Winfsp not detected

We use the Windows policy “Prevent access to registry editing tools”. This blocks reg.exe, which results in winfsp not being availlable as a volume type. Can this be fixed by reading registry keys the proper way just like any normal program?

Welcome to the Cryptomator Community :slightly_smiling_face:

There is no fix, because this is not a bug.

I would also be careful when using words like “normal” and “proper”. When you are writing a windows native application using C# or C++, the proper way might be using the Windows API directly, because c++ or c# endpoints are offered. But Cryptomator is written in Java, therefore calling reg.exe in a subprocess and parse the result is as good as writing errorprone JNI code.

That said, it can be changed. You are welcome to open a feature request on our issue tracker.
