    Software Restrictions

    I am trying to implement the Software Restriction but i am having difficulty getting it to work.

    E.G.
    If i just wanted Microsoft Office to work on all Pupil workstation i put all software to disallow and then put the path for Microsoft Word into the "New PAth Rule" unrestricted and do it that way.

    Re: Software Restrictions

    If i have got you right...

    in AD user configuration/administrative templates/windows componats/system/run only allowed windows applications. add in the apps you want to work.

    that will mean only the apps you have specified should run for the users in the OU you have set the policy on

    Re: Software Restrictions

    Does it work when you run the executable straight from the Office folder? If so, you need to put %allusersprofile% into your allowed list.

    Re: Software Restrictions

    Yeah, or remove .lnk files from the list of executable file types. I'd go with Norphy's suggestion. The problem is that it needs to "run" the item in the start menu, then run the actual program.

    If your users are picking up some start menu items from the default user profile rather than all users (generally not good anyway, but that's another story) then you might need to loosen up restrictions on %userprofile%\Start Menu
