hi

not sure if that is the correct section, sorry if it isn't.

when i try to run a specific exe i get the following error:


anyone ever seen this message before? i don't know if that is relevant, but the exe i am trying to run is located on an older partition that was made under win XP. but i already changed owner and full permissions on the whole partition to myself in win7. how do i solve this problem?

the output of gpresult /z

Do you get the error when you click on "Run as administrator"?

Try changing the security policy. Go to gpedit.msc-computer configuration-windows settings-security settings-local policies-security options.Change "User Account Control: Behavior of the elevation prompt for standard users:" to "prompt for credentials". This will result in blocked programs prompting for elevation. When it does, enter your admin password.

If you are part of a domain, then it may ahve to do with network security policy, for which you'll need to contact your network admin (as the error message says).

yes, i am running the program as admin.

not part of a domain as seen in gpresult:
Domain Type: Local Computer

i am beginning to think it has nothing to do with group policies at all and the error might be misleading, but i don't know what to do next.

Did you try changing the security setting?

What you can do is take ownership of the .exe and indeed of all folders and drives on your computer. This should resolve any permissions issue. See the tutorial below.

Hello Arp, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It sounds like the program may have been blocked using AppLocker. Double check in the AppLocker rules to see if one was created to block that program.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

hello Shawn, thanks for the reply.

there were no items listed in the rulesets, i also added the exe that causes this error in a allowed rule, but the same error appears.

If it's not AppLocker then do you have Software Restriction Policy enabled. Here's a bat file(code) I use to disable it on the fly wihtout entering Local Security to turn it off. I also use one to turn it back on, it's just easier this way. All it does is set it back to the default level of allowed. Run it and then try running your app. I have shortcuts to each bat file on my start menu for quick access

Code:
REG ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Safer\CodeIdentifiers\ /v DefaultLevel /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00040000 /f
