you may want to install or place the exe under program files folder.

Have you tried to create an application exception? - this will exclude the .exe executable according to its hash value:

Hello,

No, you cannot Exclude an UNC path, either exclude the Location on the local machine. Or if it is used as mapped drive exclude that drive.

Check this Thread: https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/excluding-unc-path

Secondly, When setting an Exclusion, you would need to Select one of the nine options: Application, Application to Monitor, Application Control, Extensions, File, Folder, Known Risks, Trusted Web Domain, Tamper Protection Exception.

Note: Wildcard variables such as * and ? are not supported for Known Risks, File, or Folderexceptions. The ? wildcard is supported for Extension exceptions. The Folder exceptions screen will accept * and ? but they will be treated as literal characters not wildcard variables.

Note: For File and Folder-based exclusions, the Full Path to the file must be specified, unless a "Prefix Variable" is selected. If a "Prefix Variable" is selected, the path specified should be relative to the selected "Prefix Variable"
