AppLocker and App-V 5.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    With the view to block Powershell execution for standard users, we locked the powershell execution using AppLocker for all domain users. This however resulted in every App-V application failing at its very launch (via any entry points in the App-v package).

    These Apps did not have any PS script configured to be run at launch within Deployment / UserConfig xml files.

    App-V launch Error on blocking PS execution via AppLocker

    When running ProcMon, did not find any powershell process entry when this error comes up.

    So was wondering does App-V client use powershell at the very launch of the App-V Application?

    Kindly Advice

  • You can check the AppLocker logs in EventViewer. All AppLocker events are logged there. 

    Did you create AppLocker exclusions for AppV? Like c:\programdata\app-v ?

    We use AppV and AppLocker for some years now, works fine with some AppLocker exclusion.
