    I don't know. Why don't you give it a try and tell us how it goes. You can make it an informal test.

    Once it is run the HIPS from OA showed recognize it and give you an alert. I tried it today with a USB that had a keygen on it. I went to execute it and it asked me if I really wanted to be running this program. It was giving me an angry red screen.
