WIn 7 not being able to launch application possible Group Policy issue? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    We have a very weird application behavior in our enviorment.  The application was made by a contracted developer and works well with all of our XP machines.  The problem is on our Windows 7 64bit machines.  We have a couple of Windows 7 Pro 64bit machines that are able to run the application with a single domain user.  but if we add another user to the machine, that new user is unable to run the same app.    I cant pin down if group policy is blocking the execution of the file or some sort of local policy.  None of our domain policies have software restrictions or application restrictions enabled.  Its been very frustrating since we are trying to rollout Windows 7.   Any help or feedback would be greatful!

    Thanks

  • What error message did you receive when you run this application with local user?

     

    That’s difficult to say which GPO restrict your application. For Windows 7 have GPO restriction by default.

     

    Another possible is this application has some incompatible issue with Windows 7.

  • 1. Go to MMC and add the Group Policy Object Editor snap in. 2. Go to Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Application Compatibility 3. Enable all the turn off entries. 4. Then go to Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Troubleshooting and Diagnostics\Application Compatibility Diagnostics 5. Disable all the entries. 6. Restart the PC.
