There is a 3.70 which was the last official release before we took over. Try using it and see if the problems are there as well.

Crimson Editor 3.70 works perfectly under Windows 7 and Windows Vista, without any UAC dialogs.

The solution to this problem should be of highest priority. For example, I was already looking for an alternative editor (Notepad++ ?) before finding this "downgrade" proposal.

By the way, the exe in Reply #13 did not solved the problem in my Windows 7.

When investigating the issue of UAC I found the following discussion:

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/windowssecurity/thread/6d870287-e364-4151-851d-70605c0e6a6d/

Following that I changed:
<trustInfo xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3">
to:
<trustInfo xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v2">

in Manifest.xml

Also I cleaned "Additional Manifest Files" in the project settings.

Below is a build that runs without trigerring UAC on Vista 32-bit where it was compiled with VS 2008 and Win 7 64-bit. Maybe it could be also tested on other computers.

Thanks for posting that.  Works on Windows 7 64 bit without triggering UAC (and allows drag and drop).  The only issue is that it pops up with "unknown publisher" and asks if it's ok to run that app.  Better than triggering UAC, but sounds like something easy to fix.   I don't think my compile had the "unknown publisher" issue.

But as I said, I'm a noob when it comes to compiler stuff.  Most of my programming has been PHP with some VBA thrown in.  Nothing I've had to mess with VS for.

Unknown publisher is reported when the executable is not signed. It is quite typical for non-commercial files as the signing process requires getting an official certificate. I think the files compiled locally are exempted from such a checking. Anyway on my computer (Vista and Win 7) Only some files are reported as unknown and there is a tick to disable such an alarm in the future. Eventually you may check how your system reacts to another not signed program like notepad++ for instance.

I just unchecked the box that said "tell me every time".  I tend not to turn off errors just so there's a reminder of something to possibly fix or follow up on, but since this only affects that one executable and it's a system-wide "don't tell me", I just turned it off.

It still has UAC issue on my PC. Thank you anyway!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! 

I have been using Windows 7 for a month now, and of course one of the first things I installed was Crimson Editor, which I use every day.   I was on SVN286, not SVN263, but it has all of the same issues.  The UAC alerts are a nuisance, but if you can't double click on a file to open it or drag and drop it onto the editor window to open it, usability goes way down.  I was seriously thinking I would have to move to another editor.  Now I know I can just downgrade.  I installed 3.60 (before I hit the next page and saw that I could have used 3.70).  Problem solved!

It's on my todo list. Just sadly (or not sadly depending on your point of view) I am very busy in work atm and have had no time to do anything with CE.

Thanks! Working on my Win7 x64.

This is becoming something of a showstopper... I tend to wait quite long before switching to the latest Windows version, so when the issue still persists when I finally caved in and installed Win7, it must affect most other users running on a default install as administrators Smiley

Yes, of course the unsigned-ness causes a prompt that can be dismissed permanently.

I had an issue clicking "edit" in Filezilla and being denied...  running Filezilla as admin fixed my problem.

The file type associations in Filezilla allow me to directly open files in Emerald which is much more convenient... of course now I need to remember to open Filezilla as admin each time.

Looking forward to an official release that does not require UAC prompt.
