    When attempting to save a configuration to the Management Center in the Application Control Console as a standard user, the following error is displayed and the Application Control Console may crash.


    An error occurred while discovering the Custom Rule condition schemas

    System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'C:\ProgramData\AppSense\User SxS assemblies' is denied.

    This behaviour is seen when the Application Control Console is installed on a machine where the Ivanti Deployment Agent (Client Communication Agent) is already installed.


    This has now been raised as a Known Issue:



    To workaround this behaviour please do the following.


    1. Create the following folder on the affected machine as an Administrator


    • C:\ProgramData\AppSense\User SxS assemblies


    2. Grant the affected user(s) Modify permissions on the "User SxS assemblies" folder
