How to: Manually scan an endpoint for Application Control Whitelisting

    Purpose

    A new button has been added in the agent control panel that lets you manually start an application scan. The resulting XML file can be added into the Application Library to white list the files or folders.

    Fill in the Source (which folder or file you want the scanned), Destination (where you want the resulting .xml file saved when the scan completes). The Temporary file extraction location can be left alone or changed as needed.

    Then select Start Scan.

    The final screen will display the directory path and the file name of the saved file. The directory path can be clicked and will open the folder in Windows Explorer. Just a recommendation: do not open the resulting xml file in notepad if it is large.
