Hi I'm trying to get an ICA Client setup on a new iMac.  I have the ICA client installed and I can open the ICA Client Editor and configure the session, for a full desktop, and I can connect. However when I go to save the configuration it only saves a text file to the desktop.  

How do I get the custom ICA connection shortcut to the desktop.  We don't publish applications, instead we give them a full desktop session. They are connecting to a Server 2008 R2 Citrix server, if that matters.

That's odd - it should be saving a .ICA file which in turn should associate with the ICA Client.

However - which version if Citrix is in use? Is there a Web Interface anywhere? If so, it might be easier to use the latest Citrix Receiver and get them to browse to the WI site via a web browser.

No web interface available so the receiver is not an option.

Would changing the file extension of the text document to ".ICA" be a plausible solution?

Normally yes. But it makes me wonder why it either didn't do this or has the wrong program associated.

Renaming the file with a .ica extension worked.
