As common knowledge suggests, many organizations limit or restrict the
applications used by their employees in order to reduce both the catalog
of supported applications, and support and help desk escalations.
Both Software Restriction policies (SRP) and AppLocker use Group Policy for domain management. However,
when SRP policies and AppLocker policies exist in the same domain and
applied through Group Policy, AppLocker policies will take precedence
over SRP policies on computers running Windows Server 2012, Windows
Server 2008 R2, Windows 8 or Windows 7. For information about how
inheritance in Group Policy applies to AppLocker policies and SRP
policies, see Understanding AppLocker Rules and Enforcement Setting Inheritance in Group Policy.
