    I have written 2 auto-updaters in NSIS.

    I have to set PG into learning mode to remove the popups about random generated files "ns****.tmp" wanting to execute. (Located in the TEMP folder)

    They're temp files for the NSIS applications I wrote, and are necessary for them to work.

    I would like to know how to somehow add a wildcarded file to PG to allow the execution of all "ns****.tmp" files ;)

    Not sure if this is possible, but I would be grateful if anyone has a solution for me :)

    Hi Kye, Wildcards are not featured yet in ProcessGuard. Hopefully DCS will take your suggestion on board for a future release.

    I understand why you want the feature, but I do not understand how it is a good idea. Allowing wildcards sounds like a good way to defeat the purpose of Process Guard.

    I'd agree here - especially with temporary files which always go in the same folder. A more secure alternative would be to have a "Run other programs" Protection option which would permit that program to start others - this could be set for installers and possibly offered as an option in PG's Execution prompt.
