Launch Without FIPS 1.0

Execute any program on your computer by temporarily disabling the FIPS compliancy and deactivating the corresponding group policy
Launch Without FIPS is a command-line application that you can use to launch any application that is not compliant with the Federal Information Processing Standard on your computer.

Delivered inside a lightweight package, this simple application can detect whether the "System cryptography: Use FIPS compliant algorithms for encryption, hashing, and signing" group policy is enabled and take the necessary measures to deactivate it, so that you can run non-FIPS programs.

Launch Without FIPS saves you the trouble of manually disabling the group policy each time you want to launch an application that is not compatible with the FIPS standard. It also comes in handy for software developers who want to build an application that can run on PCs having the FIPS algorithm activated.

The advantage of Launch Without FIPS is that its actions are temporary, which means that when you terminate the application you launched, the FIPS compliance is active again.

In order
to use it, you have to launch a command prompt window with administrator privileges and use the location of the application you want to run as an argument for Launch Without FIPS.
