Executable from CD / USB
Am I wrong to assume that schools don't allow the running of executable files from CD/USB etc? Having a debate with a software company who imply it's not the norm.

Other threads on here where people have asked and implemented to restrict executable file types from launching via auto run or by students using both GPO and or USBDLM and one or two other utilities.
So afaik seems normal to me to restrict students etc from running executables from removable media ( usb flash memory sticks or optical drives ), generally removing the optical drive(s) and inserting blanking plates instead.

We do not allow the running of executables, msi's, etc from removable media.

Complete block unless on the C drive or an approved network location.

Think this is just badly designed software and I was being fobbed off. :-D
