Once an application is locked by AppLocker, a user cannot execute the locked process name on that machine until an Administrator unlocks the application using AppLocker. Whenever the locked program is accessed, it gives out an error.
If AppLocker is intended for multiple machines, it should be installed on one machine, then the target folder is to be copied to a shared location and the executable file should be run from that location. This makes AppLocker to be installed only on one machine.
The configuration of AppLocker is very quick and easy. AppLocker is a handy application to prevent unauthorized access to applications on any PC.
