|Priority||urgent||Severity||minor||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Target Version||5.0.4||Fixed in Version||5.0.4|
|Summary||0019144: "Add Windows firewall exception" should not be enabled by default on install|
|Description||You should at least give an option for users to choose that during installation.|
|Fixed in build||2664|
Zvezdan is probably right that it is too agressive and requires accepting UAC prompt on first MM5 run.
However disabling it by default would result in showing the "Windows Security Alert" dialog that creates the blocking rules when user just cancels the dialog.
Then enabling the MM firewall exception deletes the blocking rules (details in 0018264:0064524 )
Assigned to Rusty to decide about the default value.
It _is_ surprising when the user sees the UAC / Firewall prompts without understanding why.
Preferable behavior would be that on first run, in the Setup Wizard's 'Share media' screen, there should be:
[x] Add Windows firewall exception
And when the user clicks [Next] --> the UAC/Firewall prompts appear (and the user understand why they're seeing it).
added the '[x] Add Windows firewall exception' to the 'Share media' screen of the Welcome Wizard in build 22.214.171.12464
To test this temporarily rename:
