Driver Install issues with DLP Endpoint Agent

Created: 08 Nov 2012 | 7 comments

Hi all-


We are having issues where any machine with the DLP agent is installed won't allow any driver installs to complete. We are constantly having to disable the agent when performing driver installs. (print drivers, software installs, etc..) Any thoughts on how to resolve this?

Below are the things that I have listed to ignore.

Hi NY Giants,

Could u plz share the logs or error msg for above. Also I am not confirm above the exclusion path for local folders for DLP agents. It seems to be Drivers program files exclusion issue or may be virus issue.

hi NYGiants,

please add exception for monitoring the *C:\Program Files\  with the file type that are associated drivers.

else uninstall the DLP agent from machine and install the drive and then initaite DLP agent installaltion activity.

Thanks Kishorial-


I tried that as well but that didnt work. Do i need to put commas after each folder destination that I listed or is it ok to just keep it the way that it is?

Maybe thats the issue?

Add exception for monitoring the *C:\Program Files\ which will apply for all program files.for file type u may need commos after each file type.
