Use the Citrix receiver enterprise on the published desktop and publish apps 
you want to have the control of.  If the app is on the same server it will 
simply act as a shortcut but if on a different server it would create a session 
accordingly.  Also, you will want to use the hidden apps option to hide the 
published desktop icon from the users when they are inside the desktop.  This 
will most likely require you to create your own services site.

Subject: [THIN] Help with Publishing Desktop


I'm looking to publish a XenApp 6.5 desktop.  Ive only ever used Published 
Applications in the past.  The Desktop launches without any issues.  My 
question is in relation to managing Applications.  What's the best way to 
manage Applications in a Published Desktop?.  Users can see all the installed 
Apps on the server but how would I give granular control.  Eg 1 user needs App 
X, I don’t want all users to see App X.  Do I use the receiver which will allow 
icons to be created on the desktop?.   Also what if the published Desktop is 
launched on Server  1 but the user needs an App on Server 2? Is there a way for 
the App to appear on the Published Desktop on Server 1 but the App launches 
from Server 2?

Ideally Id like Apps to be generated on the desktop based on AD user group 
membership.  What's the best practice in accomplishing this?
