  • Enforce Security Descriptors will uphold file and folder permissions in your virtual application. So if your application sets permissions, these permissions are also set in the virtual environment which allows you to control applications more granularly.

    Unchecking this will allow the application to run without restricting access to folders or files within the virtual application. This eliminates any issues you may have by an application which tries to write run time files to an otherwise restricted folder or file.
