Hi Folks,
Here is my dilemma.  We cloned all of our workstations with the citrix
client preinstalled.
Well we started putting the new machines out and have learned that when
clients connect the computername is coming up the same for all of them. Thus
when they print it is anybodies guess as to where the print job will go. The
name is not coming from the wfcname.ini, rather it is coming from the Citrix
registry key below.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

"DeskTopLink"="\\Documents and Settings\\All Users.WINNT\\Desktop\\Citrix
Program Neighborhood.lnk2"



I tried creating a reg file and setting the clientname to the variable
%computername%  to see if I could change it via a logon script but this does
not work.
This must be something new with the newer client versions (or with
W2K)because we have not had this problem with cloning before when we were on

1.  This may be an explanation why people are having problems with users
printing to other peoples printers if they clone their units.
2.  Any other suggestions how to remedy this via script without having to
reinstall the client on all of the ones I have out.
