    I am using Windows 7 x64 with 8 GB of ram. I use the crimson editor
    ( ) out of my c:\bin directory (which is
    in my path). I invoke the crimson editor frequently from command
    prompt windows, using the command cedt. However, each time I invoke
    the crimson editor, the screen goes dim and UAC panel comes up and
    asks me if cedt.exe from an unknown publisher can make changes to this
    computer. Is there a way to stop the UAC for just cedt.exe ?

  2. No. Crimson needs to fix their application, which must be writing a
    temporary file or other information into a protected area. One workaround on
    a machine with that level of horsepower is to use Windows Virtual PC and
    XPMode. This leverages TS RAIL technology to have that application (running
    in your virtual 32-bit XP machine) behave as if it were natively running on
    your desktop. XPMode is only available in Professional and above, however,
    not in Home Premium.
