There are occasionally false positives on our .exe installer triggered by certain security programs. Those security programs have not "whitelisted" us yet, but we are trying to partner with them to get us on the list. It can be a slow process for small companies.
To attempt to avoid these alerts, use our enterprise installer.
Additionally, most security programs have local whitelist configurations that will suppress the alerts. Contact your local IT to get Poll Everywhere added to the whitelist.
Here is the full list of files: security justification.
Finding these files
Most of the above are in the Poll Everywhere install directory. This location could vary depending on how you installed the Poll Everywhere addin, or if you picked a specific location during install.
We will dive into how to find the Poll Everywhere install directory in a moment.
To find any file on your machine, you can do the following:
Step 1: From the Start menu, choose All Programs→Accessories→Command Prompt, or search for cmd
Step 2: Type
cd / and press Enter.
This command propels you to the root directory (folder) on the main hard drive.
Step 3: Type dir and a space.
Step 4: Type the name of the file you’re looking for.
Step 5: Type another space and then /s, a space, and /p.
- The /s option directs a search of all folders on the hard drive
- the /p option pauses the display after each screen of text.
The command will look something like this:
dir vulkan-1.dll /s /p
Step 6: Press the Enter key.
The results display one screen at a time. That is a fun and fast way to find the location of any file on your hard drive!
Back to finding the install location of Poll Everywhere. You can use the same tips as we did above. This particular file is in the Poll Everywhere directory.
dir PEPPTAddin.dll /s /p
The result will be the install directory of Poll Everywhere.
