    Embedded Lockdown Manager (Industry 8.1)

    That showed up on the fresh install from the 'Media Creation Tool' download, (after cleaning up from my 'train wreck'!)
    It's not un-installable either, I'd have to delete the .exe!
    A left over from the previous install maybe? Could you post the location of the exe file? I'd like to see if its on my system. I don't see it listed in Turn Windows features on off. Just to confirm, this is showing up in your Windows 8.1 install correct?

    I don't have that file, I have embeddedapplauncher.exe and EmbeddedAppLauncherConfig.dll. That's an MSC file, I do believe that is a Microsoft Snap In. That's a bit out of my expertise level. I asked for more info because this the first I've heard of this Embedded Lockdown Manager. The Embedded part just doesn't make sense on your regular version of Windows? I'm no IT Pro though so a lot of things that don't make sense to me. Is it causing you any issues?

    EDIT: Looks like I do have that file, I just looked on the wrong PC. See my other post later in this thread.

    Naw, no issues.
    I'll delete the shortcut, that's good enough!

    Windows 10 Pro x64 FCU - XP/Vista/Win7/Win8.1 in VM for testing

    Looks like a piece of missed un needed code that should be removed from the retail SKUs

    Now available: Embedded Lockdown Manager update for Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry - Windows Embedded Blog - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

    If it's still operatable in the normal retail it may be of use in commercial operations to lockdown and control user options - like a super group policy editor to cover modern apps

    Edit, the last paragraph in the link states it's available as an option on retail SKUs so I suppose it's in case you want to run a touchscreen PC as a kiosk device and lockdown the charms etc

    I just noticed something interesting? On my desktop PC that has Windows 8.1 Pro installed from my MSDN ISO, there is no trace of this Embedded Lockdown Manager. However, on my laptop which is running 8.1 Pro, installed with Media created by the Media Creation Tool, its there and usable. I wonder what else is different between the two? And why its included on one but not the other?

    Is the laptop touchscreen? only reason that jumps out at me given the use of the panel

    No touchscreen, just a touchpad. I am going to be doing a clean install of 8.1 Pro on my desktop in the next day or two. I plan on using the Media Creation Tool ISO. I'll make note as to whether the Embedded Lockdown Manager is installed or not.
