This article describes the PermittedComputers and PermittedComputersAccessDeniedMsg parameters, which can be used in the Package.ini configuration file for ThinApp projects.
Application policy does not permit execution on this computer. Contact Administrator.
There is no limit in ThinApp to the number of characters in PermittedComputersAccessDeniedMsg, although Windows may restrict the number of characters.
Where you set these parameters in Package.ini
You can set these two parameters just in the [BuildOptions] section of Package.ini or in both [BuildOptions] and in individual entry point sections ([<AppName>.exe]).

Only computers in the AccountingDesktops group can use this entry point of the application.[<entrypoint2>.exe]No entry for PermittedComputers within an entry point means that the entry point inherits the value of PermittedComputers from [BuildOptions].

The PermittedComputers and PermittedComputersAccessDeniedMsg parameters were unofficially supported beginning with ThinApp 4.0.1 and now are officially supported.
A related parameter, the PermittedGroups parameter, causes ThinApp to check if a user is within a specified list of Active Directory Groups who are permitted to use the virtual application. See the entries for PermittedGroups and AccessDeniedMsg in:
