Quote from: aDVll on April 15, 2016, 11:40:54 AMWeird. My internet explorer created the Browser folder that has access to it. I think this is the intended function. You don't have a browser folder?
Quote from: aDVll on April 15, 2016, 12:10:29 PMPermissions only allow administrator to write in C:\ReHIPS. When you launch an application isolated it doesn't have admin rights so it can't write there. The Browser folder on the other hand can be written by normal users that's why it works.
Quote from: aDVll on April 15, 2016, 12:25:27 PMWhat i don't understand is why i can't access the files from an isolated app if i give it access from permission tab in the gui.For example i give permission to C:\Users\Admin\test pic for Firefox(isolated). When i open firefox and try to browse to that account folder i don't see it. Any idea why it's happening?
Quote from: fixer on April 14, 2016, 01:38:33 PMIf you have Copy User Data flag set, it's possible. For example you have C:\Users\HJLBX\Pictures\picture.bmp you wish to open in isolated Paint. You start isolated Paint (don't forget to set Copy User Data flag), File-Open menu, navigate to C:\Users\ReHIPSUserX\Pictures (Paint isolated ReHIPS User) or C:\Users\HJLBX\Pictures (doesn't matter which one as the latter will be redirected to the former), type picture.bmp as File name and click Open. Yes, you might not see this file in the list of files in folder as it hasn't been copied to the isolated environment yet. But when you enter the file name and try to open it, it'll be copied and successfully opened.
QuoteIn other words you can block or allow an access to some folder, file or registry entry for all programs in this isolated environment.
Quote from: HJLBX on April 15, 2016, 02:28:20 AMIs there any way to optimize the alerts so that multiple alerts do not appear all at one time ?This commonly occurs during program installations.It has never caused a problem in my experience, but some users complain about HIPS that permit a flurry of alerts to appear all at once.I suppose it causes confusion and\or the user might worry that it will cause errors, problems, failed installs, etc - if they respond to the alerts out-of-sequence with the actual run sequence (asynchronous response to alerts).
Quote from: aDVll on April 15, 2016, 12:55:44 PMwhat is the use of permission tab if it's not to give permission to main account folders? This is what i don't understand.

This is what i don't understand.Permission tab was designed to control access rights to any file/folder except real user profile folder. Real user profile folder is a special folder that is treated specially, any access to it is always redirected to ReHIPS user profile folder. Any other file or folder access is controlled by permission tab.
Quote from: HJLBX on April 15, 2016, 01:32:32 PMSo, if I understand correctly, access rights to folders\files in Isolated Enviornment control panel is for ReHIPSUser profile only.
Quote from: HJLBX on April 15, 2016, 01:32:32 PMCan user add sub-folders manually to C:\ReHIPS without any issues - for example - Pictures folder ?
Quote from: HJLBX on April 16, 2016, 04:22:58 AMIs it possible to configure browser - media player such that when download movie, the media player will open inside a completely different ReHIPSUser - but access the movie data downloaded to browser ReHIPSUser ?In other words, create a movie data pipe between two independent ReHIPSUsers ?
Quote from: umbrapolaris on April 16, 2016, 06:34:45 AMYou can already by navigating from the media player's "open files" function and then access the other ReHIPSUser folders.
