Change jogamp*.exe execution directory

Hi,

I'm trying to get Gephi set up for use in a corporate environment with fairly security tight controls, especially around running executables. When Gephi launches, it creates a file named jogamp_exe_tst*.exe [where the * is actually a random and variable series of digits] in a temp directory under the user's profile, and then attempts to run it. In our situation, this is being blocked: I've been advised that running executables from the user profile is viewed as a security vulnerability.

Is there a way to configure Gephi so this executable would be created and run from within the Gephi install directory, or somewhere else that we specify?

thanks,
David

Hi,

I have the same problem; we cannot run executables from user profile dir.
Does anybody have a solution to get Gephi to work anyhow?

Best regards,
Soeren

JOGL works this way, not our code, can't you trust gephi in your antivirus or whatever? Do you use Gephi 0.9.2?

Yes, we use Gephi 0.92.

It is jogl :( As David descriped, the problem is that jogl is generating a random named file and want to run it. When the filename is random, it is impossible to make a policy that allows it - because we cannot make policies like jogamp_*.exe

There is partly a possible solution here http://forum.jogamp.org/Change-location ... 37528.html
But I cannot make it work. Maybe someone else has made it work?
