A. THE BUG/ISSUE (Varies from issue to issue)
[ol]- Summary - Give a clear summary in the topic subject, NOT here.
The group function seems to not work in “Protected COM Interface”.
Can U reproduce the problem & if so how reliably?:
Yes. It happens every time.
If U can, exact steps to reproduce. If not, exactly what U did & what happened:
The reproduce steps are :
Steps of wrong result :
Step 1. Create a group named “GroupA” in COM Interface,
Step 2. Add “C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe” into “GroupA”.
Step 3. Add “GroupA” to “Protected COM Interface” (Allowed) of HashMyFiles’s Exclusions.
Step 4. launch HashMyFiles.
Step 5. Drag a file into the HashMyFiles window.
Step 6. The alert window still popups (The rule does not work).
Steps of correct result :
Step 1. Add “C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe” to “Protected COM Interface” (Allowed) of HashMyFiles’s Exclusions.
Step 2. launch HashMyFiles.
Step 3. Drag a file into the HashMyFiles window.
Step 4. The alert window does not popups anymore (The rule works).
If not obvious, what U expected to happen:
The group function should works fine in all units of HIPS.
If a software compatibility problem have U tried the conflict FAQ?:
It does not look like a software compatibility problem.
Any software except CIS/OS involved? If so - name, & exact version:
HashMyFiles(HashMyFiles: Calculate MD5/SHA1/CRC32 hash of files), 2.01
Any other information, eg your guess at the cause, how U tried to fix it etc:
Guess : it is a(n) bug/issue of CIS.
Try to fix it : Add “C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe” into “Protected COM Interface” of HashMyFiles’s Exclusions without using group.
