Share folder / files in Citrix Xenapp 6

What's the best way to share a network folder via Citrix XenApp 6?  I've tried to add the share folder under "Content" type, however, when i open it in the remote computer, it opens up the local windows explorer.  Which means that when i open up a file, it'll open up the application locally on the Citrix client.

i want the application from the citrix server (not locally) to be used when opening the file.   i know i can setup an application for word, excel, etc... i'd much rather have just a folder view of files to the be able to open through the citrix server's applications.  

i'd like to see if i can avoid using Desktop for this.

hope that wasn't confusing :S  thanks!

We publish Explorer for this using:

%SystemRoot%\Explorer.exe /e \\computername\foldershare

as the command line and it works great, from Citrix's workaround here:
