Citrix XenDesktop

Hi,
I'm having a problem getting Citrix XenDesktop to load from a browser after installing it all.
Background;
It's all running on VMware, I have set it up correctly as far as i can tell, I can create VM's from the Xen studio, but the desktops all say "Unregistered" which i think is the main problem.
When i log onto the web interface, i can log in but then it just hangs trying to connect.
Any ideas?
I'm running VSphere 4, and Citrix Desktop Studio 5

just re-installed it all again with a new "Master" Windows 7 VM that i used to replicate. All registered fine.
Not sure what caused the original problem but at least i have it working now.

Are you using Active Directory or the Windows Registry to ensure the VMs register with your DDC?  Using the Registry is the preferred method.  The key is located at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Citrix\VirtualDesktopAgent\ListOfDDCs.

I'm using AD. I will try the other method you suggested. do you have any guides on how to do this in any detail?

AD registration was the default method with XD4.  With XD5 Citrix recommends using the Registry.  Look at the following for instructions: http://docs.citrix.com -> XenDesktop -> XenDesktop 5 -> Manage -> Managing your Controller Environment -> About Controller Discovery.
