Will it still be restricted if they move the game to another folder or
try to run it from a USB ?

They have applied the software restriction policies as path rules.
Would this also stop them running the executables from a pen drive or
another folder?

Or does this block them from running regardless of where the exe resides..?

OR is there some sort of wildcard *.sol.exe for example...
