Non-runnable Files

By default, Cherwell Asset Management only inventories runnable files, meaning those with .exe or .com extensions. To inventory non-runnable files, use the Add Extension dialog box to specify that Cherwell Asset Management should inventory files with extensions other than .exe and .com.


  • Non-runnable files cannot be configured into license units, and are not visible in the Files panel unless you search for them.
  • The information in this topic applies to Windows machines only.
