    Default [SOLVED] ZAfree13:How to prevent permission dialog for progs. that changes frequently

    As a developer, I compile my apps "under development" every so many minutes to look at the results, but after every new compilation I am confronted with the confirmation dialog to permit this "new" app to do what it is supposed to do.
    Is there a way to circumvent this behaviour?
    I use Zonealarm free 2015.
    Thanks for any help!

    Default Re: repeating permission dialog

    I am not sure this option is available at all in ZAfree but in retail versions of ZA you go to ZA application control --> View Programs --> Select the file you do not want to be warned --> Click on "options" button then check "Program changes Frequently" and/or "Authenticate Program by full path name only".

    Please be aware that security wise this obviously is not recommended as that file/folder will have free ride on the system.

    If ZAfree does not have those options the only way to stop the pop-up is to fully turn OFF application control.

    Please note that a reboot of the system may be needed to allow for the above changes to take effect.

    Thanks,
    Fax

    Setting authentication options

    You can specify whether a program is authenticated by using its full pathname or by its
    components. By default, all programs are authenticated by their components.

    The options button is indeed disabled in the free version, so I bought a license for the Pro version. Options are enabled now and setting them according to your instructions solved the problem. No more popups.
    Thanks for your info!
