Adding CurrentWare to your Antivirus’ Exclusion Lists

Adding CurrentWare to your Antivirus’ Exclusion Lists

Antivirus can sometimes interrupt with the functionalities of CurrentWare.

If you have any 3rd party antivirus or firewall installed on your client computers, we would recommend adding the following CurrentWare files to your antivirus exclusion list (also known as exceptions list or allowed list on some antivirus).


Files to Exclude for the CurrentWare Clients

Exclude all the files from this folder

C:\Windows\SysWOW64\wcsystck\

*for 32-bit OS, the directory is C:\Windows\System32\wcsystck\


Files to Exclude for the CurrentWare Server

C:\Program Files (x86)\CurrentWare\cwServer\cwServer.exe
C:\Program Files (x86)\CurrentWare\cwServer\CWSM.exe
C:\Program Files (x86)\CurrentWare\cwConsole\cwConsole.exe
C:\Program Files (x86)\CurrentWare\cwClient\cwClientSetup.exe

*for 32-bit OS, the directory is C:\Program Files\CurrentWare\
