supports Administrators to convert a WindowsXP workstation into a
Citrix ICA Thin Client.
After setup of ThinXP a Windows XP workstation behaves similar as for example a Windows CE Thin Client. It uses the Citrix ICA Client as shell replacement.
ThinXP is able to run the Citrix Desktop from the Citrix Program Neighborhood, instead of launching the Windows Desktop of the Workstation on startup.
This means that the user can't access the Windows Desktop (Kiosk mode). Instead of the Windows Desktop only the Citrix ICA Desktop is shown to the User.
ThinXP gives also the ability to force a auto logon as local or as AD-Domain User on the Windows XP Workstation.
To use ThinXP the Citrix ICA Client software has to be installed on the Workstation. ThinXP was tested with the Citrix Win32 ICA Client Version 10.
It supports (was tested) only on Windows XP
Be carefull with autologon feature ! Make sure that pressing shift key during logon is enabled on your System before using ThinXP! Otherwise you will lock yourself out from the workstation ! If you have locked yourself out by autologon press the shift key during logon! The windows logon screen should now appear again, logon as administrator.In the ThinXP window click explorer radio button and the run explorer now button !This works only if the shift key during logon was not dissabled on your System !
to check if the
shift key during logon is not dissabled. Open regedit and have a look
if the following registry key exists
If this key exists and the value is set to 1 then the shift key during logon is dissabled ! In this case dont run ThinXP before you have enabled the shift key by setting the IgnoreShiftOverride value to 0 !
ThinXP requieres the following additional Software
win32 ICA Client (tested with Version 9.xx and 10)
if you need to save the password encrypted for the autologon
autologon.exe from formerly Sysinternals and copy into the ThinXP directory
