Installing MSI in Citrix and User Profile settings issue


I have a MSI (A word toolbar) which gets installed properly in a physical box. I used Active Setup and it does populates user related stuff in HKCU. For eg: I used [AppDataFolder] property to fetch the users application data path. This path is to create log files. The path created is C:\Documents And Settings\UserIdWhoInstalledMSI\Application Data\MyProductName and this is stored as a value for a HKCU key.

But, the problem arises when I install the MSI in Citrix. We have 'published' MS Word application to all users. The log file path is always shown as C:\Documents And Settings\Administrator\Application Data\MyProductName since the Administrator has installed the MSI.

How to get the Citrix user's name stuffed in C:\Documents And Settings\[UseName]\Application Data\MyProductName?

active setup will not work for published applications in citrix
you will need to use a script to copy the files to the users profile via logon script
do a search there are lots of info on repackaging apps for citrix
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
