How do I use the override.ini feature for software inventory?

I've read the help file multiple times but I'm still not clear as to how the override.ini works.  I have a specfic folder I am trying to exclude that is located in C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.    There is an override.ini section in the scanner generator but I am not sure what it is for because the help file indicates you should place an override.ini in the same folder as the scanner.

 

I'm finding the scanner located in C:\Windows.  Is that where I place override.ini?  How do I format the exclusion?

 

I've tried:

 

[exclude]

dir=/Program Files/Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

 

Thanks!

Hello Adam ,

 

I hope you are doing well .

 


We can specify the file systems and directories (known to the Scanner Generator) that you want to include or exclude during scanning, you can override the settings of the file systems and specific directories and files during software scanning by using the content in the override files. The one Universal Discovery specific file included in the list is the override file, called override.ini on Windows systems and .override.ini on UNIX/Mac OS X systems. This is an ASCII file used by the scanner at runtime
to store a list of files to be ignored (that is not opened at run-time).

 

Please review and follow the steps that the HP Data Flow Management guide page 538 provide.

As I indicated in my initial post I have reviewed the help file multiple times and have not had much luck.  I'm looking for more specifics and clarification.
