    Software Restriction policy blocking .exe from running directly from CD

    Hi

    As title. This is a small CC4 network by the way, and i'm very new to it.

    I've opened the software restriction policy part of the CC4 console, but there are LOADS of things in there.

    The CD in this case has 3 small ish .exe files on it, and non of them are allowed to run. The software restriction policy error just pops up.

    In RMMC go to software restrictions, then in the main pane at the top there are 2 radio buttons, select file rules. Click add and a box will then pop up asking for you to browse to the location of the file (I would recommend copying the exe's to a temporary folder on the server before hand). After you have browsed to the file make sure the dropdown list is set to 'allow to run' and hit ok. Also make sure you click save towards the bottom right after each exe you do.
    One thing to note is RMMC can be quite buggy doing this at times so if you get a random error when hitting save, close RMMC and reopen, re do the exe and should save ok.
    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
    Chris
