Checking application launches
August 3, 2023
Before applying the configured Applications Launch Control rules, you can test any application to determine which Applications Launch Control rules are triggered by that application.
By default, Kaspersky Industrial CyberSecurity for Nodes denies the launch of applications whose launch is not allowed by a single rule. To avoid the denial of the launch of important applications, you need to create allowing rules for them.
If the launch of an application is controlled by several rules of different types, denying rules are given priority: the launch of an application will be denied if it falls under even one denying rule.
To test Applications Launch Control rules:
- Open the Applications Launch Control rules window.
- In the window that opens, click the Show rules for the file button.
The standard Microsoft Windows window opens.
- Select the file whose start control you want to test.
The path to the specified file is displayed in the search field. The list contains all rules that will be triggered when the selected file is started.
