Neither of rbon's executables gets rid of the "unknown publisher" dialog box for me. Dragging and dropping still does not work, either. They both work just as well as the SVN286 executable available on sourceforge.jszpilewski's executable
works, but I am assuming it is based on SVN263, since Crimson Editor SVN286 had not yet been released to sourceforce when it was made. I looked at the MSDN thread
from which jszpilewski obtained the original information. I didn't read the whole thread, but I did find out how to manipulate embedded executable manifests using the manifest tool that comes with all Visual Studio versions, including the Express editions (i.e., mt.exe).
I was able to export the manifests from the SVN286 executable and jszpilewski's working executable and compare them. I made what looked to be the appropriate changes and replaced the manifest in the SVN286 executable with the modified manifest without having to rebuild. To clarify, I don't see where the following change was made in the manifest embedded in jszpilewski's executable.
Following that I changed:
It still references the "asm.v3" namespace, as far as I can tell. The biggest difference I see is in the requestedExecutionLevel tag as follows.
<requestedExecutionLevel level="asInvoker" uiAccess="false"></requestedExecutionLevel>
I have attached the "patched" SVN286 executable. It works on my Windows 7 x64 system. Just back up cedt.exe from your original Crimson Editor installation and drop this in as a replacement. I do hope that it works for you, but the important thing is that it works for me.
