Hi Guys,

Is there anyway through Group Policy that i can allow a certain .exe to run. I had Endpoint installed on a terminal server but when the users log onto it Endpoint tries to install itself (presumably as it detects it's not on) but then won't finish which i suspect is down to Group Policy. I've narrowed down the Endpoint installer to be SMCGUI.EXE and so i'm thinking that if i allow this file then it will let it install and not keep trying to install each time a TS user logs on but how do i do this ?
Hope this makes sense.

So, just logging onto the console doesn't let it run and complete?
