Protected processes (Industry 8.1)


When you protect a process, Dialog Filter does not perform the default action on any window created by the protected process. Windows that are specifically blocked are still blocked, even if they are created by a process that is protected.

Protecting a process has an effect only when the default action for Dialog Filter is set to Close.


On the Protected Processes window in Embedded Lockdown Manager (ELM), you can use the following commands:

  • Default Action
    You can select Show or Close as the default action. Show is selected by default.
  • Protect a different process
    Opens a file browser dialog box in which you can select an executable file on the device to mark as a protected process.
  • Unprotect process
    Removes the currently selected process from the list of protected processes.
