Hi Dan. When you create an IPS exception (page 47 of PD22894 - Host Intrusion Prevention 8.0 for ePO 4.5 Product Guide), you'll want to define the application properties (file description (not your app description, but the description within the EXE file itself; rclick, Properties to get the Description info), path/file name, MD5 hash fingerprint,or signer.) You can either add the application individually, or add the application to the Host IPS 8.0 Catalog and just pull the application data from there (page 70).
Thanks Kary - looks like I'm sorted now.
I didn't realise the file description was the ACTUAL description on the file properties and I also used this tool (http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/hash_my_files.html) to get the MD5 hash of the file. Added the exception and appears to be working!
Thanks for your help.

Just FYI, with HIPS 8.0 you can use the built-in ClientControl tool to get application information.

I did not know that - cheers!
