Hello All,

Our not-for-profit org has just implemented a payroll app that is Java based.  The app works fine on desktops and laptops that do not have any sort of mandatory profile or group policy assigned to it.  Our citrix environments users do have issues in that the Java.exe does not load correctly, the files are not stored where we have specified and continues to fail.

Can anyone point me to a resource that explains where the settings that control  these interactions live and how to change them for GP, mandatory profiles, etc.
