Xenapp 5 - running an app from an ICA file.
Posted on 2010-11-08
I'm running a Xenapp 5.0 farm on server 2008, and we have one odd requirement to launch an app from an ICA file which then connects to an older Citrix server (in another farm) hosted by a 3rd party (not sure what version of Citrix, but it runs on NT4.0!). I do not have any access to (from an admin perspective) tothe external farm.
I've got the app to launch and run successfully, the only functionality that doesn't work is that the app has an 'export to Excel' function, and when this is selected, nothing happens.
Excel is installed on my Xenapp5 server, and I have other apps published on my farm that have similar interaction with Excel and work OK on this box. I've also tested this by directly running the ICA on the server, rather than published with the same results.
This has worked previously, the only thing that has changed is that I am now publishing the ICA file from a different box (I wasn't given a copy of the original ICA file, only the connectivity info), which makes me think the 3rd party app is ok, but I need to change something my end, probably in the ICA file.
The ICA file config is -
PersistentCachePath=C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\ICAClient\Cache
Thank you for reading, and any thoughts would be appreciated,
