I take that back...my guy was deleting the value and not the entire key.
Deleting the key(which was my original first thought and what I told him to
do) does appear to work. 
Thanks,
Jim

Delete it. I think that is what I did when I first found that problem.

Or if it is a string value can you change it to an ExpandSZ

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

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICA Client]
"DeskTopLink"=3D"\\Documents and Settings\\All
Users.WINNT\\Desktop\\Citrix
Program Neighborhood.lnk2"
"ClientName"=3D"computername"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICA Client\4.0]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICA Client\4.0\WFCMGR32]


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
NT4.


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.

Thanks,
Jim Kenzig
