    Cause: Beyond Trust has seen this issue with some of their customers and LANDesk. PBWD will load the DLLs when the process executable starts, to enable detection if elevated rights are needed, and whenever other items are set to detect. After PBWD unloads from the process, some programs have problems with this. The two from LANDesk that has issues with this are rcgui.exe and issclipexec.

     

     

    Resolution: BeyondTrust is aware of this conflict.  It can be resolved by  having at least client version 4.9.1 and creating the following  registry string value:

     

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\BeyondTrust\PrivilegeManager
    ExcludedProfilerApps=C:\PROGRA~2\LANDesk\LDClient\rcgui.exe;C:\PROGRA~2\LANDesk\LDClient\issclipexec.exe

     

    Or you can create the following batch job to send out to your machines:

     

    reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\BeyondTrust\PrivilegeManager" /v "ExcludedApps" /d "C:\Program Files\LANDesk\LDClient\issuser.exe;C:\PROGRA~1\LANDesk\LDClient\issuser.exe;C:\Program Files\LANDesk\LDClient\rcgui.exe;C:\PROGRA~1\LANDesk\LDClient\rcgui.exe" /f
