Windows 7 Pro / Citrix


When trying to save from within a Citrix Session a file to the local harddisc, this does not work. If I try to do so with Windows XP everything works fine!

I tried to give access (security) to the specified directory, disabled the firewall but nothing works. Any idea what could be the reason?

I can see the local drives/directory. In Citrix I can go to the mapped drive, directory's but can not write to them. On a XP machine I can write to them without any problem.

On windows 7 are you accessing your Citrix session from IE 64 bit version?

Try then accessing the session from IE 32 bit version and see if that makes any difference.

Usually the 32 bit IE would be the shortcut icon sitting on the taskbar, or if you go to All Programs in the Start menu you will find the following:
1. Internet Explorer
2. Internet Explorer (64-bit)

Obviously the first is the 32 bit version.
what is the citrix client version that you're using on the Windows 7? You may right click them to verify if ICA file security is set to full access.
