AppLocker publishing rule for Outlook DLL

EE,

I wasn't able to publish a basic allow rule for an OfficeAddin2007.dll under every users profile i.e. c:\users\john\AppData\Local\etc\etc\Office2007.dll

From Windows 7, I browsed to Outlook.exe and just raised the bar to any publisher from Office Outlook hoping that would take care of all Office products anywhere on the system but no luck. I then went and auto created rules but did not auto create this (perhaps it didn't have permission to the appdata folder)

Any assistance is appreciate. I will be making publisher rules for every product we license as well so I can use this knowledge to knock out a bunch of other publishers before we enforce the rules

Thanks in advance

Please consult the event log to see what exactly is being blocked. Applocker has its own log section.

The path to the error is from the Event log "warning" 8006 or something. I already have everything setup including the collector, GPOs etc. I'm testing on a single computer in audit mode but do have hundreds of similar events from the collector that I need to flush out before enforcing

Yes of course, the warning is from c:\users\john\AppData\Local\etc\etc\OfficeAddin2007.dll ran but would not have if applocker were enforced.

I'm a little bit further along then you think. The question is how to publish a rule to allow this. I tried browsing to Outlook.exe and using the scroll bar to allow all publishers under Office Outlook or something with no luck

Did you enable the dll rule collection? I don't see how this could fail.
