    I created GPO to assign an application to users. However, the icon never
    appears on the user's desktop. Instead, the application appears in
    Add/Remove Programs. The GPO behaves as though I'm publishing an
    application, not assigning the application. What am I missing?

  2. What icon? User assignment will add the relevant files to the start menu;
    it won't add them to the desktop. You must then click the app and it will
    install. Or if the user opens a file that is associated with that app.

  4. Is the shortcut in the Start Menu?

    Are there any Userenv or Scecli warnings or errors in the application log of
    the machines in question? If so, have you run them by

    What are the [full] errors, if any?

    No errors - nothing. It just doesn't work as advertised. Assigning and
    publishing behave as one of the same - just publishing.
