Citrix ICA 10.2 package that includes application sets

Hello I am trying to create a package(msi) that will install the Citrix ICA 10.2 client along with two application sets so the users do not have to use the "Find new application set" wizard. I am not finding any docs on this. has anyone done this? Any advice?

Thank you

Citrix ICA is already a msi, you need to add appsrv.ini, pn.ini and wfclient.ini to a mst.

Thank you so much for the reply. I keep reading that those three files are responsible for the settings but can you elaborate more? Should I take the files from a client that already has the application sets configured and deploy them to a new client? I have been trying to include these files (from a working configuration) in new installations and it does not populate the application sets.

Thank You

Create an admin install for the citrix client.

Configure the client as to how you want it to be for your users. These customizations are help in the .ini files that Tone mentioned in the ICAClient folder in the users AppData. E.g for XP "C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\ICAClient\"

You can then copy these files and overwrite the original .ini's in your admin install. For the application sets, I think that you just need to overwrite the pn.ini which would be in the 'Program Files\Citrix\ICA Classic' folder of your admin install. Other settings like passthrough authentication are held in the appsrv.ini

Here is a link to an article that kind of explains how to do it, but I believe the .src files are only used during the actual installation and not after that.

Michaelnowell and Tone,
Thank you both for your quick responses. I have tinkered some and I see now what you mean. I think I can get what I need accomplished based on your information. I really appreciate it very much.
