Appsense Allow access to Network Drive executables

When using Appsense Application Manager to lockdown your environment you may well discover as i have that there is alot of executable code contained on network file shares.

The default Appsense Application Manager config only allows code to be executed from the fixed disks on your device. (eg. C:\ Drive)

To get round this blocking you can either add all the network paths to the "accessible item" list or do as i did and wildcard network shares with the rule \\*

NOTE : Best practice would be to get the code moved to a fixed disk on the server to improve performance. This solution would also prevent appsense from blocking it be default. In my case re-engineering the applications was not in scope of the task.
