Issue



How do you get a Host Integrity (HI) policy to run program when the program has a space in the name?

Symptoms
You create a Host Integrity (HI) custom policy to run a program from a path with space in it, for example, C:\Program Files\abc.exe. However, the Host Integrity policy could not launch program. The policy works fine when there is no space in the path.



Solution



This is the default behavior. To run a program from a Host Integrity policy that includes a path with a space in it, you need to use " ", for example: "C:\Program Files\abc.exe".
