AppLocker

If you are experiencing a problem where an application that you have compiled yourself is not allowed to run, it can be because of restrictions that the AppLocker technology is enforcing.

AppLocker is a security technology from Microsoft aimed at restricting the effects of malicious software. It works as a policy and requires application binaries to either be signed, or by restricting the amount of locations from where unsigned applications can be run to a set of narrowly defined explicitly allowed locations. You can read more about AppLocker here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/security/threat-protection/windows-defender-application-control/applocker/applocker-overview

In short, if you place an unsigned application binary in a location which is not explicitly allowed and therefore not trusted, you cannot expect it to be allowed to run.

However, there are some exceptions and folders that are in certain places and that follow a particular naming convention are allowed and can be used for executable files that you have compiled yourself. Please contact LTH Support if you need help with this.
