Citrix Receiver 4.2 Published Desktop App Not Auto Adding

Farm: Citrix XenApp 6.5
Client: Citrix Receiver 4.2
OS: Windows 7 Pro

We are migrating from the Citrix XenApp Hosted 12.3 client app to the Citrix Receiver 4.2 app, but we are not able to get a published desktop app to auto-add to the "Favorites" of the Receiver and also to get a desktop shortcut created.

I have read this: http://docs.citrix.com/en-us/receiver/windows/4-2/ica-overview-receiver-config/receiver-windows-configure-app-delivery-wrapper.html#par_richtext_2

I applied the GPO according to the above link, but still no dice.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I resolve it myself; the fix is to use the Citrix Receiver 4.3 version and the corresponding GPO.

Resolved it myself by trouble-shooting.

Actually, published apps are still not being automatically added to Favorites. This is what triggers the desktop shortcuts.
Freda Driscoll-SbarDirector of System OperationsAuthor Commented:
'KEYWORDS:Auto' in description of app is not auto adding it/subscribing it to the Favorites section.

Update: adding 'KEYWORDS:mandatory' , or 'KEYWORDS:auto' (case sense) with Receiver 4.3 did the trick.
