Actually, that is how it works by default on a Mac.  I'm assuming OS X here.
I use a PowerBook every day to access our environment.  You can change all
of that though.  By default, all the browsers use the Desktop (folder) for
their downloads.  You can change that to another directory, but you will see
the Launch.asp file drop down to the Desktop by default.  Then they click on
it to launch Citrix, just as you described.  You can configure the browser
to just handle the launch.asp files to open the Citrix session
automatically.  This used to be the default, but that was changed earlier
due to concerns over security and allowing your browser to just open any
file type automatically.
Which browser are you using?

Yes I've have seen this. I believe it is caused by the MIME type on the IIS

Hey guys,


I have a MAC client that after installing the ICA client for MAC, they go to
our CSG and login and when they click on a published app to launch it, a
launch.asp file gets put on their desktop automatically and then nothing
happens.  The way that they'll go in from there is to actually launch that
file from the desktop and it will go in that way successfully.  Obviously
this is not the way that it should work.  Anyone seen this before?  Anyone
good with MACs and Citrix?


Thanks in advance,
