With protected mode turned on I get the following errors in my Protected Mode log file

 

Invalid path: \??\Scsi0:
Invalid path: \??\Scsi0:
Invalid path: \??\Scsi1:
Invalid path: \??\Scsi1:
Invalid path: \??\PhysicalDrive0
NtOpenKey: STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

Does anyone know the proper syntax to add to my protected mode policy file to allow access?

What are you actually trying to read, and where do the names come from? Surely Acrobat can't usefully read a raw drive, but what am I missing?

The call is part of the 3rd party licensing libraries used by my plugin. It uses the a value derived from the hard drive
volume serial number. I have no problem getting this value when not running in protected mode, but with protected mode turned on the call fails and the posted output is what appears in the logfile.
