ENS On-Access Exclusions Variables

Jump to solution

Hello,

are these environment variables allowed regarding exclusions:

%ProgramFiles(x86)%\...
%ProgramFiles%\...
%systemdrive%\...

As ENS scans on system tier, it´s not possible to use %Userprofile%.

BR,

Hi @ePO-early-bird 

System Environmental Variables such as %SystemRoot% can be used in exclusions. User Environmental Variables such as %UserProfile% can't be used, because the on‑access scanner runs under the Windows Local System account.
