Windows Application Control blocking applications ("blocked for your protection")

We are aware of a problem occurring after recent Windows 10 updates where core application such as the Agent Server are actively prevented from running.

This may occur in the following versions:

  1. Adroit 8.x
  2. MAPS 3.x
  3. Adroit 10.0.4.x
  4. MAPS 4.0.4.x

Adroit 8 and MAPS 3 customers that suffer from this problem can download the updated version below
