Add automatic launching of executable from IE in protected mode

When opening Internet explorer on XenApp 6.5 – we would get a prompt that a program is trying to open outside of Internet explorer’s protected mode.


This program will open outside of Protected mode. Internet Explorer’s Protected mode helps protect your computer. If you do not trust this website, do not open this program.

Other applications can be added in here like Excel, Power point, word etc to enable the programs to open without prompting natively from IE’s protected mode.

      Looks like everything after Elevation Policy varies from ICA client to ICA client… fun fun – least we now know where to look in the registry for it! 🙂
