Oh yeah. You can do the Clientinfo util with the INI's and OPS files
(haven't yet, but should be easy)

The CCS util is cool, fast, and too much to install sometimes.

For configuration the big thing is only having a single point to change
instead of multiple. Basically they both are smoke mirrors!

Not that I've looked / tried, but is clientinfo / Citrix SDK the only
you could establish the app in use?

In which case, you merely have to implement some kind of selective /
conditional branching in your scripting (as well as separate ini and ops

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to pick holes in what you've said,
nor in
the CCS method - merely trying to understand whether it would be easily
possible to do the same.
