PSB Computer Protection Premium - Dataguard blocking msiexec

CliveC W/ Alumni Posts: 12 Security Scout



I have a user trying to install an application that dataguard is blocking.  This application launches msiexec.exe which in turns try to access a location %userprofile%\Documents\(Extracted folder from download)... as this is where the installation package was downloaded to.  I have tried to add this location as excluded and as trusted on the ACLs on dataguard, however the problem still re-occurs.  

For obvious reasons I do not want to set msiexec as trusted, what is another way that I can work around this to get the application installed?

    Kiitos, it makes sense, will amend the directory where the file is installed from.
