I have created a package for the Citrix ICA Client. Is there anyway to grab the current PC name and add that to the correct registry key during setup? With my current package I have to do that manually.

Thanks,

Try using [ComputerName] in place of the name of the computer that was captured.

nicholas_ong,

I tried adding %computername% before but that didnt work. It just stays that way when you open the Citrix ICA Client settings. I'm sure there is a way to pull the computer name and update this registry key. I'm pretty new to the Admin Studio suite but determined to figure this out.

Thanks,

You have to use the square brackets instead of %
as in [ComputerName]

Nicholas_Ong,

Just a question! Is something like [ComputerName] case sensitive with regards to AdminStudio?

The property value is a feature of Windows Installer (you can edit your msi using ORCA and still use the property). I believe that it is case sensitive however I could be wrong.
