Install on Windows 10 Enterprise IoT with UWF enabled

Has anyone installed XDR on windows 10 or 11 running UWF.  I am assuming I need to exclude some folders to make it work properly?  I thought I saw something but not having any luck.

Hi @bschaper


Although Cortex XDR does support Windows 10 Enterprise IoT for agent 7.8 according to the compatibility matrix, the UWF feature is currently unsupported. Once our engineers are able to test UWF’s interactions with Cortex XDR to greater extents, a compatibility update may be made. However, there is no guarantee that this will occur. 


For more information regarding the status of UWF’s compatibility alongside the Cortex XDR agent, please refer to your assigned account team.

Well I would love to see support added, from Microsoft it looks like just defining registry keys and which files need to be excluded to allow updating is all that is needed for Defender. I would hate to have to support multiple malware solutions.
