Wow, a lot of activity on this thread since I last checked. I will have to take some time to look at the many posts, but am slammed at work (and at home) and won't be able to till next week. I just wanted to announce that AppGuard version 3.5 is finally ready for anyone that wants to beta trial it. It is available here: http://www.blueridge.com/support/products/beta/AppGuardSetup.exe These are the enhancements and bug fixes in 3.5: A “Message Info” dialog was added to the user interface. Support for Office 2013 and Office 365 on Windows 8: Previous versions of AppGuard were preventing Office attachments from being opened by Outlook 2013 on Windows 8. Limited Wildcard support: The “*” wildcard character is supported at the end of the following policy fields: User-space folder policy. Guarded Application Folders: Private Folders Exception Folders Protected Folders AppGuard will connect to a Blue Ridge server to check for updates when it first starts and approximate every 24 hours after it starts. If AppGuard fails to reach the Blue Ridge Server, it won't retry the connection until it is restarted (or 24 hours elapses). Previous versions of AppGuard would retry the connection every 15 seconds until it was successful. Privacy Mode is no longer set to On for all applications in the Locked Down Protection level. The configuration UI was enlarged. This release of AppGuard has the following defect fixes: Several defects related to suspending and re-enabling privacy mode were fixed in this release. In the previous release, if the parental controls prohibited modification of power apps and was later allowed, non-super users were still prohibited from modifying power applications until the AppGuard application was restarted. This defect has been fixed in this release. The new features are documented in the release notes which can be found here: http://www.blueridge.com/support/products/beta/AppGuard_ReleaseNotes_3_5.pdf If you have any issues, please contact AppGuard@BlueRidgeNetworks.com I will try to monitor the forum, but will be unavailable on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. If you run into something major that needs my attention someone on our AppGuard support staff will alert me. Thanks for your patience.
