Which of course begs the question of what you do when you are trying to uninstall because the IMA service ISN'T working properly in the first case? Open command prompt, navigate to the directory that has the Xenapp...

One nice thing about Xenapp is the ability to have both streamed and presented apps. One not so nice thing is you can't let Citrix control that based on bandwith of the client. Here is a little something you can do to make that happen. Publish your app as Streamed if possible and presented if...

Citrix, stream, streaming, Xen, Xenapp

I really like Citrix Xenapp 5's ability to publish app's by streaming them to the server. For those not familiar with this you package the application (office, etc) using the citrix app packager.
