We're seeing a strange situation, where some executables won't run from a Windows command prompt (running as admin).
Just running the command (say, filename.exe) gives no response on the console. No errors, no output, nothing.
If we copy over the same Windows .exe from a different folder, it "magically" starts working, and we see the default console output.
(Happens both on Win7 x64, and Win2008R2 x64. Application is running as 32-bit process.)
At the time when it accesses the .exe, I can see events in the application and system logs regarding Windows-Security-SPP, and it makes me believe that the .exe is being blocked from execution.
Does this sound familiar?
