Error executing binary because of corporate policy (Windows)

Problem

Snyk is trying to run files from AppData but that is not allowed under the customer's corporate policy.

Solution

As part of operations of the Snyk CLI, it extracts different files and executables to a temporary folder, which for Windows is located in C:\Users\<userprofile>\AppData\.

If running files from this location is not allowed by group policy or other security restrictions, set the environment variable SNYK_CACHE_PATH on each machine. This will override the directory Snyk uses for the cache.
