Problem with Citrix Receiver 4.0 MSI installation

I have a problem with Citrix Receiver Inside 4.0. Native install which is .exe unpacks ten .msi's to %temp%. I took these .msi's, made transforms in which i made some changes, added some properties etc., made an install.bat file which installs them in right order. Installation ends succesfully, logs of all installation setups show no errors. There is only one problem with the app, after installing. In tasklist there are originally three options after right clicking on the citrix icon: help, about and open which is responsible for entering the add citrix account screen. After my install, there are only two: help and about (without open at the top). However i can enter add citrix account screen by choosing configuration wizard.exe in installdir. Originally double clicking on the citrix icon in tasklist cause add citrix account screen shows up, and double clicking after my install cause about screen shows up. No open option makes my app not functional. I cannot find any property or registry responsible for that. Help! :)

Enable Windows Installer logging (voicewarmup -http://support.microsoft.com/kb/223300) and install on a clean machine.

This will give you a log file for each of the MSI installations in the %temp% directory.

Check each one, specifically the 'command line' entries, as this will show you what has been passed to the installer by the setup executable. This could be a property or an ADDLOCAL, for example,  that you haven't accounted for in your MSTs.

Incorporate these into your MSTs where applicable and re-test - there's going to be something there that will help you out.

Hope that helps,
