I would appreciate some advice on passing through a usb drive to an ica session in ctx 4.5.  I can do it when I (domain admin) login to an ica session, yet as a normal user, I cannot.  I also need to be able to do this with HP thin clients running Windows CE 5 and 6.  Thanks for any advice anyone can give to us.

I added the user to the same ctx policy as me, and the usb drive passed through on my laptop.  I will test on the thin client next week and report back.  

Thanks for your help.

Created separate CTX policy for user, and it is working fine for this user.
