UAC Prompts

May 5, 2016 at 10:33 AM
Hi, I just stumbled on your project- which sounds great. However, I get UAC prompts for RuleManager and Notifier. Is there a work around for this or a plan to sign the code?

Hello canufrank.

I am not sure if Wokhan has any plans on fixing the UAC prompts. I have not heard any word from any of the developers from WFN for a while now, so I am not even sure if anyone is still working on this.

Thank you for using WFN.

(Sorry for the recent silence; I am in the middle of a move.)

The UAC-prompt are necessary, because the RuleManager needs Administrator access to modify the firewall rules. This can be worked around, but then WFN would need a real installer, and looses its lightweight properties. Of course, it's an option, but one I'd rather not implement unless it's absolutely necessary.
