IT Admins wishing to deploy the Receiver for BlackBerry via their BES servers should download the file below for both touch and non-touch supported devices for staging in their environments.  Extract this file to a folder, and using the BlackBerry Desktop Manager install the Citrix Receiver on the device(s) through CitrixReceiver.alx.  The same ALX file can be used for installation on both touch and non- touch devices.  It will detect the device and install the receiver.  An error message will be displayed on incompatible devices.
