Privilege Management for Windows 5.6 SR3 Release Notes

September 8, 2020


  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 (required to use Activity Viewer, Power Rules, PowerShell audit scripts, and PowerShell API)
  • PowerShell 3.0 (required to use Power Rules, PowerShell audit scripts, and PowerShell API)
  • Microsoft SQL Server Compact 4.0 (required on the endpoint that will run the Activity Viewer console)
  • McAfee Agent (required if you are installing the Privilege Management client with switch EPOMODE=1)

The executable version of the client package includes all necessary prerequisites (excluding .NET Framework 4.0) and automatically installs them as necessary. If you use the MSI or ZIP package, you must manually install any necessary prerequisites.

Issues Resolved:

  • Improved filtering for Content Control rules. Workstyle filters for Content Control are now applied at process start rather than session start; improving performance for users to whom no content rules apply.
  • Resolved issue with the number of Prevent Privilege Account Management (PPAM) events being raised per action.
  • Resolved issue with the Stop-Process remote PowerShell command. The command can now be elevated to stop processes started by a different user.
