Hi

We are running Citrix PS 4.5 on Windows 2003 Servers and have a Web Interface. From what I understand, users can browse to the WI and download and install the ICA from there without having local admin rights on their machines.

Can anyone explain how this is so? How does the client get installed without the user requiring local admin rights? I thought that was always a necessity for installing s/w on a machine?

The ICA client is an ActiveX control. Basically, it's a browser (Internet Explorer) plugin/add-on. Admin rights are not required to install ActiveX controls.
