PowerGadgets on WXP - Execution Policy prevents running


Recommended Posts

There is a registry value at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Software FX, Inc.\PowerGadgets\1.0 called ExecutionPolicy with the following possible values:


Only allow digitally signed PGFs to be run, the signature has to be trusted in the computer


Only run remote files if they have been signed, remote files are file that were downloaded by Internet Explorer and similar apps. You can check if a file is remote by viewing its properties and checking if there is an unblock button.


Run all files

Our default value is AllSigned if the registry key is not found.

Please note that you should only run PGFs from trusted sources, because a PGF is running as the currently logged user and can invoke powershell scripts it could run malicious code.

If you are running a very old PowerGadgets build you might have to replace "Software FX, Inc." with "PowerGadgets, LLC" in the registry key.
