Allow applications access to Local Smart Card readers

If enabled, applications will be able to access all 'local' Smart Card readers even when the Smart Card Redirection feature is installed.

This setting does not apply to RDP or to RDSH hosts when the Remote Desktop Services role is enabled.

When enabled the desktop will be monitored for the presence of a local reader and when detected the smartcard redirection will switch off allowing access to the local readers. The redirection will remain off until the next time the user connects to the session.

NOTE: When local access is enabled, applications can no longer access remote readers present on the client.

This setting is disabled by default.
