On a windows terminal server, we are using the "run only allowed windows
applications" (we are in a domain). We are having problems when opening tiff
attachments. First I modified the registry so the temporary location of tiff
images goes to the users personnal folder on the network using the U: drive
mapped there since the user has full control on it (because we hide the C:
drive of the server through GPO).

It still says that the GPO is blocking it. If I save the attachement on the
desktop, I can open the attachement without a problem. This only happens with
tiff attachments in outlook only. They can open any other attachments from
outlook directly without saving anywhere.

1- Any idea what I have to add in the list of allowed applications?
2- Is there a way to see what process or file that is blocked by gpo's? I
don't see anything in event viewer and don't know any tools that does that.

Hello dkblee,

To create a .msi package you need 3rd party tools or an older one which was
included within 2000 server installation disk.

Veritas WinINSTALL LE:

Also see this posting about using ORCA instead: rdevelopment/thread/3e18f549-15c6-4d85-a87e-40738f2655b9

Depending on the software it can be possible to install it with startup script,
check that with the vendor of the software.

Best regards
