It is not possible to specify only the program name.You can use wildcards in place of drive letters and program names. Use a question mark (?) to represent single-character data, such as a drive letter. Use an asterisk (*) to represent multi-character data, such as a program name.Important: Wildcards cannot be used to represent folder names. The exact name of a folder must be specified.Correct Usage of Wildcards:
