We're using windows GPs to prevent students from running all exes (except those on the "Allowed app list") and this works great with Application Window (nalwin.exe) because it's on the allowed list, and all apps are opened as a child process of it.

However, we're now using Application Explorer (nalview.exe) to distribute apps to users on the desktop. I've added nalview.exe to the allowed apps list thinking it would open apps on the desktop as child processes, but this is not the case, the apps will not open. I do know there is a "middle man" process launching the app since the apps, Internet Explorer for example, will not open even if I add it to the allowed apps list.

I'm not sure how to find out the process, does anyone have any ideas?
