Here's a solution from Citrix Solutions Forums for dephi applications. =
It
worked for a Delphi application with which I had trouble. The only =
difficult
part is determining the name of the Window Class.

a)Run Regedt32

There's some issue with Delphi programs that stops their icon appearing =
on
the taskbar. I've never been able to get to the bottom of it so if my =
apps
need to make themselves known they put an icon in the system tray by the
clock.

Some task bar apps will no show icon under Citrix. This is considered a =
flaw

with their implementation, since it can be fixed within original code (I =
had

this issue with one of my apps as well). Should they blame Citrix? Not =
sure.

Anything can be done about existing apps? Probably not (without code=20
change).
