I am having a little problem in have users copy games on our File servers and on there workstations?  These games are just sinlge file .exe so there is no setup.

Is there a policy that can be set to allows certain files to be copied to the File server and workstation or not all .exe files to be copied?  Possibley a program that monitors this.

There is a polict that lets you choose which EXE files may be run.

That may be sufficinet for you.

I hope this helps !

I do not know of any easy way to do this.

You could use a script or batch file to delete all *.exe, *.com or *.vbs files in user directories, or use a program that checks for differences.

Other than that, I do not see any easy way to resolve this.

 I hope this helps !
