Written by Ingmar Verheij on May 6th, 2010. Posted in XenApp (Presentation Server)

No doubt that this messag is usefull, but somethimes you want to prevent this message. Your users might find this annoying, or you want to enable client access in your corporate image.

You can prevent the message by placing the file webica.ini in the application data directory of the users profile. The file webica.ini can contain the following content:


Where the GlobalSecurityAccess sets the access you want to grant. The following options are available:
-1 : No security setting is configured;
403 : No Access;
404 : Read Access;
405 : Full Access.

The file needs to be placed in the following directory:
%UserProfile%Documents and SettingsLocalServiceApplication DataICAClient
