cannot run unsigned smtp4dev.exe as Administrator during startup on Windows 7 Ultimate x64 because of UAC

description

Hi.
 
I cannot run smtp4dev.exe as Administrator during startup on Windows 7 Ultimate x64 because it is unsigned and UAC is turned on.
 
There are a couple of work-arounds:
  1. disable UAC
  2. sign smtp4dev.exe.
  3. use a third party utility that will launch smtp4dev.exe (maybe like hstart http://www.ntwind.com/software/utilities/hstart.html)

I'd like to solve this problem by getting a code signing certificate and signing the EXE as suggested. If anyone reading this would like this to happen then please consider donating some funds to the project so I can afford to do this.

Thanks
Rob
