Example 1: Get an AppLocker policy

PS C:\> Get-AppLockerPolicy -Local
                                Version RuleCollections                         RuleCollectionTypes

This example gets the AppLocker policy of the unique GPO specified by the LDAP path as an AppLockerPolicy object.

Example 3: Get the effective policy

PS C:\> Get-AppLockerPolicy -Effective -Xml | Set-Content ('c:\temp\curr.xml')

This example gets the effective policy on the computer, and then sends it in XML-format to the specified file on an existing path.

Example 4: Get and test an AppLocker policy

PS C:\> Get-AppLockerPolicy -Local | Test-AppLockerPolicy -Path C:\Windows\System32\*.exe -User Everyone
