Windows Firewall With Advanced Security


I have Windows 8.1 and Windows Firewall with Advanced Security.

When I click on "Check for Updates..." via Help in Roxio Creator NXT 2, the Software Manager fail to check for updates.

If I change Outbound connections to Allow in the Firewall, the Software Manager can check for updates without any problem.


Previously I had Creator 9 installed and had an outbound rule via ProgramFiles (x86)\Common Files\InstallShield\UpdateService\agent.exe with the permission Allow. That worked fine with Windows Firewall with Advanced Security.

I am not able to find equivalent .exe file in Roxio Creator NXT 2.


Appreciate any idea to create an Outbound Rule to allow "Check for Updates...".

A search on my system brings up several hits...


I don´t know how I did my search. I have 4 OS and I guess I searched the wrong OS...


A new search in Windows 8.1 came up with the same result as you did.

It is the 4th agent.exe, C:\ProgramData\FLEXnet\Connect\11 that is to be used in the outbound rule.

Now it works to do a manual search for updates with Windows Firewall with Advanced Security set to Block all.
