Definitely an association issue.  You don't have to reinstall though, just run 
wfica32.exe /setup from the ICA Client directory on the workstation and it will 
fix the issue.  Happens most if you are deploying the client using SMS or 
Active directory or any other method of deployment.

Subject: [THIN] HP pavilion Laptop and Web client

I had case that has been frustrating me for a long time.  2 users have HP 
pavilion laptops ( I dont have hte exact model number) but they were running 
WinXP all patched up properly and no matter what I did they would never launch 
the Web plugin.  Even using File-mon to try and se the processes never yielded 
any clues.  There were no error messages, nothing in the event log, and no 
TSCAL issues.  The ICA file was associated with the Citrix Runtime, but  
nothing would ever launch.  Out of Depseration I finally installed the Full PN 
and suddenly they started connecting like normal. WHile I am currently calling 
case closed, any idea why this is happening would be helpful.

I have had rare cases where I can tell there are no licensing issues, the 
client installs, the file associations look good, but when you try to launch 
the ICA file either from within WI or saved to desktop and launched manually 
never even shows that its attempting to connect.  Again there are no error 
messages anywhere I can find and file association looks good.  This is 
happenign with one other individual currently, he is not on a pavalion.  I have 
installed the Full PN and still ge the same result.
