We have recently got a Citrix server to allow our remote site users to run the same bespoke in-house software the main office has.
We have Citrix Metaframe Presentation Server 4, running on Windows 2003 Server (including Terminal Services). The Citrix server’s system drive is mapped to Q: (with R: being it’s CDROM) so that any user can still have access to their own C: and drives.
Groupwise and Formativ seemed to have installed perfectly well and my Formativ applet runs OK.
Q1) I assume that Formativ itself will only operate using Q: and not inadvertantly try and access applets or files on the user’s C: drive? (ignoring any specific calls I might write in my applets)
To make my applet aware of the Q: drive I was trying to use the Registry object to retrieve the computer’s name so I could then adjust the root drive letter as appropriate.
My test applet worked on my PC but not on the Citrix server – even though I can see that the same key exists in the Local_Machine area of the registry by using regedit (within my Citrix session)
Q2) Is there some restriction that would stop Formativ reading the Registry?
Q3) Also, are there any other considerations I need to be aware of when using Formativ under Citrix? We are only just starting out so I can adjust our plans accordingly.
