We have a number of computers that need to connect to an external company's Citrix Application Set.  There is no form of trust between our domain and theirs.  We can configure this in the program neighborhood manually but that is a per-profile thing.  Is there a way of "installing" an application set on a given PC so it is visible to all users who log on locally to that computer?  We're mainly using Program Neighborhood 9 under Windows XP.

We've been using ICA files for connections to published applications but here we need to connect to a Set.
All I can come up with is a horrible great chunk of VBScript to run on login that checks the local profile's pn.ini and hacks in the relevant lines for the application set in question if they are not already there and creates the pn.ini and relevant folders in %appdata% if not already there.  This seems way too complex and long-winded.  Is there another way?  Bear in mind I have no access to the Citrix servers themselves.

Thanks for any help you can offer!
