Updated: June 1, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To perform this procedure, you must be logged on locally to the administration Web site with a domain user account that is a member of the Administrators group. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.

Exclusion policies are enforced by the client at the time the use license is bound to the protected content.

Excluding Applications or Stop Excluding Applications

To Exclude Applications

  1. Log on to computer with a user account that is a member of the local Administrators group.

  2. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Windows RMS, and then click Windows RMS Administration to open the Global Administration page.

  3. Next to the Web site on which you want to control which versions of applications can be used with rights-protected content, click Administer RMS on this Web site.

  4. In the Administration links area, click Exclusion policies.

  5. In the Application exclusion area, click Enable to exclude an RMS-enabled application or component.

    To disable application exclusion, click Disable.

  6. Type the file name of the application or component to be excluded, type the minimum and maximum versions to be excluded (in the format x.x.x.x), and then click Exclude this application.

    To delete an application (or component) from the exclusion list, select the file name, and then click Delete selected applications from the exclusion list.

    noteNote
    RMS requires the application version to be specified in a 4-digit period delimited format (#.#.#.# ). However, some applications specify their application version with 2-digit or 3-digit period delimited numbers. In this case, you should append a .0 as appropriate to make the version number match the format required by RMS.

To Stop Excluding Applications

  1. Open the Global Administration page, and then, next to the Web site on which you want to control which versions of applications can be used with rights-protected content, click Administer RMS on this Web site.

  2. In the Administration links area, click Exclusion policies.

  3. In the Application exclusion area, click Disable.

For more information about performing this procedure, see "Excluding Applications" earlier in this subject.
