Application Exceptions

I made a short video today of a test method and wanted to cut together two takes as each had a step the other didn’t.  The OS on the office computers isn’t recent enough to allow me to use Windows Live! Movie Maker so I opted for just Windows Movie Maker through Add/Remove Windows Features.  Partway through the install, I was informed that the application was blocked by group policy which I thought was strange as IIS, Windows web hosting platform, is in no way restricted.  I could create a website hosted from my desktop that was just a directory browser of our internal documents that could be visible to the public in under an hour but I can’t use Windows Movie Maker.  Super.
