Citrix error when trying to publish htm content

I need to publish some content for an upcoming audit and it involves publishing a .htm document. The document has some html code that will automatically log the user into the secured website. here is the code in the file:

<html> <body onload="f1.submit();"> <form id=f1 action="https://www.samplewebsite/default.aspx" method=post><input id=uid name=uid type=text value=sampleuserid style="visibility: hidden"><input id=pwd name=pwd type=text value=samplepassword style="visibility: hidden"><input type=submit  style="visibility: hidden"></form> </body> </html>

Basically it opens the site and throws a username and password in and logs in.  I tried to publish this as content and when I doubleclick on the icon I get the following error message:

"A Citrix Error occurred when the application was run, and the local Citrix application provided no further information (Code 255)"

At first I figured that IE was blocking content so I logged onto the server as the user and it was blocking so I allowed the content in IE under that user, logged out and tried to login to the thin client and get to it again and received the same error.

i'm not sure what the problem is or which way to go from here. I am assuming that the best way to present this is via published content vs. published app. one thing that I don't want to do is give them access to anything else other than this site so just generically publishing IE won't work for me.

Anyone have any ideas? I sure would appreciate it.

I've once had issues with the correct displaying of a webpage within Citrix, even though it worked when logged on locally.

This was solved by creating a GPO which runs "runonce.exe /AlternateShellStartup" once (per server) when the user logs on.
You could see if this works for a test user.

I think I've settled on publishing the site in kiosk mode and trying to autocomplete the username/password. so far I've saved the username/password, but you have to type the first letter of the username in order to get it to come up. any ideas on that?
