Consider the following scenario:

  • You have Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway Client installed on a firewall client computer.

  • You have a program that is installed on a computer, and the program's absolute path is very long. For example, the program is installed to a folder that is many levels deep from the drive root.

  • The program requires an Internet connection.

When you try to start the program in this scenario, the program does not start.

Note This problem does not occur if the client computer uses Firewall Client for ISA Server instead of Forefront Threat Management Gateway Client.


To resolve this problem, install the hotfix rollup that is described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
