clients folder. This folder holds the installers. Download the newest web client from Citrix and put it into the clients directory. You may have to rename the installer to the old .msi installer name.

The issue with doing that is that currently the link points to ica32pkg.msi and the Citrix Online Plug-in is a .exe

I guess we could try an author a .MSI, but it seems like there should be a simpler way to accomplish this.
