05: How do I specifically exclude or prevent a component from performing processing by modifying the license file?

A Universal License file will express all the components you are licensed for .

For instance,  you will see lines in the license file like

<component id="608ba33d-af06-46f9-9e6c-62495560024e" name="PolicyPak Preferences"  />

And/Or

<component id="32f17e56-85b0-460f-b029-8eaa332f440b" name="PolicyPak File Association Manager" />

To make a specific component stop performing work and processing, you can modify the license for each component you want to affect like this:

<component id="608ba33d-af06-46f9-9e6c-62495560024e" name="PolicyPak Preferences" enabled="false" />

And/Or

<component id="32f17e56-85b0-460f-b029-8eaa332f440b" name="PolicyPak File Association Manager" enabled="false" />

Note: For the last component in the section you need to use:
enabled="false" > instead of enabled="false" />

For example:
<component id="58de0268-6384-49e0-a333-20ec46654b82" name="PolicyPak Least Privilege Manager" enabled="false" >


Then after the computer picks up the new license (via GPO, MDM, etc.) you can then verify via the PPUPDATE command if the computer will stop processing that component.

The result of modified components via blocked license can be seen here as an example.
