  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting your issue in the forum.

    Based on your description, I suspect that maybe Software Restriction Policy has been configured in the domain. At this time, I suggest we could try to collect the following information to narrow down the cause of the issue.

    GPMC.log

    ==================

    a. On domain controller, click Start ->Run, type GPMC.MSC, it will load the GPMC console.

    b. Right click on "Group Policy Result" and choose wizard to generate a report for the problematic computer and user account (please place appropriately). (Choose computer and select the proper user in the wizard)

    c. Right click  the resulting group policy result and click the "Save Report…" => save report to save the report to a HTML file.

    Once we get the report, please check if the Software Restriction Policy has been configured and applied to the problematic computers and users. If so, please disable the policy setting to see if the issue persists.

    In addition, please try to refer to the following articles for detailed information about Software Restriction Policy and how to troubleshoot Group Policy problems.
