Adding a global exclude entry

You add a global exclude entry to exclude files from all layers on the computer. A computer can have any number of global exclude entries.

See Adding exclude entries to virtual software layers.

Global excludes are set on each computer and are not exported when a virtual software layer is exported. To transfer global excludes you can export the global excludes from the registry and then import them on another computer.

See Transferring global excludes to another computer.

You can configure a layer to ignore the global excludes.

See Ignoring the global exclude list for a single layer
