    Hi,

    My biggest nit with PG3 beta was that whenever I ran Primere Liquid Edition it used services.exe to install a driver. This required granting services.exe permission to install a driver, and then when Liquid had started, remembering to revoke it.
    I thought that the final of PG3 had a new method of allowing trusted applications (those in the protection list) to utilise Services.exe to install a driver. However it doesent seem to work. If I add Liquid.exe to the trusted list and run it, a baloon pops up (nice by the way) to say 'Services.exe tries to install a driver named PCD5CX2'. (By the way, there is no file with PCD5CX2 in the filename to add to the protection list.)

    Maybe I misunderstood

    Thanks
    Tom

    Hi Frogfoot, Put Services.exe in the prot list with Allow install/services and drivers. ProcessGuard deals with services.ex safely now.
    Also did you start the program in learning mode? It is essential that you do this for most major programs. Some may also require a reboot.

    HTH Pilli.

    Thanks Pilli,
    So what you are saying is that it is now safe to give Services.exe driver install privs.

    I had actualy turned off learning mode prior to running Liquid. But it seems to work fine now services.exe has the required privs.

    Thanks again
    Tom
