Xenapp Published Desktop drive mapping \\client\C$ Temporary internet problem

I have a problem with launching items from Xenapp Publish desktop.
I have the native drive mapping flag enabled but have and issues that goes like this.

User opens Internet explorer to get to sharepoint or any site for that matter.  They open a form or excel doc via the web browser.  The associated app launches but cannot find the following location.  

\\Client\C$\users\username\appdata\local\microsoft\temporary internet files\

It does how ever find the network drives just fine.  I have a block policy via GPO to hide C and other system drives from the user.  It just can not find the above share.

So \\Client\Q$ or what not works fine.

I have tried both the UPM and roamin profiles to handle the appdata folder but the same thing keeps happening.  If I could somehow redirect temp internet to network drive or something it will probably work. But I dunno.

Any ideas I am stumped on this one?

Thanks in advance,

Casey

Yes, as you said redirect appdata completely. See if you have missed anything during folder redirection. Check out this example:

Well I tried that but I still get the same errors. Citrix just seems to not be able to see that when you hide the system drives. So I am not sure how to make the system see it and hide it from the users.

To clarify \\client\C$ refers to the C:\ drive on the client's machine. Not the local C:\ drive on the server that is hidden. You can disable client drive mapping through Citrix policies, which may be the case here. This could possibly have to do with Server to client content redirection. Is IE opening up within the server session, or calling internet explorer on the client machine?

I ended up having to open IE on the app servers to get around it. I do have C: disabled via policies to get around the problem for now.
Still not what the deal is to get this to work.

So I re read what you have stated.   I stated earlier "I have the native drive mapping flag enabled but have and issues that goes like this."  This works for the mapped drives but seems to not work for the local drives.  I am using GPO to block the local drives. Should I do it via Citrix policy instead?

If opening up IE on the server is fixing your issue, than you will want to disable host to client redirection. You can find this policy under Citrix Policies -> User -> File Redirection -> Host to Client Redirection

I did that you were right about that part which was another issue I was having. It still isnt working though. Not sure where the temporary internet files are being used at. Does the UPM handle those somehow?

where does xenapp store its temporary internet files?  If I cd to that directory in the picture it cannot find that location.
