    >>>How to protect user to remove VSE

    abojama

      Hi All !

       

      In my VSE lab test, I can protect user to terminate the VSE processes and setting in VSE.

      Now I want to protect user to remove VSE by using Add/Remove program in Control Panel.

      I know that if user remove VSE, McAfee Agent will get policy to install it again. (loop uninstall-install)

      I'm not sure about McAfee that has function same the TrendMicro or not to disable/remove program just have admin password.

       

      Thank you.

       

      PS. my environment test : ePO 5.1 + VSE 8.8 + a Win7 client

          With the installation designer you can create a custom VSE package. There are a few options available from: Allow user to uninstall, Allow user to modify features and Show in control panel.

           

          I don't know if this is possible with command line options during the installation.

            Modify the registry to prevent VSE being removed:
            1. Click Start, Run, type regedit, and press ENTER.
            2. Navigate to and select the appropriate registry key below:
            For 32-bit systems: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{CE15D1B 6-19B6-4D4D-8F43-CF5D2C3356FF}
            For 64-bit systems: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninst all\{CE15D1B6-19B6-4D4D-8F43-CF5D2C3356FF}

            3. Right-click in the right-pane and select New, DWORD value.
            4. Name the new value NoRemove and press ENTER.
            5. Double-click NoRemove, set the Value data to 1, and click OK.
            6. Right-click in the right-pane and select New, DWORD value.
            7. Name the new value NoModify and press ENTER.
            8. Double-click NoModify, set the Value data to 1, and
            click OK.
