I am creating a citrix package. I created a transform to get the installation screens that I needed. But how can I configure the client settings so that they are auto configured for the client? Is there a config file with options that I can copy locally to the user's machine?

I configured the Appsrv.ini for enabling certain options under Tools, ICA Settings

Where can/should I configure the PNA settings -
1) I need the Client apps be under a folder called My Apps
There is a text box in the Application Display Tab of the PNA Properties.

(To see the properties - Right click the I (PNA Icon) in the task bar and select properties. Go to Application Display tab)

What settings do you want to set?

I think that the settings in the Application Display tab can be configured on the Citrix Server that the PNA is pointed to.

Thanks. The Package knowledgebase was helpful and it let me set the screen options during installation. That way I do not need a transform to create customized screens, now the user need not select any options during install.

My issue is not during install, it is customization after install.

What I want to configure is that there is an option in the pna properties (it is a check box and a text box in the Application Display Tab of the PNA Properties) to display the user apps under a different directory. Normally after installation and reboot, I have to right click the pn icon (in taskbar), go to application display tab manually and check the box to show the apps in a different directory and then type in my apps in the text box, to show the user apps in a folder called my apps. After doing that the user sees a my apps program group as in the start-programs-my apps.

I want to pre-configure this for the user. How can I do that?

Should I just create couple of registry entries in my wise script?

If you know the correct registry key to make the configuration changes, sure. Just add the appropriate reg key/values to the Wise script or MSI.

Some people prefer to keep config changes separate from the main MSI - for example, with your Citrix app maybe not all users will connect to SERVER1, it depends on whether the config will be global or local. Your local config should best go in a batch/vbscript, or could even be a transform or property value set outside the MSI at the command line.

Thanks all.

Actually found out that there is a config.xml file (on the server) in which the settings for the Citrix Program Neighborhood agent can be set.

This file resides on the server and the pna client points to this file on the server. In the file you can enable or disable a check box or add entry to a text box based on your configuration reqs for the pn agent.

Eg. <SystemTrayMenuDisplay>
<Enabled forcedefault="false" modifiable="true">true</Enabled>
</SystemTrayMenuDisplay>

true = enable (check) the checkbox for "Show in System Tray" option in the pna configuration settings on the Application Display tab.

Similarly other options can be set.

I hope that helps someone else.
