I tried to install Firefox within my virtual machine. It is being prevented by a software restriction policy. How do I change this policy?

How do I check on list of software that is restricted by the policy?

Windows cannot open this program because it has been prevented by a software restriction policy. For more information, open Event viewer or contact your system administrator.

Hello Martin,

The error you ARE getting occurs in the following scenarios:

  • You have set the default security level for Software Restriction Policies to Disallowed.
  • You might have created a path rule and then set the security level to Unrestricted.
  • Or you might have configured the path rule to point to a mounted NTFS file system volume.

So check if you have done any of that and rectify.

Regards,

Nicke
