    My bad, I forgot that pack wasn't GA...

    The basic answer is to install the Windows Desktop Experience pack, as CarlWebster correctly pointed out.

    Note that this is installed by default in XenApp 6.5, along with some other features to further polish the experience, such as removing the Windows Server Manager from the toolbar and relocating the Citrix administrative tools to the Administrative Tools folder (not to mention some pretty cool performance enhancements, such as instant app launch)...if you have current SA the upgrade from 6 to 6.5 is definitely worth the effort.
