What does your log say on the csamc, any deny rules triggered related to Lingvo ?

Also, you should take a look in your local agent gui, look in the untrusted applications, if lingvo is in there, this could be the cause, normally because it as downloaded/installed via a webbrowser

Thank, Ian!

I find this log

The process 'C:\Program  Files\ABBYY Lingvo 12\LvAgent.exe' (as user ToX1c1986) attempted to insert  code ('C:\Program Files\ABBYY Lingvo 12\LvHook.dll') into another process. All  processes were targeted. The operation was denied.

I find rule  " 1300 Untrusted Apps (not White List), Inject code into every application" In White List I add "$Directories - Program Files [V6.0.1 r98]"

But! In my company CSA now in Audit Mode only my computer not, I`am testing and when I try generate rules I see

"Modify application class Administrator defined - White List Applications [W, V6.0.1 r98] (read-only override)"

read-only override -  does it mean that all computers which in Audit Mode after generate this rule will not in Audit Mode anymore?

No, it is an indication of you changing a read only policy, you should not add the whole program files directory to white list that would be bad, also only add the offending application in the csamc white list feature , not in the application class "Administrator defined - White List Applications [W, V6.0.1 r98]", you should not modify built-in polcies unless absolutely unavoidable.

Yes, that is where you should your own white listed applications, You can't cancel a generate, but if you remove the program files class where you added it, the new rules will be the same, and no change will be done to the agents. Of course if you add the lingvo app to the white list, it will generate a new policy, but it won't affect hosts that are in audit mode.

You can create new entries in the white list manually like you did, or use the wizard button when you find an event in the csamc that you wan't to create an exeption for, the wizard will give you the choice of white listing the application that triggered the event.
