I'm currently digging into this, apparently for users to use the agent/receiver 
they also need the self service plugin, however that to use that self-service 
plugin to launch applications it requires delivery services.  Delivery services 
kind of being like an improved web interface but not the same thing...?

With the new receiver I've found it respects applications that are pushed into 
the users start menu however it looks to me that you need the self-service 
plugin or they have to hit a web interface server to launch apps that aren't 
pushed into the start menu.  Which is lame.

I don't think this is what you were asking exactly but figured I'd at least 
share in your "WTF citrix?" moment...

Subject: [THIN] Receiver 3.0 changed end user icon?

We have installed the receiver 3.0 on our test environment.
We use xenapp only - not XenDesktop etc...
And have found that when calling pnagent.exe or pnmain.exe the icon is now 
black - called the receiver - along with numerous and options to exit, 
Preferences etc.....

All the 'right click' option have changed - users can open preferences and turn 
on settings, right click and exit the application.

For access 'just the same way as previous' can we just load PNAGENT as it used 
to run?
Or alternatively can we just 'hide the preferences and exit' menu items in the 
receiver window?
If we use this ADM file (or its listed registry keys) 
http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX126787)? If we hide the Icon - how will 
clients refresh their applications?

Or do we need to stay with version 12.x of the XenApp Client and be done with
