Hopefully I can explain our situation.

We access our database remotely via Citrix.   To control the users desktops we use Tricerat's Simplify Suite.
In Simplify Suite we can give the user a Trishell whichs lets them only see what we designate.   One of the programs that is on the desktop is Access which we have been using for 15 years.

If I change the users desktop to allow them to see it as Explorer, (which means no programs are mapped out) and they navigate to the Database server and open the .accde file it states read only.
I verified the security and it is Everyone Full Control.

What do I need to do to run Access from Explorer via Citrix?

FYI, I have contacted Tricerat and they state it has nothing to do with their software.
