white list I quess

Postby veterrimus » Thu Apr 23, 2015 7:25 am

I have updated Calibre to 2.25 (64-bit) and can't seem to get it to run except by unchecking %appdat% on the software restrictions policies. I have tried setting whitelist policies as follows

%appdata%\calibre\
%userprofile%\AppData\Local\calibre\
%userprofile%\AppData\LocalLow\calibre\
%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\calibre\

As far as I can tell %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Temp contains six folders prefixed with calibre_ that seem to be used when reading or maintaining library; %userprofile%\AppData\Local contains a folder calibre-cache; %userprofile%\AppData\LocalLow doesn't have a calibre folder right now; %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming contains a calibre folder and subfolders with some .py, .json, .pickle and .plist files. There is a subfolder plugins that has some .zip files.

My library is on another data disk.

With %appdat% checked all calibre does is display the splash screen and a message initializing user interface. Via task manager it just stalls and uses no time.

Is this the correct way to configure a whitelist policy?

Whitelisting you have to specify the specific files you would like to allow execution. It won't work with just the folder added.
