    How to Export and Import AppLocker Policy for Rules in Windows 10

    AppLocker advances the app control features and functionality of Software Restriction Policies. AppLocker contains new capabilities and extensions that allow you to create rules to allow or deny apps from running based on unique identities of files and to specify which users or groups can run those apps.

    packaged apps (aka: Microsoft Store apps), and packaged app installers.

    AppLocker policies can only be configured on and applied to computers that are running on the supported versions and editions of the Windows operating system. You can configure AppLocker policies on any edition of Windows 10, but you can only manage (enforce) AppLocker on devices running Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education.

    You can export an AppLocker policy from a computer running any edition of Windows 10, and import the AppLocker Policy to any computer running Windows 10 Enterprise or Windows 10 Education.

    Exporting and importing an AppLocker policy from a computer can be used as a way to backup an restore your AppLocker policy, or to apply it on another computer.

    How to set up AppLocker restrictions on Windows 10 Pro?

    Dude, thanks for the info and sorry for my late reply. I've been bashing my head against it but I still can't make it work. I did everything like it says there but it still didn't do anything. It doesn't block anything. The only difference that I see in your tutorial is this line:

    Like I said I have Pro.

    Start menu/ms-settings not working Windows 10

    Yes I can see that, but I'm running Windows 10 Home edition.

    To terminate AppLocker rule enforcement


    • Backup the Group Policy Object (GPO) that contains the currently applied AppLocker rules.

    • Delete all the AppLocker rules on that GPO. For steps how to do this, see the topics in

      AppLocker Policy Procedures
      .

    • Push out the GPO that now contains the empty AppLocker policy to the affected client computers. For steps how to do this, see

      Refresh an AppLocker Policy
      .

    • Disable the AppLocker service (appidsvc) on all the affected client computers. Optionally, you can restart the service. For steps how to do this, see

      Configure the Application Identity Service
      . Alternatively, you can disable the AppLocker service using Group Policy instead of locally.

    • Optionally, if you want to update the computers with another set of AppLocker rules (and the service has been enabled), you force a Group Policy update for the revised AppLocker policy. For steps how to do this, see

      Refresh an AppLocker Policy
      .

    There is no Group policy object editor available here. Also
    AppIDSvc
    is stopped and can't be manually started. Error: "The operation could not be completed. The dependency service or group failed to start" due to fact, that AppLocker is not available in Home and Pro edition.

    So why is it blocking the reinstallation, I don't know?
