    Hi,

    I want to exclude a folder within my profile folder under Windows XP from realtime scanning with AMON. The folder contains the offline cache database of my Email client.

    It looks like this:

    C:\Documents and Settings\myusername\Local Settings\Settings\Company\

    Normally i would just add that path. But now I want to create a .XML config file that is valid for any PC and any user. So I would need to mask the username bit.

    I have tried various strings like:

    *\Local Settings\Settings\Company\
    *\Local Settings\Settings\Company\*
    C:\Documents and Settings\*\Local Settings\Settings\Company\
    C:\Documents and Settings\*\Local Settings\Settings\Company\*
    %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Settings\Company\
    %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Settings\Company\*

    to no avail. Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance.

    - kongo

    Wildcards in exclusions are partially supported in v3 (EAV/ESS). As for variables, they are neither supported in v2 nor v3.

    Thanks for you reply. So in other words it is impossible in v2 and

    C:\Documents and Settings\*\Local Settings\Settings\Company\*

    would work in v3?
