We are using Citrix Xenapp 7.8 and all our users have roaming profiles. I am having an issue with one program.  Usually if this happens to a user on a PC with a local profile I delete a registry key which resets the program settings back to default.   How can I do this with a roaming profile?

Log the user out.
Open regedit.exe
Go to the HKEY_USERS hive.
Click Load Hive on the menu
Browse to the user's roaming profile \\SERVER\SHARE\profile and open the file ntuser.dat
Remove the key
Use Unload Hive option to unload the roaming profile (do not forget this step!)
